Non-Kellogg Student Registration

Registration Eligibility

All students at Northwestern University who are actively enrolled in a graduate program are eligible to enroll in one credit unit per quarter at the Kellogg School of Management.  The following conditions must be met:

  • The student must be active in another graduate program at Northwestern.
  • The enrollment request must be in a course that is listed on the “open class list” (linked in Step 1 of Registration) and have seats available at time of processing.
  • The student must receive written approval to register by Home school/Department.

Registration Rules

Non-Kellogg registration for Fall 2018 will begin on Monday, August 27, and end on Friday, August 31 at 5:00 PM.   All of the classes open to Non-Kellogg students have a limited number of seats available. The registration requests will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Kellogg students will be actively adding and dropping during this registration period, and thus some classes may close before the final registration deadline.  We will be processing all registration requests in the order in which they are received. Students will have the option to list a back- up request in case their first choice selection fills.

If a seat is available at the time of processing, we will register the student in the course and send a confirmation email back to the home school.  We will not be contacting the students directly and ask that home school administrators forward the confirmations to their students.

Kellogg faculty do not have authority to approve non-Kellogg student enrollment outside this process. Students who request professor approval to enroll in a course not on the list will not be accommodated. 

The deadline for submitting your request is Friday, August 31 at 5:00 PM. No exceptions can be made.

Steps for Registration

  1. Review the Fall 2018 list of classes available to Non-Kellogg students. Please keep in mind that class schedules are subject to change, including but not limited to cancellations.

  2. You must receive written approval from your home school prior to registering for Kellogg courses. You will be required to upload the approval form or email correspondence in the Online Registration Form. Registrations that do not contain home school approval will not be processed. A list of Authorized Approvers appears at the bottom of this page.
