Session N and O: Thursday, September 3

This is the final session for full-time, undergraduate transfer students.

Now that you have secured your place at Northeastern, the next step is to attend Orientation. Orientation is a mandatory one-day program for all incoming transfer students. You’ll meet your fellow classmates, get to know campus, and learn the ins-and-outs of life at Northeastern. We have a dynamic staff of current students who serve as Orientation Leaders throughout your program. These students will help you make a smooth transition and get acquainted with all Northeastern has to offer. You’ll also meet your academic adviser, talk about your academic goals, and register for classes.

Check-In Time and Location

Student and guest check-in will be from 7:15-8:00 a.m. in the Curry Student Center.  Check-out begins at 3:00 p.m., following the completion of your academic advising.

International Students

In addition to participating in the New Student Orientation that precedes the start of the semester (directly following move-in), international students are also invited to take part in a comprehensive introductory program hosted by the International Student and Scholar Institute (ISSI). Activities include cultural enrichment programming, information sessions, immigration advising, regional excursions, intercultural/diversity education seminars, and workshops on topics ranging from academic success to student life.
