N.U.in students will register for courses online through their myNEU portals after May 1, 2017, after communicating with their academic advisors about the best course options to meet each student’s academic needs. N.U.in students will not receive schedules (with days and times) until they arrive to their N.U.in location.
After the deadline, our partners consider classroom space, number of sections for course, scheduling, availability of faculty, and other factors. N.U.in students wishing to change a course after the deadline may do so only if it is deemed academically necessary by their Northeastern academic advisor; any other reason for a course change will not qualify.
To request a course change that is academically necessary, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with COURSE CHANGE REQUEST in the subject line of the email. Do not email for a course change if you are requesting it because of AP/IB and other college credit. N.U.in students who receive AP/IB and college credit will have their schedules adjusted by their academic advisors in mid-July during Pre-departure Orientation (PDO), and then confirmed before departure. If students have a choice among a number of courses, N.U.in will contact them regarding their preference after PDO.
It is very important that students ensure they have communicated course change needs to their academic advisors and/or The N.U.in Program prior to departure. Changes will not be made after arrival due to a student’s failure to communicate with Northeastern staff over the summer. For academic contact information by college, please see this list.
The Global Experience Course
The Global Experience course is a required one-credit class designed to help students prepare for, gain from, and reflect upon your term abroad through workshops, seminars, course readings, discussions, and local civic engagements. All N.U.in students across all of our locations will take this course. The final project is a reflection video in which you look back on your time abroad and on your Service-Learning.
