Accelerated Programs

Northeastern is a top 50 research university – a globally-recognized brand. At the same time, the College of Professional Studies is committed to making professional education affordable.   

In addition to competitive tuition rates, we offer four accelerated ways to make your education more affordable:

  1. Receive transfer credit for demonstrated competencies, accelerate through a program, and reduce the cost of tuition 8-20%, if you have professional certifications. 
  2. Complete a bachelor’s degree and earn a master’s degree in just one additional year – and at a significant tuition savings with one of our accelerated PlusOnes programs.
  3. Earn two Northeastern graduate credentials at the same time: a master’s degree and a graduate certificate in your area of concentration, by taking one more course – an 83% savings on the cost of a graduate certificate. Learn more about our graduate certificate options.
  4. Qualify for a Double Husky Scholarship – with a 25% reduction in tuition – if you have earned a prior degree from Northeastern.
