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 MBA 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 student must not have any holds (billing, health services, NU acknowledgement) on their student record.

  • The enrollment request must be in an MBA course that is included on the open “list of classes” (linked in Step 1 of Registration) and have seats available at time of processing.

  • The student must submit signed approval from home school/Department in order to register.

  • Please note that non-Kellogg registration is not offered during the Summer Quarter.


Registration Rules


Review the list of available classes for Fall 2023 Quarter. All Fall 2023 courses offered will be held in-person. Courses not on this list are not available to non-Kellogg students. Registration requests will be accepted from Friday, September 1, 2023 at 12:00PM until Friday September 8, 2023 at 12:00PM.


Kellogg’s Fall Quarter Starts:  Monday, September 18, 2023


We will process class registration requests on a first-come, first-served basis from September 11, 2023, and can take place up until September 18, 2023. Registration requests for students with registration holds will not be processed. All classes open to non-Kellogg students have a limited number of seats available. Kellogg students will be actively adding and dropping enrollments 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 to the student.


If there is a hold on your record the enrollment will not be processed, so we ask that you please make sure all holds (health, billing, Emergency contact information, etc...) are cleared before submitting your request.


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


The firm deadline for submitting your request for the Fall 2023 Quarter is Friday September 8, 2023 at 12:00PM. No exceptions can be made.

Steps for Registration


  1. Review the 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 in the Online Registration portal. Registrations that do not contain home school approval will not be processed. A list of Authorized Approvers appears at the bottom of this page.

  3. Complete and submit the Online Registration Form linked below.




Add/drop requests must be handled via email to Kellogg Registrar – NOT through CAESAR.

Please be aware of Kellogg courses that have First Class Mandatory. Failure to attend the first day of class will result in the enrollment being dropped.


Fall 2023 classes take place from Monday September 18 to December 1. Final exams will take place from December 2-9, 2023.
