  • Apply online! Why wait for mail delivery when we can get your application online within 24 hours?
  • Make sure your transcripts are official! Official means that the transcript must be issued to Northeastern Illinois University and be received by our office in an sealed, stamped envelope from your high school or college.
  • Ask questions! If you have questions regarding status of your application for admission/graduation or for any general questions regarding graduate programs and admission please contact Graduate Admissions and Records:
