Step 1 for Transfers- Meet with your Advisor
Academic Advising Center
Transfer students are able to enroll for NEIU classes during advanced registration. This means, dependent on your transfer credits, you can register while current NEIU students are also registering. You must be an admitted student to register for classes. We strongly encourage all transfer students to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor prior to registering for classes. Academic advisors can help you review which classes transferred from your previous college(s) and help you understand the courses that you must complete in order to graduate with a degree from Northeastern. Students who have not yet decided on a major or who have not yet completed 60 credits should meet with an advisor from the Academic Advising Center. You may schedule an appointment by calling (773) 442-5470. Please visit the Academic Advising Center website to learn more about transfer advisors contact information across various academic programs.
Step 2 for Transfers- Apply for Financial Aid and Scholarships
Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships
We strongly encourage students interested in attending NEIU to apply for Financial Aid as soon as possible. More specifically, we encourage a FAFSA application priority deadline of March 1st. The sooner you can apply for aid, the better we can serve you in determining your eligibility and your financial package. If you are interested in apply for scholarships, please note that there is a separate application for NEIU Scholarships. The deadline for scholarships is March 15, 2010. Learn more about financial aid and scholarships by visiting Financing NEIU.

Student orientation programs will help you become acquainted with NEIU and make your life easier as a transfer student. Transfers are not required to attend an orientation session however attending an orientation session will greatly assist you in learning more about the various services available at NEIU such as financial aid, health services, student insurance, parking, registration questions and much more. These sessions are designed to provide you with important information to ease your transition and to help you meet people across campus who can serve as a resource for you. Newly admitted transfers can register for classes prior to attending an orientation session (please see Step 1 for Transfers above). You can register for Transfer Orientation by contacting the Dean of Students Office at (773) 442-4610. You may learn more about Orientation by visiting the Orientation website.
