Funding Process

GIEL tuition is typically supported by each Candidate’s sponsoring organization.  Specific payment methods vary, including:

“I’ve learned skills that have helped me to be successful in this role and given me confidence that I can lead an engineering team to a successful solution in the face of a challenging problem.”

Paul Head, Gordon Fellow

  • Direct Payment to University
  • Tuition Reimbursement to Candidate
  • Tuition Coverage through CenSSIS Membership (see for details)

The program enrolls high-potential students by working with organizations to develop a sponsoring arrangement that best suits their needs.

Candidates who plan to complete the Challenge Project as part of an internship or standalone project typically finance their own graduate program.  In some cases, GIEL will offer partial financial assistance to individuals who do not qualify for tuition reimbursement through a fulltime employer.

Tuition and Fees

Rates for tuition and fees are set yearly by the Northeastern University Board of Trustees.

The 2018/2019 tuition rate for the Northeastern University Graduate School of Engineering is $1569 per semester hour.  To estimate how many semester hours will be required for your Candidate’s selected degree program, please refer to the certificate and degree options page.
