Undergraduate Admissions

Thank you for your interest in the College of Arts, Media and Design. Determining where to spend the next few years of your life is no easy mission, but we’re here to help make the application process as simple as possible. Below are the necessary steps to ensure that your application is in the right hands and ready for review. But first—we recommend visiting campus to see all that CAMD has to offer.


Campus Visits & CAMD Info Sessions

Join students, professors, co-op advisors, and other applicants for a lively info session at CAMD. Learn about our diverse academic programs to decide which one best aligns with your passions, interests, and goals. Listen to personal stories that paint a picture of the CAMD experience. Gain insight on the real-world experiences you’ll acquire through our signature co-op program. And of course, get answers to all of your questions as you move forward in your college search.

We would love to meet you!

To schedule a time to meet with a College of Arts, Media and Design current student, faculty member, or admissions representative, please check out our CAMD Visit Request form.

The Prospective Student Information Session kicks off with a 30-minute presentation on our distinctive academic and experiential programs along with our admissions and financial aid process. Following the presentation, one of our Husky Ambassadors will take you on a 1-hour tour of campus to show you academic and research areas, a first-year residence hall, and the recreation centers.

The Admitted Student Program combines a 45-minute information session followed by a 1-hour campus tour. The presentation is designed for those who cannot attend an admitted student Welcome Day, but want to experience campus to gain a better understanding for the student experience and academic model at Northeastern. The presentation will be hosted by someone from the admissions team as well as a student to share their personal Northeastern journey.

To register for a general info session and campus tour, schedule a visit with Northeastern University Admissions.
