Welcome Families

Student Orientation and Family Programs connects families with the university and its resources, helping you navigate and build networks within Northeastern’s global community. We support families throughout their Northeastern experience — including academic, administrative, and personal matters. Each year, we host several programs for family engagement, including Family & Friends Weekend and our Tuesday Talks virtual family panel series.

We partner with families and support your student by:​

  • Encouraging communication between families and the university​
  • Accessing resources to guide students in academic and personal decision-making​
  • Providing a compassionate, caring, and coordinated crisis response


The Parent Channel

Stay in the know! The Parent Channel is your primary source of information. For information about university decisions and resources in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our campuses, visit ​news.northeastern.edu/coronavirus


Family Portal

The myNortheastern Family Portal serves as the primary way that Northeastern delivers the tuition bill – families can review and pay online. Other services include access to student account information, such as your student’s academic transcript and Husky Card monetary balance.

Students should fill out this form to provide access to family members to view student records. Once a student has completed the form, an email will be sent to the family member with a claim link to access student account information.


Tuesday Talks Family Panels

Join us for our informative virtual panel series geared towards keeping families abreast of current student and university happenings. To request a future topic, email parents@northeastern.edu.
