Associate to Master’s (A2M) Programs at Northeastern University

Driven by the mission to expand access to higher education, Northeastern’s associate to master’s (A2M) programs offer life-changing experiences to students by providing accessible, community-oriented, and career-focused educational pathways. They empower individuals with some college credit to earn their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a flexible and supportive format, enabling them to advance their careers in in-demand fields.

Affordability is a cornerstone of A2M. Students in these programs may receive multifaceted support on their path to earning a degree, depending on need and availability. These services include career, academic, and financial advising; textbooks; transportation; childcare vouchers; computers and other technology; and the services of dedicated program success coaches. Qualified students in our A2M programs can receive scholarship funding up to 100% of tuition costs.
