Northeastern is closely monitoring the current 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and is in constant communication with government and public health agencies on a global scale to learn from and carefully follow their recommendations.
Safeguarding the health and safety of the global community of students, faculty, and staff is Northeastern’s number one priority. The university is currently engaged in extensive contingency planning to prevent any disruption to student learning and to ensure business and educational continuity across all our global campuses and learners.
We understand our incoming international students are anxiously planning to arrive for our Summer Quarter 2020 to start their Northeastern experience at the College of Professional Studies. We foster an environment that is welcoming, inclusive, and supportive to all members of our global community, and we empathize with the disruption the current epidemic has caused to your learning plans and travel restrictions that will delay arrival to our campuses.
During this unexpected situation, we are offering our Northeastern learning experience in a fully online modality for all our degree programs. You may choose to start your degree program online even if you are unable to arrive to campus in time for the official start of the Summer Quarter (Term). After travel restrictions have been lifted, you will be able to transfer to one of our campus locations in the next available academic quarter, with minimal disruption to your study plan.
You may also choose to delay your enrollment and start date at Northeastern to a later term. To request deferred admission, please contact us by phone or email.
We believe these solutions will allow our incoming students to move forward with their study plans at Northeastern University. We will continue to monitor this developing situation and keep our students updated. For the latest university information regarding the coronavirus, please visit news.northeastern.edu/coronavirus.
