Students enjoying the culture fair

International Students

At Northeastern, we consider international students an integral part of our diverse student body. We have students from countries around the world who bring experience, perspective and background to our college community.


Why choose Northeastern?

We're the right size.

With about 1,000 students and over 80 programs of study, Northeastern is the perfect size to give you a university experience on a smaller scale. Our small class sizes average 22 students, and you will gain a wealth of knowledge from expert instructors.

We're an active campus.

The college experience goes beyond the classroom and you can connect to other students by joining one of the over 30 student clubs and organizations available. Many of our students say that some of their favorite memories and strongest friendships were gained through participating in student activities.

We have the support you need.

There are many resources on campus to make sure that you have a successful, positive experience. Our expansive Monahan Learning Center offers free tutoring, as well as several other support services, and our full-time international student coordinator is here for each student at every step: from visa advising to assistance adjusting to college life. 

All of this is available at our campus located on the beautiful plains of Sterling, Colorado, just a couple hours from the nearest airport, mountain adventure, or big city experience.

It's the campus life that I like the best. Always being with the team and living together and playing soccer everyday. Northeastern is a great opportunity to start your class experience.

Don't be scared and live the experience! You will learn a new language but also learn a new culture and this will help you grow.

What I love about Northeastern is definitely the community feeling and the feeling of comfort! It is such a small college, so everyone knows everyone! It is like a huge family.
