What are my next steps?

Submitting Your Transcript

If you have not already sent your official transcript to Northeastern, please request that the National Student Clearinghouse (www.studentclearinghouse.org), Parchment (www.parchment.com), or eSCRIP-SAFE (www.escrip-safe.com) email it to gradbusiness@northeastern.edu.

Please note that transcripts send by any other sender will be considered unofficial, but may be submitted in advance of the official documents. We recognize that there may be delays in receiving official documentation right now from your previous academic institutions.

If you earned a degree outside of the United States, a course-by-course international credential evaluation is required. Many of our students go through World Education Services (www.wes.org) to have this evaluation performed. There are additional organizations that perform this service and we will accept an evaluation by any organization recognized by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).

As always, if you have questions about this, please email us at gradbusiness@northeastern.edu.

Complete the University Health Report

Massachusetts law requires all University students to provide documentation of vaccination. Please complete the University Health Report, sign the consent (page 1), and have your primary care clinician complete the state-mandated immunization form (page 2). Also see our page on the University Health Report during COVID-19 for updated information.

The completed University Health Report must be returned to University Health and Counseling Services by email: UHCS@northeastern.edu, or fax: 617-373-2601. Please do not send the health report to your advisor, because your health information is private.

Health Insurance Requirement

All full-time students are required by Massachusetts state law to have health insurance while they are enrolled at Northeastern. 

You’ll automatically be enrolled into the Northeastern University Student Health Plan (NUSHP). This health insurance is comprehensive and provides excellent coverage. It’ll be your responsibility to waive the NUSHP health insurance if you have comparable, US based coverage. Instructions for how to waive the coverage can be found in the NUSHP FAQ page.
