A student myNortheastern account is created when a student is admitted to the university. Services and links change as students progress through the admission, orientation and enrollment processes. Access to myNortheastern depends on each person claiming their account.
NOTE: Due to the sensitive nature of the information you will enter while claiming your account, ITS recommends NOT using a public or shared computer.

- Students who have both an SSN and international ID or PKID must use their SSN to claim their account. If you do not have a SSN, check your acceptance letter. Your PKID is included in that information. If you do not have your acceptance letter, you can access the information online via the applicants status check website. You will need your NUID number found on your application acknowledgement letter.
- If your permanent address does not have a U.S. zip code, use 02115 (Northeastern’s main Boston zip code).
