Bouvé Student Services relies heavily on students’ myNEU accounts to make important announcements and to share pertinent, major-specific information.

The Peer Tutoring Program (PTP) offers a wide range of tutoring services to meet the academic needs of Northeastern’s undergraduate students in many of the introductory level courses, as well as some of the upper-level courses in the NU Core. The Peer Tutoring Program hires highly qualified undergraduate students who are recommended by faculty whose course(s) they tutor. In addition, all peer tutors are trained in accordance to College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) tutor certification guidelines. For a complete list of subjects in which tutoring is offered, as well as for both content specific and non-content specific tutoring resources, check the Peer Tutoring Program website at www.neu.edu/peertutoring
The mission of the Peer Tutoring Program is to empower students by engaging them with the curriculum in order to help them reach their full academic potential. Its goal is to create synergy among students, faculty, and tutors in a collaborative academic environment where the student’s academic growth and development is a priority. The Program is committed to working closely with the faculty in the academic departments in order to firmly ground tutoring as an extension of the classroom experience.
Students can book one-on-one tutoring appointments via myNEU under TUTORING. Peer tutoring appointments may last up to one hour. Peer Tutoring services are FREE and open to all Northeastern undergraduate students currently enrolled in course (s) in which peer tutoring is offered.
One-on-one tutoring by appointment begins the second week of classes and ends the last day of classes.
My Degree Audit
Northeastern allows you to monitor your progress towards a degree, including transfer credit, through the Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS). You can access your degree audit through myNEU by going to the Self-Service tab and clicking on “My Degree Audit.” Below are instructions for checking your degree audit for transfer credit status.
Step 1 – Check your degree audit for transfer credit status
Run a new degree audit, which is accessible through your myNEU portal. When your audit is ready to view, scroll down to the section marked “Additional Course Information.” You will see several categories of transfer credit, depending on your transfer credit situation.
Step 2 – Explanation of transfer credit categories
Non-Transferable Coursework: The course was evaluated by a faculty member of the appropriate department, and the course was deemed to be ineligible to transfer to Northeastern for degree completion. There is nothing else to do for these courses. The faculty determination is final.
Courses with Non-Transferable Grades: These are courses in which you received a grade of C- or lower or received another non-transferable grade such as Pass/Fail, Withdrawn or Incomplete. There is nothing more to do for courses in this category.
Unknown or Ungraded Transfer Courses: Courses fall in this category because Admissions has not yet received an official transcript with final grades from your prior institution. Most often, these courses are listed with an “IP” instead of a “T” for the grade for the course if we are missing the official transcript with all final grades. You may also see courses labeled with “NRT,” which needs to be brought to the attention of the Admissions Office. Contact Admissions at 617.373.2200 or at [email protected] to get more instructions on how to fix these courses.
Transfer Course Yet to be Evaluated: Courses in this category have yet to be reviewed by a faculty member. To start this process you must send description(s) for course(s) listed with “No Rules”) Email course description(s) to [email protected]. Be sure to include name of the institution, course title and catalog (?) number.
***If you have AP credit or college credit that is not listed at all, contact [email protected] to find out if the admissions office has received final copies of your official transcripts or if there is something else holding up the transfer credit process. Otherwise, Northeastern is not aware of this credit and you should immediately request an official transcript from your college or request that the College Board send a grade report of your AP scores to Northeastern.
Step 3 – Review for all grades and transfer credit completeness
Pay very close attention to the Total “Transfer Credit” category under the “Additional Course Information” section. Don’t forget that AP and IB credit is considered transfer credit, so keep an eye out for it! If any transfer course work is missing, contact [email protected] to find out if the admissions office has received final copies of your official transcripts or if there is something else holding up the transfer credit process.
