Services for International Students and Scholars


We are glad to have you at Northeastern University and look forward to giving you the information and support you need as you continue your studies. Read the sections on travelimmigration status, and hosting family visitors. For all the details on student employment, take a look at the Employment section of this website. The Office of Global Services (OGS) isn’t just a source of regulatory information. We plan programs and provide international student support. Check NU Life and Events for more information.

*College of Professional Studies (CPS) has different requirements relating to Part of Term. Always remember, the OGS can provide you with one-on-one guidance and assistance on the vast array of federal requirements and procedures related to immigration and maintaining your legal status throughout your studies. If you need assistance or advice, please make an appointment with an OGS advisor. For urgent issues, staff is available daily on a walk-in basis as well.
