Thank you for your interest in Northeastern’s Honors Program!

The University Honors Program invites exceptionally talented students to enhance their educational experience. Students joining this community seek an undergraduate experience charted by meeting academic challenges. Those invited into the Honors Program are among our most highly accomplished and motivated prospective students.

Each fall, the Honors Program at Northeastern University invites a select group of domestic and international applicants to join. There is no separate application process for the Honors Program. Decisions are rendered based on the undergraduate admissions application submitted to the university. Students are considered for entry as part of both the Early Action and Regular Decision process.

The invitation to join the University Honors Program will be included in the official admission letter. This document will be accessible through the online application status check once admissions decisions have been released. All students invited to join the program will also receive a University Honors Program certificate as a separate attachment made available through the online application status check.

If you have questions about the Honors Program, please contact us at the Honors Program Office at 617.373.2333. We invite you to direct any questions regarding the admissions process to
