MEM Updates

Classes will be held in-person with selected remote course options.

Non-MEM Elective Courses

NOTE: MEM students will be responsible for registering themselves for any electives outside of the programs 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 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 programs below, open courses may be updated on the MEM Student Canvas Registration page as information becomes available to MEM staff but the most complete information will come from the individual program websites. Modes of teaching (remote/in-person/synchronous/asynchronous) will be updated on Canvas or in the course description. If the mode of teaching will determine your choices and has not yet been updated, feel free to follow-up by email.

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. 


The list of Kellogg classes will be available at a later date (TBD). Kellogg will have a registration survey that will only be open during a short window right before the fall quarter. No exceptions can be made after the window closes. Kellogg will process class registration requests on a first come, first served basis. No exceptions can be made. 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 form as soon as possible.
3. MEM staff will complete and sign the Kellogg Registration form based on your 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 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.

Tuition Information

Tuition Rates for 2022-23

Tuition rates for the 2022-2023 school year have increased, starting this fall 2022 quarter. The exact cost of courses as well as the four-course flat fee is now as follows:

  • $5,851 per class
  • $19,978 per quarter when you are registered for four classes in the same quarter

Tuition Billing Cycle

Filling out the course request form/survey is a request for MEM to register you for those courses; it is not an official registration. MEM will begin officially registering students during the first week of September. Students should monitor their university email closely during this time and log into CAESAR regularly to complete any necessary acknowledgements and clear any holds on their account. MEM will not be able to register any students with holds on their accounts.

If you have questions about billing cycle and tuition due dates, please see the Student Finance website. Please note that some non-MEM course registrations may require an earlier registration (e.g. NUvention courses) or a later registration (e.g. Kellogg courses) that could create an earlier or later bill, respectively.

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.  

Activity Fee and CTA UPass

In a typical quarter all MEM full-time students (those who are registered for 3 courses or more) will automatically have $125 “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. If you have questions on the activity fee please contact MEM.

Student Gym

All full and part-time students have free access to the NU state-of-the-art Henry Crown Sports Pavilion, which is located in the same building as the MEM classroom space. Please check the gym website for updates.


Information regarding graduation will be hosted on our graduation page. When you have determined what quarter you expect to graduate please let MEM staff know so that we can update our records. Your expected graduation date can be changed if you take more or fewer classes in a quarter than you predicted or if something else comes up and you need to take time off from the program. Please update MEM staff of any such changes as soon as you are ready/able.
