N.U.in

Admitting students into The N.U.in Program provides enrollment opportunities to talented candidates whom we are unable to accommodate in the fall because of the competitiveness of our applicant pool. Given the large numbers of well-prepared students who apply to Northeastern, N.U.in is for those who wish to be part of our dynamic community and to participate in our co-op and experiential learning programs.

Army ROTC

Enrolling in Army ROTC is not, strictly speaking, joining the Army. You will not be sent to boot camp. However, the primary purpose of the Army ROTC program is to produce its Officers, so you must agree to serve as Officers in the Army after graduation in order to go through the entire program, or if you have received an ROTC scholarship.

Fellowships and Scholarships

The Office of Fellowships aims to help students earn fellowships and equally important, understand and clearly narrate their ambitions, talents, and projects. We believe that the skills and the knowledge garnered during the application process are invaluable resources for all who undertake it, whether they earn an award or choose to pursue graduate research, the professions, or other opportunities after their time at Northeastern.
