Stipend Payments and Payroll Process

As part of their financial aid package, PhD students receive a monthly stipend. Payments are made over the academic year (September through August) in 12 equal payments. Stipend payments are deposited on the last business day of the month. If your stipend payment is not credited to your bank account or you encounter any type of issue, please contact Susan Jackman.

In order to receive your first stipend payment on Monday, September 30, 2024, you must complete the necessary payroll paperwork with Northwestern University. Dates for this deadline will be made available, summer 2024.

For complete details and information about the steps that need to be completed please see the Payroll website.
