Participation in New Student Orientation is mandatory for all incoming first year and transfer students.
At Orientation, students will have the opportunity to learn their way around campus and Boston, prepare for the start of the academic year by exploring their college and major, meeting with an academic advisor, learning more about co-op, and experiencing what makes Northeastern unique. They also register for classes, get their student ID card, and have some fun!
Parents and family members of new students are invited (and encouraged) to participate in the Parent and Family Orientation program, which runs simultaneously with the student program. The Parent and Family Program is designed to introduce you to the broad academic and social aspects of the University community. Parents and family members will also interact and network with each other.
All new students will be charged a non-refundable fee* that will be posted to their first semester bill. This fee includes student orientation costs, (including the opportunity to have two complimentary guests participate in the Parent Program which runs simultaneously to the Student Program), welcome week activities, and parents’ automatic membership in the Parents Association, receiving regular communication on the University throughout the year.
Enrolled students will have several dates to choose from during the summer months. Orientation dates are college/program specific. Please note that students outside of the US most typically attend the orientation session immediately preceding the start of the academic semester. Dates will be made avaliable and be posted in your Admitted Student Portal in April.
