The website is geared more towards IEMS undergrads, so not all information is applicable to MEM students.

Tuition INformation

Tuition Rates for 2018-19

If you register for one, two or three courses, the tuition fee is $5,177 per course. If you register for four courses you will be charged the quarterly rate of $17,677. 

Tuition Billing Cycle

If you have questions or updates regarding summer 2018 courses, please contact MEM.

MEM will begin registering MEM students for certain non-MEM fall 2018 courses starting in June 2018 if the student chooses. Please note that the billing cycle is such that those registered by the 10th of the month will get a bill due the 1st of the following month, and those billed after the 10th of the month will get a bill in the middle of the following month due the 1st of the month after their bill arrives. MEM will be registering MEM students for all fall 2018 courses starting September 11, 2018 and students will receive an electronic tuition invoice in mid-October with a November 1 due date. If a student would like to be registered earlier and receive an October 1 tuition invoice due date, please indicate that in the fall 2018 registration Google Form. Information regarding registration for fall courses will be sent in August, at which time filling out the Google Form at your earliest convenience would be best. Please note that some non-MEM course registrations may require an earlier registration (e.g. Kellogg or NUvention courses) that could create an early bill.

Tuition Invoices

Students will receive an email notification at your Northwestern email address when each new bill is available online. 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). The option of making your payments online or by mail will continue to be your choice.  


All MEM full-time students (those who are registered for 3 courses or more) will automatically have $100 “activity fee” added to their tuition bill each quarter. Full-time students will receive a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus/train ID pass that provides unlimited rides on the CTA buses and trains during enrollment as a full-time student.

Student Gym

All full and part-time students have free access to the NU state-of-the-art sports pavilion, which is located in the same building as the MEM classroom space.
