Why Northeastern?


downloadNortheastern is committed to serving those who have served our country. We want to help you transition into your next career, by offering:

Industry-Aligned Programs

Our 100+ graduate degrees and accelerated bachelor’s completion programs are aligned with the growing needs of today’s global economy and centered on experiential learning. Gain high-demand industry skills by integrating your academic coursework with hands-on, real-world experience.

Financial and Personal Support

Receive funding that bridges the gaps in your military benefits. We have invested $2 million in our Yellow Ribbon Program and offer expanded scholarships for veterans and servicemembers. A dedicated team is focused on helping you make the most of your GI Bill benefits and seamlessly transition to student life.

Dedicated Career Services

Gain access to our career counseling and job search services, consistently ranked in the top two nationwide by the Princeton Review. Our Center for the Advancement of Veterans and Servicemembers works directly with military members to help them find co-ops and job opportunities that fit their skill set and professional goals. More than 50 percent of our graduates receive a job offer from a previous co-op employer.

Tailored Educational Experiences

Enroll in courses flexible to your schedule, whether online, on-campus, or a hybrid of the two. Connect with students and faculty at our flagship Boston campus or at one of our regional campuses in Charlotte, Seattle, Silicon Valley, and Toronto.

An Active Community

Servicemembers and veterans have an active voice on campus—both in the classroom and in the organizations they choose to join. Northeastern’s Student Veterans Organization was named Chapter of the Year in 2013, and develops camaraderie through involvement in community engagement, volunteering, and social events.

Our services, degree programs, and dedication to making education more affordable have earned Northeastern recognition as 38th on U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 Best Colleges for Veterans ranking.
