Transfer Student Resources
Northeastern welcomes transfer students. We acknowledge this as a sensible path of educational achievement for many students. Nearly 50 percent of students at Northeastern are transfer students.
If you have questions about transferring to Northeastern several online resources are available.
Transfer Course Equivalency Guides
The Transfer Course Equivalency Guides provide a course by course view of how courses from nearby colleges will be counted as credit at Northeastern.
The Transfer Guides summarize the transfer credit policy for undergraduates and second B.A. students, including hour limits for transfer credit from different kinds of institutions and general policy for counting this credit at Northeastern. They have been built for many of the majors and are a useful planning tool especially for those attending nearby community colleges.
