It is mandatory for all students who begin in the fall to attend an orientation session before they start at Northeastern. While you’re here, you’ll meet other new students and learn your way around campus. You’ll explore your academic college and major and learn more about co-op and experiential learning. And, most importantly, you’ll have fun getting to know Northeastern and Boston, the ultimate college town. A non refundable $350 new student fee will be posted to your fall semester bill. This fee includes student orientation costs (including the opportunity to have two complimentary guests participate in the Parent Program which runs simultaneously to the Student Program), the automatic membership of your parents into the Parents Association; receiving regular communication on the University throughout the year, and Welcome Week activities. Additional guests and all guests requiring on campus housing will ensue additional costs.
