EARLY ACTION: Nov. 1

EARLY DECISION II: Jan. 1

REGULAR DECISION: Jan. 1

If Northeastern is your number one college choice, and you are committed to attending if admitted, Early Decision is the admissions program that is right for you. Early Decision is ideal for students who are confident that we are the right fit—academically, socially, and financially. Please note, Early Decision is binding—if you are admitted, you are committed to attending and required to withdraw all applications from other institutions.

Standardized Testing Policy

For the 2022-23 application cycle, Northeastern is test-optional, meaning students have a choice of applying without standardized testing or with SAT or ACT scores. Evaluating each application holistically is something Northeastern takes pride in—we focus on the rigor of coursework and academic performance, but no less critical are your self-expression and passions. We consider each applicants' entire profile, including leadership positions, extracurricular involvement, entrepreneurial pursuits, and personal qualities.
