Northeastern Illinois University encourages international students to apply directly to the University when possible. However, we understand there are times when additional information and/or some help might be needed from someone who understands your language and cultural needs. As a result, Northeastern works with selected, reputable international recruiting agents around the globe. These agents function as "in country" representatives of the University and help to recruit qualified international candidates for intensive English language study or undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
