Thinking of applying to one of our CSSH graduate programs? It pays to plan ahead and visit CSSH!
If you attend a CSSH Open House or Welcome Day, or meet with a Northeastern University staff or faculty member through a graduate program recruitment event, and then apply to a CSSH graduate program, we will waive your application fee. Under the “Affiliation to Northeastern University” section of the application, please enter the name of the staff or faculty member you met with. Important: When you submit your application, you MUST select “Pay by Check” and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we waive the fee. Please again note who you met with and where in your email request. It pays to plan ahead as we will not refund fees already paid.
