Jump Start

Jump Start at Northeastern provides an early college opportunity. 

Students arrive on campus two weeks early, move into the residence hall, spend 10 days refreshing academic skills, get oriented to campus and the community, and make friends.

"I liked the environment and knowing that I have a lot of resources to look for when I’m struggling or need help. I also enjoy doing things that I’ve never done before and being able to experience them for the first time." - student from 2018

Watch here for Summer 2021 dates!
