Information for Parents and Families

Learn more about the resources available to you!

We understand that choosing which college to send your son or daughter to is a major decision. We also believe that a well-informed and supportive family plays a major role in a student’s educational success. As such, we encourage parents and family members to take an active role in their student’s college decision-making process.

Learn more about the role you will play by checking out Northeastern’s Parent and Family Programs, our main resource for parents and family members. You’ll find information on campus resources, important dates, news, and more.

Support and Services

Parents of newly admitted students are encouraged to create a Parent Portal Account, where they can receive important news and campus updates as well as pay enrollment deposits and check account balances.

Once your student has enrolled, please view the Parent Message Board – a platform where you can post questions for other parents, and see what issues and topics are currently trending.

Questions or concerns can be directed to the Office of Parent Programs and Services at or 800.696.6516.
