About NEIU

Traditional and non-traditional degree programs and numerous on and off campus opportunities are available at Chicago’s Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU).

The divisions of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Education make up NEIU’s traditional academics.

In addition to the bachelor’s degrees awarded through these departments, a non-traditional bachelor’s is also offered in interdisciplinary studies to working adult students. This program allows those students who would otherwise not be able to attend college to create a schedule that is workable for them.

Field-based learning and work opportunities are offered to all students in conjunction with traditional classroom attendance.

Other opportunities include the study abroad program, which allows students to attend an international university for a semester or year.

Student life at NEIU is lively, offering cultural and performing arts events as well as access to student organizations. Since the school is located in one of the most vibrant American cities, there are also activities of all types to be found beyond the campus walls.

Tuition is substantially lower for in-state residents. Financial aid is also available to students who qualify.

The admission requirements for recent high school graduates are different than the requirements for older students. It is best to consult the NEIU admissions office or website for information on what you need to apply.
