Tuition billing information

As part of the Kellogg and Northwestern University’s efforts to make processing easy and convenient, all bills will be delivered electronically through eBilling, rather than printed and mailed. You will receive an email notification when each new bill is available online. However, you still have the choice to pay online or by mail.

To view, print or pay your bill, log into CAESAR QuikPAY, the eBill and ePay service, with your Northwestern NetID and password.

Billing timeline and refunds

Academic Quarter eBill available online
Payment due date
Summer quarter (One-Year, MMM) June 10 July 1
Fall quarter Aug. 10 Sept. 1
Winter quarter Dec. 10 Jan. 1
Spring quarter March 10 April 1
Please note: Any excess financial aid will be refunded the first day of full-time classes.


If you have excess financial aid (e.g., a credit balance) for living expenses, books and supplies, computer, etc. on your tuition account, the Office of Student Finance will automatically disburse your credit to your bank account if you have direct deposit. If you have not signed up for direct deposit, a paper check will be mailed to you. We refer to this process as the Automatic Refund Process, which is available for the fall, winter and spring quarters.

The Automatic Refund Process is only active during the first few weeks, on specific dates, at the beginning of each quarter (these dates will be emailed to you before the beginning of each quarter). If your loan funds disburse to your tuition account after these dates, and you are eligible for a refund, you will either have to request the refund online via CAESAR or contact the Office of Student Finance to request your refund.

For financial questions and concerns related to your student account, please email the department of Student Finance.

Please note: Since the Automatic Batch Refund process does not begin until the fall quarter, One-Year MBA and MMM students may request their financial aid refund for the summer quarter via CAESAR or contact the Office of Student Finance.

How to authorize others to view or pay your bill online

If someone other than you needs access to your online bill (e.g., a parent, sponsor, bank), you must first identify them as your authorized payer by logging in to QuikPAY through CAESAR. Each payer you have authorized will receive an email notification for each new bill, be able to view your bills online, have the option to make electronic payments and see their personal history of ePayments online. No action is required if you have previously authorized payers for your account. Those authorizations are still in effect. Visit NU’s Office of Student Finance for details on using QuikPay.

Billing preferences

Though we encourage you to receive your bills electronically, you may request paper billing. If you want to receive paper bills in the mail, you must request a paper bill under "User Preferences" in QuikPAY via CAESAR no later than June 1 for summer billing and Aug. 1 for fall-term billing.
