Servicemembers & Veterans

vets homepage

Northeastern is dedicated to serving those who have served our country. Our century-long commitment to supporting veterans and servicemembers is reflected in our services, degree programs, and investment in making education more affordable for military students who want to continue or complete their studies.

As a veteran or servicemember at Northeastern, you gain access to:

Industry-Aligned Programs

We offer more than 150 graduate degrees, certificates, and accelerated bachelor’s completion programs aligned with the unique needs of today’s global economy. You can tailor your educational experience to your schedule by enrolling in programs that are either online, on ground, or a hybrid of the two. Our offerings are centered on experiential learning, allowing you to elevate your military experience by integrating what you learned in the classroom with hands-on, real-world work.

Drawing on Northeastern’s well-established commitment to servicemembers and veterans, Northeastern University-Charlotte is pleased to partner with Fort Bragg to offer soldiers transitioning from service at Fort Bragg access to industry-aligned programs.

Financial and Personal Support

Receive funding that bridges the gaps in your military benefits. We have invested $2 million in our Yellow Ribbon Program and offer expanded scholarships for veterans and servicemembers. A dedicated team is focused on helping you make the most of your VA benefits and attend school at little or no cost to you.

Dedicated Career Services

Northeastern’s career services have consistently ranked in the top two nationwide by the Princeton Review. The Center for the Advancement of Veterans and Servicemembers is focused on helping you find co-ops and job opportunities that fit your specialized skill set and professional goals. More than 50 percent of our graduates receive a job offer from a previous co-op employer.

An Active Community

Servicemembers and veterans have an active voice on campus—both in the classroom and in the organizations they choose to join. Northeastern’s Student Veterans Organization was named Chapter of the Year in 2013, and develops camaraderie through involvement in community engagement, volunteering, and social events.

Positive Career Outcomes

The graduation rate for our military students is 83 percent—much higher than the 51 percent national average reported by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The experience pays off: 90 percent of Northeastern graduates are employed full time or enrolled in graduate school within nine months of graduation.
