First-time admission to college degree programs at Northeast is open to anyone with the Alabama High School Diploma or an equivalent and proper documentation as defined by the State Board of Education.


Students with credit from another college will be admitted unconditionally if eligible to return to their previous college. If they are not, they should contact the Office of Admissions for more information.

We welcome international students. We are glad to learn of your interest in college and look forward to having you as a student. Please see our Admission Requirements for International Students.

Under certain circumstances, an applicant who does not meet admission requirements may be admitted to a particular course or program that does not carry college credit.


High school students have two options for taking college courses.

Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit students take college courses to earn credit for both college and high school requirements. Both the students and the courses must be approved in advance by the high school and Northeast. See full information at
Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit.

Accelerated students take college courses that do NOT count as high school credit, if approved by their high schools and with certain limitations.

Students interested in either dual enrollment/dual credit or accelerated enrollment should see their high school counselors for full information. High school transcripts are also required. At Northeast, contact Sherie Grace, Dean of Student Services.

After accelerated or dual enrollment/dual credit students become eligible for regular (unconditional) admission to Northeast by submitting proof of high school graduation, the courses they have completed at Northeast will count for college credit.

For Readmission, submit the same Application for Admission form as a new student, and send transcripts of any other college work taken since leaving Northeast. You must apply for Readmission if you did not enroll for a semester, unless you are enrolling for Fall after having been enrolled Spring and skipping the intervening Summer.

You will be assigned a time to take the Compass Test for placement in math, English, and reading classes. See Compass Test.
For free online practice for the Compass Test, go to Test Prep Review.

Nursing applicants must also take the TEAS Vģ.
