Cost & Financial Aid

Financial Aid

Northeastern University provides graduate assistantships and other financial support to a limited number of qualified full-time graduate students who have demonstrated high scholastic achievement. Some assistantships are promised at the time of acceptance; others may be awarded at any time.

Other Opportunities

Research Assistantships (RA)
Research assistants are involved in research activities under the direct supervision of regular faculty members. Research assistants positions are funded through externally funded grants.
Teaching Assistantships (TA)
Assist faculty members in teaching a course by serving as grading assistants or holding office hours, for example, or in other capacities that involve direct contact with students in supporting either undergraduate or graduate teaching.
Company Sponsorship
In an effort to increase productivity and skill level of their employees, many corporations would provide some level of sponsorship for full or part time study through employee tuition reimbursements. According to a study by the Society for Human Resource Management, close to 60% of organizations offered graduate education financial assistance.
