The General Studies Program: Transitioning, Learning & Connecting

We are a first year academic program designed to help Northeastern students…

  • Transition to the University and eventually into one of Northeastern’s seven undergraduate colleges
  • Learn about themselves as students and how to achieve academic success in their first year and beyond
  • Connect with their peers, staff, the NU community and their intended College

The GSP is a small program in NU’s very large community (more than 2,000 first-year students). GSP students spend their first year immersed in a combination of introductory courses for their intended major, first-year requirements, and general education courses.  The General Studies Program includes committed instructors, dedicated advisors, a nationally-certified peer tutoring program, and a purposefully small but highly-skilled and diverse student body. Welcome!
