Courses will be taught by Northeastern faculty and will be geared towards the Boston cohort. The majority of classes will be conducted on the Boston campus, with the possibility of a small number of course sections being held at nearby locations and/or online. 

All participants earn a full semester of transferable credits, provided that you achieve a grade of “C” or better in the U.S. grading system. In accordance with Northeastern’s transfer credit policies, your final grades will not appear on the your Northeastern transcript, but rather as transfer credit. Letter grades will, however, appear on the official transcripts from the school of record Northeastern’s College of Professional Studies for Boston, and may be required if you apply to graduate programs and other post-undergraduate opportunities.

Class Schedule
You will receive your class schedule when you arrive in Boston.


It is recommended that participants wait until arriving on site to purchase the necessary books. It is generally a good idea to review the syllabus for a class prior to buying any materials. Students can generally purchase books at the Northeastern bookstore or other local bookstores.

Grading Scale Boston will use the American grading system, meaning that grades will look similar to those earned elsewhere in the United States. The rubric is explained clearly at the beginning of the semester in each syllabus to ensure consistency and offer a guide from the beginning of the class.
