The Northeastern Promise

In these uncertain economic times, we know families are concerned about financing a private college education. That is why at Northeastern, we have created the Northeastern Promise. Under the Northeastern Promise, we guarantee the following for the new Undergraduate Day students:

  1. Northeastern University grant and scholarship funds are guaranteed not to be reduced (for up to eight in-class semesters).*
  2. Northeastern University need-based grant funds will be increased annually at the same percentage rate as the increase in tuition.
  3. If your family experiences a significant negative financial change we will reevaluate your financial aid package.


*Students must file the FAFSA each year and meet satisfactory academic progress standards to be eligible for Northeastern University Grant funds. Students must maintain the minimum cumulative GPA required to be eligible for any scholarship funds.
