3. Upper-Class Eligibility
The Bouvé College of Health Sciences curricula all have a strong science component and most require a strict sequence of courses. To find out which of your completed and in-progress courses fulfill a requirement in your new major of interest, run a Degree Audit. You will find the Degree Audit program on your myNEU in the Self Service tab (“My Degree Audit”). Choose “Explore Options” and your major of interest.
Look at the provided program plans for your major of interest to see what Year of Study you will fit into. Summer coursework may be an option to make up one or two classes that you are missing. Professional classes (starting in HSCI, HLTH, NRSG, PHMD, PHSC, PHTH, PT, and SLPA) must be taken at Northeastern. A Bouvé Office of Student Service advisor will help you to determine exactly where you will fall in the curriculum.
Bouvé majors require a GPA of 3.0 for transfer. Our most successful upper-class applicants have completed multiple science courses with grades of B or better.
All internal transfer applicants should familiarize themselves with the academic progression policies of their intended major before applying. Some majors require a 3.0 GPA to enter the professional phase of the program. Policies can be found here.
It is a good idea to talk to your financial aid advisor in 354 Richards Hall to find out the financial implications of your proposed change.
