The University Honors Program is dedicated to empowering its students’ ability to affect meaningful impact in their campus, local, and global communities during their undergraduate education. Our community of intellectually engaged students, faculty, and professional staff are committed to engagement with scholarship that enables students to confront critical societal issues and leverage the knowledge and expertise from these encounters to make a difference at Northeastern University and beyond. Students benefit from unique and enriched educational options that include stimulating courses, opportunities for research and creative endeavors, global experiences, service-learning, mentoring, and the development of competencies that will position them for lifelong learning and personal and professional success. Throughout their undergraduate experience, Honors students are guided and supported as they chart their unique educational plans through personalized developmental advising, engagement in diverse competency-based learning experiences, and participation in a set of networked communities that include Honors Living Learning Communities.

All applicants seeking freshman entry at Northeastern (for fall semester entry) are considered for admission into the University Honors Program and are notified of their selection in their letter of admission. There is no separate application. Students matriculating in the fall 2023 semester and beyond will have opportunities for ongoing participation in the program at the conclusion of their first year.

Continuing students in their first, second, or third semesters who wish to be considered for entry may consult the University Honors Program’s website for application instructions.
