Graduate Application Process

All students who applied will be notified of their application status during the the middle of June.
Students who receive an offer for housing will be required to submit non-refundable Housing Deposits for the terms they requested.
Students who receive a wait list number will also be notified by mail at this time about their position on this list and will be provided with information about the process and next steps, as well as off-campus housing alternatives.
Student Rights and Responsibilities
All students living in space leased by Northeastern are bound to uphold the “Code of Conduct” as detailed in the University’s Student Handbook, as well as, the terms and conditions detailed in both the Guide to Residence Hall Living and the Residence Hall and Dining License Agreement.
