Required Health Report Forms
Massachusetts state law requires all students to submit a health report form to the University before beginning their studies. This report must include documentation of a physical exam within the last 12 months, documentation of a tuberculosis test within the last 10 years, and proof of immunity to tetanus, diphtheria, measles, mumps, and rubella.
Please download the form from the University Health and Counseling Services’ website. The form must be returned no later than 30 days prior to the start of classes.
Health Services will block all students who do not submit the form from registering for their second semester at Northeastern. Any questions concerning the form should be directed to University Health and Counseling Services at:
Medical Leave of Absence (MLOA)
The Insurance and Referral Coordinators will be of assistance in the MLOA process and in finding community referrals upon return from MLOA if needed. They can be reached at 617.373.2772, option #5.
All admitted international students must complete and return the appropriate ISSI Form 601 graduate Declaration and Certification of Finances (DCF) form verifying that they have adequate financial resources for living and studying expenses. The International Student & Scholar Institute (ISSI) will be unable to send the necessary Certificate of Eligibility (DS 2019 or I-20) document until the Graduate Office receives and approves the DCF. Students receiving an assistantship are still required to complete the DCF for biographical and contact information.
Students who do not need a Certificate of Eligibility must complete the ISSI Form 643 Data Form, as requested by the International Student & Scholar Institute, and return this form to the Graduate Office with a signed admission offer contract.
These forms are available here.
The Registrar’s Office lists tuition cost, fees, information about refund policies, withdrawals, and deadlines to which students must adhere. Payment plan options may also be found there.
The Student Financial Services Office provides information on billing policies and procedures, as well as contact information for financial aid counselors who can assist students with questions and concerns. Students can visit the Counselor Lookup web page to find the financial aid counselor assigned to them.
