Registration-Related Information

Pre-Registration for fall 2021 will begin on Monday, August 16th!
What happens if a class fills up during registration?
  1. Place your name on the waitlist.
  2. Wait to be contacted by the program assistant to see if you are able to register for the class.
  3. Once contacted, you must either remove your name and register for the class or remove your name from the waitlist.
Why do asynchronous classes list "permission number only"?

Since students have been allowed back on campus, many of the courses offered during spring 2021 will be taught in-person or synchronous remote. If there is a valid reason a student may not attend the synchronous session, a student may request a permission number from the program assistant to register for the asynchronous section.

Please send the request for a permission number to neuroscience@u.northwestern.edu listing:

  1. the reason you may not attend the synchronous section listing the specific class or time zone that caused the conflict
  2. your registration times
Once approved by the Instructor and Dr. Kilman, the program assistant will issue the permission number. Please do NOT contact the Instructor or Dr. Kilman directly. All reasons for requests are confidential and will only be shared with the Instructor and Dr. Kilman.

Please be sure to email neuroscience@u.northwestern.edu to request an appointment with an advisor if you need some guidance prior to registration. Be sure to list your availability Monday through Friday, 11 am until 4 pm CST.

When is registration for fall 2021?

Registration for the fall 2021 term will be Thursday, August 19th and Friday, August 20th. It will continue on Monday, August 23rd and Tuesday, August 24th.

What happens if a class fills up during registration? 

When a class closes out during registration, a wait list will open up within CAESAR.  Please add your name to the waitlist if you intend to take the course. The program assistant, after communicating with the Director of Undergraduate Studies and Instructors, typically will add students if other students drop the class and/or if additional seats are available in the lecture room. If the instructor can add you, the program assistant will send you a "permission number" to allow you to register for the class. More senior students and those who put their names on the waiting list earliest are normally given preference. If you have special reasons for needing the course, you should e-mail to neuroscience@u.northwestern.edu with a note explaining the circumstances, but you must add your name to the wait list first. The program assistant, after communicating with the Director of Undergraduate Studies and Instructors, typically will email students if other students drop the class and/or if additional seats are available in the lecture room.

 

Can I count courses offered in Summer Session or the evening program toward the Neuroscience major?

Courses taken in Northwestern's Summer Session count toward the requirements of the Neuroscience major. However, courses offered by the School of Professional Studies' evening program are not generally acceptable toward the degree's requirements.
