If a student would like to be registered earlier and receive a June 1, 2019 tuition invoice due date, please indicate that in the summer 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.
