We are accepting applications for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020! Northeastern has removed the ACT or SAT score as an admission requirement for Fall 2020 applications. Fall 2020 admitted students can find additional resources online.

Transfer Student Transition Sessions

We are excited to welcome you to the Northeastern family!

If you are a transfer student with 30 or more credit hours, we encourage you to attend a Transfer Student Transition Session to help with a smooth transition into Northeastern Illinois University. 

If you are a transfer student with less than 30 credit hours, you'll be contacted about First Year Orientation for your transition experience into the Northeastern community.  

During the Transfer Student Transition Sessions you will learn:

  • How your transfer credits apply toward degree completion
  • How to register for classes
  • What may be needed to complete your financial aid
  • How to register your vehicle for parking
  • Where to find important resources
