FALL 2021 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 fall 2021 classes available to non-Kellogg students is not available yet. Kellogg's registration survey will open on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at 9 am and will close on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at 4 pm. No exceptions can be made. Kellogg will process class registration requests on a first come, first served basis starting the week of September 15 (registrations can take place up until September 22, 2021). 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.
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 September 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.

If a student becomes aware of a graduate-level elective of interest, put it on the Google Form, and the MEM Program will let you know if it is possible.

Tuition Information

Tuition Rates for 2021-22

Tuition rates for the 2021-2022 school year are as follows: If you register for one, two or three courses, the tuition fee is $5,567 per course. If you register for four courses you will be charged the quarterly rate of $19,009. 

Tuition Billing Cycle

If you have questions or updates regarding fall 2021 courses, please contact MEM.

Students have an option for "early registration." If a student wants to be registered before September 11 then their tuition bill will be due October 1, 2021.

MEM will be registering all MEM students (who do not opt for early registration) for all fall 2021 courses starting September 11, 2021 and students will receive an electronic tuition invoice in mid-October 2021 with a November 1, 2021 due date. If a student would like to be registered earlier please see the options above and then please indicate your choice on the fall 2021 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.  

CTA UPass

In a typical quarter 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. If you have questions on the activity fee for the spring 2021 quarter 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.

Graduation - December 2021 and June 2022
