Accepted Student On-Boarding

Congratulations on your acceptance to the MSEd Program! The materials below will provide useful information as you decide whether or not to attend the program. Please also be sure to reach out to your advisor! Talking to your advisor gives you a chance to ask any questions you might have as you are making your decision whether or not to attend, so please do not feel like you have to wait until you've already made a decision before reaching out! We want to make sure you have as much information as possible, so that you can make whatever is the right decision for you!

Checklist for New Students and other General Materials 

 The checklist for new students will break down the various things you will need to do as you consider whether or not to attend. Setting up your NetID and creating a email account are particularly important, even as you are still considering your options. The NetID will allow you to access Northwestern systems, and any communication from Northwestern's central systems will go to your email.

  • Confirmation of Intention to Register and Photo Release Form.pdf -- This may be sent to or to the MSEd Program office at 618 Garrett Place. 
  • $200 non-refundable tuition deposit -- This may either be paid by check using the tuition deposit form in your admissions packet, or by credit card directly through CAESAR.
    • If you pay by check: The check should be made out to Northwestern University, and should be sent directly to the MSEd Program office at 618 Garrett Place, Evanston IL 60208. Be sure to include your 7-digit student id number in the "memo" line of the check.
