N.U.in and Northeastern’s Curriculum

Courses taken with the N.U.in Program align with the first-semester freshman curriculum taught at Northeastern and integrate cultural learning opportunities. In addition to fulfilling major requirements, N.U.in courses also count toward NUpath, our institution-wide general education requirements for students in all majors. 

The 2020 N.U.in Program Course Description Guide provides a detailed list of all the courses offered as a part of the N.U.in Program across each of our locations. Course maps (available in late spring) outlining the academic program of study per college and major for each location can be found on location academic pages. See the links at the bottom of this page.

Preparing for Academics While Abroad

Course Registration

Students will register for courses in late spring online through their Application Status Check. Students will have the opportunity to meet with an academic advisor to review their course registration at N.U.in Orientation. Students with a passing score on an Advanced Placement (AP) exam, International Baccalaureate (IB) credit or other college-level transferrable courses must report this during the N.U.in registration process. You will receive your class schedule when you arrive on-site.

Northeastern Transfer Credit

Grade Requirement
Some partner institutions may have a grading system that does not reflect U.S. institution’s grading scale (A, B, C). Please see the grade conversion chart on site specific academic pages at the bottom of the page, if applicable. To receive transfer credit for a course, students must attain a grade of C or better, using the U.S. grading system.

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

If you decide to apply for further educational opportunities or scholarships, official transcripts from all institutions attended are typically requested. Please see this page for more information on how to request additional transcripts from the school of record.
