Welcome to Proyecto Pa'lante

We are an academic support services program that has historically served Latino students who demonstrate academic potential, but do not meet the general University admissions requirements. Proyecto Pa'lante is also a University admitting body, responsible for recruiting and admitting students.

Support for Latino and first generation college students

Students in this program are given a two-year adjustment period to meet University academic requirements. They must actively participate in the assistance programs provided and show evidence of academic progress.

Students receive:

  • guidance and support from an academic advisor until the requirements to declare a major are met.
  • integral information about transitioning and excelling in college via 3-credit academic transition courses. 

These courses complement the program's objectives to provide personal and academic support services designed to increase scholastic achievement and persistence towards graduation. Remember that we are here to support you as you pursue your educational goals.

Eligible applicants for admission will meet the following academic requirements:

  • First Year student, AND
  • Under 21 years old, AND

To apply, you must submit an application and fee, along with all documents and materials identified in the Freshman Applicants portion of the Northeastern admission application. For more information about the program, please call (773) 442-4980.
