Admissions Updates from Northeastern University (MA)

Greetings from Boston! Now that the November 1 application deadline for Early Decision I and Early Action has passed, I wanted to provide you with a brief update. We’ve seen growth in both applicant pools—with a 22% increase in Early Action and a 17% increase in Early Decision; needless to say, we are working tirelessly to complete files and evaluate applications. We anticipate these will be two very competitive rounds of admission selection and will keep you updated as we move through the cycle.

There are a few additional items I’d like to share with you as we move forward into this year’s applicant cycle:

  • For the second year, we asked students via the application for their preference about whether they would like to participate in The Program, our first-year global experience. We’re eager to have this context as we make decisions, although a student’s preference does not guarantee a decision that matches that preference.
  • Similar to the past few years, students in the ED I pool may receive offers of admission for Fall 2018, as well as for The Program, as we remain committed to providing these students with a final decision at this time. For students admitted to The Program, their decision will be non-binding with a May 1 deposit deadline.
  • We will also offer a small number of EA admission offers to The Program, along with those receiving an offer of admission for Fall 2018.

Students who applied Early Decision I will be notified electronically of their admissions decision by December 15, and those applying Early Action will be notified by February 1.

My team is eager to assist you throughout this process. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 617.373.2200, touch base with your Admissions representative, or Tweet your question to @NUAdmissions with #askNUAdmission.

Warm regards,
