How the Program Works

Getting Started in Explore

Our experienced advisors in the Explore Program will guide you as you learn about Northeastern’s 220+ majors, and help you stay on track for graduation as you explore. Your advising experience begins before you even begin your first semester through our pre-orientation advising process and mentoring support for new students.

Let’s Get Started

While you are in the Explore Program

We help you connect with students, advisors, faculty, and even alumni across the university through our first-year seminar courses, signature events, and student leader network. We encourage you to ask questions and practice your networking skills as you prepare to declare your major, explore co-op opportunities, and develop a strategic plan for academic and experiential engagement at Northeastern.
