College is a time when students learn greater responsibility, and we encourage parents and family members to take an informed, supportive role in their student’s educational success. To that end, we have several ways you can stay in touch with campus and contact us with any questions or issues your student may be having.

Parent/Family Handbook

The Parent/Family Handbook is an essential resource for all Northeastern parents and families. To learn about university guidelines, procedures, on-campus offices, and more, please review the 2017-2018 Parent/Family Handbook.

Parent/Family Portal

Parents and guardians of current Northeastern students may create an online Parent/Family Portal account where they may be granted access to certain content and services related to their student’s experience at the university. For example, parents and guardians can review bills and transcripts online and access the latest campus news and information. Learn more.

Parent/Family Message Board

Stay in touch with other parents and families, ask questions, and get advice through our interactive Parent/Family Message Board.

Parent/Family Matters Newsletter

The Parent/Family Matters newsletter is sent to all Northeastern University parents/families who have a Parent/Family Portal account. Each issue includes upcoming events and deadlines, details about student services, student stories, and important university updates. Read our Winter 2018 issue.

To ensure you receive future issues, please update your contact information in your Parent/Family Portal.
