Welcome to Northeastern University- Seattle!
Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance! We hope you find this initial information helpful as you prepare to begin your studies in the College of Computer and Information Science. If you have any further questions or concerns after reading this information, please contact the Administrative Office of the College of Computer and Information Science by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone (617-373-8493). Below you will find information that will aid you as you prepare for your entrance into CCIS.
Your MyNeu account will be your portal for all things Northeastern. From there you will access your email, view and pay your bill, register for classes, and more. To activate your account, please go to myneu.neu.edu and click the link “How do I get a MyNeu username and password?” From there you can follow the instructions on the screen and enter in the required information.
A few tips for activation:
1. The system will ask for your SSN. If you did not enter your SSN in your application, or if you are an international student and do not have an SSN, you have been assigned a PKID (or an international ID). This number can be found in the confirmation email sent after you pay your enrollment deposit.
2. If the zip code of your permanent address is not 5 digits, the system may not recognize it. Instead, please enter the zip code 02115.
3. If you are having trouble activating your account, the MyNeu HelpDesk should be able to assist you. You can either submit a trouble ticket after the failed registration attempt, or send them an email at email@example.com.
On the Registrar’s website, you will find a catalog of course offerings for the upcoming semester. Simply click on “Banner Class Schedule” and enter in the term you wish to search. Then choose the subject and course level and hit “Submit”. PLEASE NOTE the campus on which each course is offered. Some courses will be offered only on the BOSTON campus, some on the SEATTLE campus.
Also on the Registrar’s website, you can find registration deadlines and an academic calendar. Please pay close attention to these deadlines. Adding or dropping courses after the registration dates listed on the registrar’s website may entail fees.
After reviewing the course offerings, students can register for courses online using the myNEU Web Portal. This system allows students to add and drop courses, confirm course registration, find room assignments, and obtain final exam schedules. The systems work on real-time; your course add/drop will be processed immediately.
Go to myNEU.neu.edu. Log in using your myNEU username and myNEU password (or click on “How do I get a myNEU username and password?” if you have never used the system before). Click on “Self- Service,” then click on “Course Registration.” Follow the onscreen prompts.

Graduate schools are evolving to provide courses and schedules that are more flexible for their students. Online and hybrid courses (courses attended partially online and partially on campus) are becoming more common. During your study at Northeastern University- Seattle, you will be learning in at least a partially online format. Many people are surprised to find that they need to approach online/hybrid courses a little differently in order to succeed. The links listed below show you an overview of how online classes work at Northeastern, provide a demo of an online class, and offer tips and strategies for successful online learning.
There are several options for housing in Seattle. Please see Seattle Housing for a list of local properties, their amenities, rent, and the contact information to inquire further.
