Greetings future Golden Eagle,
Welcome to Northeastern Illinois University, home to over 11,000 students and the most diverse school in the Midwest. I hope that all your questions are answered by viewing our webpage and that Northeastern becomes your top college choice for the upcoming year.
We are proud of our faculty, staff and students and we know that Northeastern is a fantastic, affordable and welcoming institution for thousands of prospective students. Our vibrant campus is nestled in Albany Park in Chicago’s north side and our 60+ acre commuter campus gives you an opportunity to experience college life without ever leaving the city.
Our students are busily active in volunteering during their free time, participating in social activism, developing into strong student leaders, tackling research opportunities, and even studying abroad. We maintain one of the most affordable tuition rates in the area and we provide access to students who wish to succeed.
We look forward to seeing you on campus during a visit day and we hope to serve you throughout your college search.
Claudia Mercado, M.S. Ed.
Director of Admissions
