Policies and accreditation
Northeastern University is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education. Federal regulations also require that Northeastern University disclose information to its students enrolled in any programs that the University offers that may lead to professional licensure. This disclosure is strictly limited to the University’s determination of whether each of these programs, if successfully completed, would be sufficient to meet the educational licensure or certification requirements in a State or U.S. Territory to be eligible to pursue licensure. Northeastern is required to provide students with these written disclosures, regardless of if a student is interested in pursuing professional licensure. These disclosures can be found under “Professional Licensure Disclosures” on University Decision Support.
