The college and university offer multiple opportunities for students to demonstrate their academic excellence.
University Honors Program
The Honors Program invites exceptionally motivated students to enhance their educational experience. Students joining this community seek an undergraduate experience charted by meeting academic challenges. Those invited into the University Honors Program are among our most highly accomplished and motivated prospective students.
- Offers demanding and challenging academic opportunities
- Connects students to an active community of thinkers committed to making a difference
- Promotes living and learning in the Honors Program thematic communities
- Integrates Honors into the broader undergraduate experience.
The Honors Program frames opportunities that are intellectually rigorous, based on both foundational and advanced work in interdisciplinary thematic areas. The Honors Program promotes global awareness and civic engagement across all of its offerings, and empowers students through resources within the Program as well as the larger Northeastern community.
COE Honors Program
In the College of Engineering, students have the opportunity to conduct original research in collaboration with a faculty mentor.
Students who successfully complete the requirements for College Honors in their major will be graduated with the designation: "Honors in [Specific Engineering Major]" on their transcripts.
Students in the University Honors Program who meet their department's qualifications are strongly encouraged to apply. However, prior membership in the University Honors Program is not an eligibility requirement for participation in the College of Engineering Honors program.
All students who meet their major's eligibility requirements are strongly encouraged to apply and participate in College Honors.

University Scholars Program
Each year, we invite a cohort of the most outstanding high school students from across the United States and the world to come to Northeastern, providing them with a full-tuition scholarship. The University Scholars Program, however, offers students much more than financial underwriting. We recognize that these high-achieving students want to explore, to dream, and to discover and our program is designed to help each Scholar craft a unique path through Northeastern. With broad access to the resources of the entire University, we provide each Northeastern University Scholar with the opportunity to design a tailored program that potentially spans colleges, departments, and global partner institutions to address each scholar’s unique academic goals and career aspirations, and advance their entrepreneurial ideas. While each Scholar's path through the university is unique, we are also dedicated to creating an engaged, supportive interdisciplinary learning community wherein students can create lifelong intellectual engagements and friendships.
