WINTER 2022 COURSE SELECTION FORM

Non-MEM Elective Courses

NOTE: MEM students will be responsible for registering themselves for any electives outside of those listed below. This means students must obtain permission numbers from relevant courses on their own. Electives students wish to take must still be listed on the Registration Google Form and MEM staff will notify those whose elective choices do not meet program criteria.

Find a list of non-MEM elective courses taken by MEM students in previous quarters.

For courses below, modes of teaching (remote/in-person/synchronous/asynchronous) will be updated shortly. If the mode of teaching will determine your choices and has not yet been updated, feel free to follow-up by emailing MEM.

IEMS Courses

IEMS has a “Waitlist” website that students should utilize to request a permission number for available IEMS courses. Please note that IEMS-300 level courses are reserved for IEMS undergrad students first, then undergrads in general, and finally to grad students. The website is geared more towards IEMS undergrads, so not all information is applicable to MEM students. 

Kellogg

The list of Winter 2022 Kellogg classes will be available December 3rd at 5pm. Winter 2022 offered courses will be entirely remote (synchronous). Courses not on this list will not be available to non-Kellogg students. Registration requests will be accepted from Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at 9:00 am to Wednesday, December 15, 2021 at 4:00pm. Check the MEM registration website for more detailed instructions about the Kellogg registration process. No exceptions can be made. Students must fill out a separate "Winter 2022 Kellogg Course Choices Google Form" to make their selections. Please check the Non-Kellogg Student Registration page for updates.

To request registration for Kellogg courses:
1. Check the Non-Kellogg student registration website to find out what classes are available.
2. Fill out MEM's Kellogg Course Choice google form as soon as possible. (Winter link coming soon)
3. MEM staff will complete and sign the Kellogg Registration form based on your google form submission. We will then give you the form which you need to submit your official request to Kellogg. Submitting your form on time will give the MEM staff enough time to complete and return your registration form before registration opens.
4. When non-Kellogg student registration opens on December 8 you can start submitting your signed requests. Kellogg's registration is first-come, first-served so we recommend submitting your requests as soon as possible after the registration opens.

Kellogg will start registering students on a first-come, first-served basis. Check your classes in CAESAR periodically to find out if you got into the classes of your choice. If you did, email MEM to let us know what class(es) you are in. If you got into a Kellogg class you did not want or you change your mind about a Kellogg class you did get, contact the Kellogg Registrar and cc MEM in your email asking to be dropped from a course.

Then, to view and optionally print your bill, log-in to CAESAR with a Northwestern NetID and password to locate the bill (CAESAR > For Students > Financial Services > View My E-Bill & E-Payment).

If you have questions on the activity fee please contact MEM.
