First-Year Experience

Building a strong foundation in your first year of college is key to your success.  Northeastern encourages freshman to take one First-Year Experience course that reinforces the skills, tools and knowledge you need to make a successful transition into college.  Your options include courses in the arts, sciences, business and more!

Summer Bridge

Don't wait until the fall to get started!  Summer Bridge consists of four separate programs that offer students the opportunity to take summer classes in areas such as English, Math, Computer Science and Urban Health and Wellness.  Participating in one of these optional programs will help you become more familiar with Northeastern and build your confidence before you begin the fall semester.  Even better - all of the programs are free.

The Google [Summer Bridge] program was an invaluable experience because not only did it expand my technical skills, but it also allowed me to develop relationships with Northeastern instructors and classmates.”
