Northeastern helps America’s military veterans on and off campus by providing orientation sessions, academic support, financial aid and registration assistance, housing near other veterans, health and counseling services, a student veterans’ group, and sports and fitness opportunities. Among our notable partnerships: We participate in a federal program that enables post-9/11 veterans to earn Northeastern degrees at little or no cost; and we collaborate with the U.S. Army Medical Department on their graduate program in anesthesia nursing.
Admissions: Veterans interested in applying to Northeastern University can contact the Office of Admissions and ask to speak with Rasheedah Clayton, who can assist with information regarding academic programs, transfer credits, and anything else a prospective student veteran may need to know. http://www.northeastern.edu/admissions
VA Certifying Official/Registrar’s Office: Assists veterans, guardsmen, and reservists in taking full advantage of the educational benefits available to them through the Post-9/11 GI Bill, the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB), and other programs by ensuring that veterans successfully align their course enrollments with their specific government benefit programs. http://www.northeastern.edu/registrar/va.html
Student Financial Services: Assists students with financial planning. Post-9/11 veterans can earn degrees at little or no cost through the Yellow Ribbon program, a federal program supplemented with matching funds from Northeastern. http://www.northeastern.edu/financialaid; http://www.northeastern.edu/veterans/yellowribbon
Support for Academics and Students with Disabilities: Student veterans can explore Living and Learning Communities and learn about disability accommodations and support services at the Disabilities Resource Center and the Learning Disabilities Program. The University also offers general academic support as well as tutoring programs through each of the colleges. http://www.drc.neu.edu; http://www.northeastern.edu/reslife/livinglearning/index.html
U.S. Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing (USAGPAN): Virtually all of the Army’s Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists go through this nationally top-ranked master’s degree program. This collaboration between Northeastern University’s School of Nursing and the U.S. Army Medical Department is designed to train nurse anesthetists to excel in the highly demanding environments produced by war and natural disaster. http://www.northeastern.edu/bouve/nursing/add/armyprograman.html
Northeastern's striking Veterans Memorial bears the names of hundreds of students and alumni who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that the United States could continue to enjoy freedom and prosperity. http://www.northeastern.edu/veterans/veteransmemorial/
Northeastern provides a wide range of intramural team sports, excellent on-campus fitness centers, and fun opportunities to join fellow Huskies fans in the ”Doghouse“ at sporting events both on and off campus.
University Health and Counseling offers a variety of services, from routine health care to support groups for issues like the transition to college, grief counseling, or PTSD.http://www.northeastern.edu/uhcs
Student veterans can live on campus in placements near other veterans or work with the off-campus housing office to find the right home in the neighborhoods surrounding campus.
Veterans enrolled at Northeastern may choose from among scores of organizations and groups that match their personal interests. Northeastern has also created a veterans’ group to promote awareness, sponsor events, and gain a voice at the University.http://www.northeastern.edu/studentactivities
