Winter 2020 Course Choice Selection Form

Non-MEM Elective Courses

NOTE: MEM students will be responsible for registering themselves for any electives outside of those listed below. Electives 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.

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. 

For students who were hoping to take MEM 426 Project Management in the winter 2020 quarter, please note that there is a comparable course within IEMS, IEMS 343 Project Management, also taught by professor Mark Werwath, which will be offered in winter 2020 that you can request on the waitlist website above.


The list of winter 2020 classes available to non-Kellogg students is currently available. The window to submit winter 2020 registration requests will be from Monday, December 2 at 9:00 am through Monday, December 9 at 5:00 pm. 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 before December 2 at 8:00 am.
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 you can start submitting your requests. The 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 the week of December 9. 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 Billing Cycle

If you have questions or updates regarding winter 2019 courses, please contact MEM.

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 winter 2019 courses starting December 11, 2019 and students will receive an electronic tuition invoice in mid-January 2020 with a February 1, 2020 due date. If a student would like to be registered earlier and receive a January 1, 2020 tuition invoice due date, please indicate that in the winter 2019 registration Google Form. 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 early or late 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.  


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 Henry Crown Sports Pavilion, which is located in the same building as the MEM classroom space.
