Thank you for your interest in the NU Experience Virtual Fall Fly-In! 

Though we are unable to invite you to physically join us in Boston due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we are so excited to have the chance to meet you virtually. The NU Experience Virtual Fall Fly-In Program will include candid conversations with current Northeastern students and other program participants, chances to learn more about Northeastern's identity-focused cultural centers and student organizations, information and advice from the Undergraduate Admissions and Student Financial Services teams, myriad opportunities to learn more about the college application process in general (and Northeastern in particular), and more! 
The NU Experience Virtual Fall Fly-In is open to all current high school seniors, but as part of Northeastern's commitment to enrolling and supporting a diverse student body, we will prioritize applications from students who have been historically underrepresented within Northeastern's student population (including but not limited to students of color, students from lower-income families, and students who will be the first in their families to attend college). 
All students who participate in the NU Experience Virtual Fly-In will have their application fee waived, should they choose to apply for first-year admission to Northeastern University for the 2021-2022 academic year.
In an effort to provide students with multiple opportunities to learn more about Northeastern University's vibrant community, we will be offering two virtual opportunities to choose from: a series of evening events (from Wednesday, October 21st through Thursday, October 22nd), or an all-day live event (on Saturday, December 5th). Both programs will cover the same material and provide participants with ample opportunities to engage with members of the Northeastern community. 
We anticipate offering programming between 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM Eastern Time, though specific timing may change depending on where the bulk of program participants are located.
While we will review applications to the program on a rolling basis, the priority deadline for the October series of programs is 10/18, and the priority deadline for the December program is 11/15. 
If you have any questions about the program or application, please contact The NU Experience Virtual Fly-In Team at If you haven't already, we also encourage you to visit the Undergraduate Admissions website to learn more about Northeastern!
