About NUflex

NUflex has been carefully designed with all new and continuing students in mind. Please continue to visit this page for updates as they become available. We will provide a webinar to answer your questions when more information becomes available.

How will NUflex offerings influence my SEVIS record?

We are directly engaging with the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and have requested updated guidance.  Guidance for Fall 2020 is expected soon.

I live in a different time zone than my faculty and campus. How will class schedules work for me?

Northeastern understands that students may be in different time zones for scheduled classes. Information about scheduling will be shared as soon as it becomes available.

What do I do when I go for my visa appointment?

The program start date on your I-20 will correspond to the academic term start date. OGS will provide an additional letter of support that explains the additional flexibility of NUflex.

Can I arrive on campus at any time during the academic term?

Northeastern is aware that visa appointments are delayed due to COVID-19. Please visit travel.state.gov for more information and visit this page for further updates. We will provide a webinar to answer this when more information becomes available.

What housing availabilities are possible for me if I arrive after the academic term start date?

On-campus housing availability is very limited. You will likely need to look for housing off campus, which is a common option for students. Many housing leases correspond to traditional academic term start dates. The Office of Off-Campus Housing and Support Services will be a key resource for finding off-campus housing.
