Learning Opportunities that Last a Lifetime
Sometimes a parent or sibling delays his or her own continued education to support a full-time undergraduate day student. At Northeastern, thanks to the Parent and Family Scholarship, family members can continue working to achieve their advanced educational goals—and receive a 25 percent tuition discount on more than 110 eligible graduate programs.
The Parent and Family Scholarship allows Northeastern to showcase its commitment to lifetime learning and career development as one of its core values. We are also committed to making education accessible, providing graduate students at different points in their careers with learning formats and locations that meet their needs.
A First-of-its-Kind Benefit
Parents and siblings of full-time undergraduate day students are eligible for the Parent and Family Scholarship. To receive the discount, prospective graduate students need to provide the Northeastern ID number of their son, daughter, or sibling—who must be currently enrolled at the university as a full-time undergraduate day student—at the time of their application. Even if the undergraduate day student is a senior, the tuition discount will be applied for as long as it takes to complete the desired graduate program.
This discount applies to tuition only. Once enrolled, students are responsible for financing the remaining cost of their degree. If a student is offered other grant aid from Northeastern, he or she will receive the scholarship of higher value. Northeastern reserves the right to review the family size and structure reported by the undergraduate day student in his or her financial aid applications to ensure consistency with the information provided by the Parent and Family Scholarship applicant.
Those completing pass-through degrees—such as Direct Entry Nursing, Freshman-Entry Doctor of Education, or Freshman-Entry Doctor of Physical Therapy—or a PlusOne accelerated master’s program do not qualify for the Parent and Family Scholarship.
The Parent and Family Scholarship discount is available to newly enrolled parents and siblings as of January 2016 and onward.
