Plan Your Visit

Start your journey by planning your visit.

A visit to campus is the best way for you to experience Northwestern.

Most important, you can get answers to your questions about living and learning here. While you're here, explore any or all of the following options.

Take a campus tour and attend an information session

Our 45-minute information session, led by an admission counselor, provides an overview of the University and its six undergraduate schools, student life and the application process and financial aid, with time for a question/answer session at the end.

Most visitors pair their information session with a campus tour. Student-led tours depart from Segal Visitors Center immediately following information sessions, weather permitting. Advance registration is required for admission information sessions and campus tours.


Attend a class

To sample Northwestern's academic experience, it's best to observe a class. Each quarter, we approve a list of more than a hundred courses for prospective students to visit. Note that class visits are not available during the first two weeks of the quarter, on weekends, holidays, summer or during reading/exam weeks. 

Class visits for Fall Quarter 2015 are available starting October 5, ending November 20.
