Dear Alumnae Continuing Education students, 

Regretfully, The Alumnae of Northwestern University Continuing Education Program is cancelling all four Spring 2020 courses.

Northwestern University is taking significant steps to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on its campuses and protect the health and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and guests.  Because Northwestern is not having spring classes onsite for the foreseeable future, we cannot hold our classes onsite, precipitating the cancellation for spring.  At present, we do not to offer our courses online. 

A full refund will be automatically forthcoming. Those of you who paid by check or cash will be sent a check for a full refund from The Alumnae of Northwestern University.  The Norris Box Office will be issuing full refunds to those who paid by credit card.  The refund will appear as a credit posted to the original payment card used for the registration.  

Under these circumstances, there is no need to purchase a cancellation fee.

If you have any questions, please contact The Alumnae's voicemail (847-604-3569) or The Alumnae email:   [email protected]
