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, as well as integrating 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 2021 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  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. 

We expect courses to be delivered on-ground across all N.U.in sites with continued observance of some COVID-19 restrictions and healthy practices. We will continue to release updates and information in the coming weeks and months. Please know that the health and safety of our community is our top priority, alongside ensuring educational continuity for our students.

Preparing for Academics While Participating in the N.U.in Program

Course Registration

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

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 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.
