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 sent 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.

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.

All students arriving to Northeastern University's campuses will be expected to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the first day of classes.
