ENROLLMENT DETAILS

WINTER 2024

Enrollment for all courses is accepted each quarter once the brochure has been posted on the website nualumnae.org  We cannot provide advance notice of the posting.

Pricing

  • EACH 90 minute, 9-week course is $225.00. The fee covers in-person attendance and grants access to each live-streaming in-person lecture and the weekly recording which is available for 6 days only following the lecture.  For those attending in person, a registration card must be shown each time you enter.
  • Course fees are not prorated; late registration requires payment of the full course price. Late registrants will NOT be able to access recordings from prior weeks if the links and passcodes have expired.
  • There is no multi-course discounting.
  • In-person per diems are available: $30 per session by cash or check made payable to Northwestern University. Per diem students will not have access to lecture recordings.  There are no online per diems.

How to Enroll

New Students: If this is your first Alumnae course ever, create an account profile as “General Public.”

  • Verify your email address. Typos or an unused email address will make it impossible to send you necessary information.
  • One needs to create an account profile once. If the system does not accept your email address, it is likely that you already have an account on the website. For assistance with issues creating an account, complete the Help Form on the Norris Box Office website. Do not create another account.
