Registration and Policies

Online Courses

FALL 2020 courses will be offered online only, via Zoom webinar.

ONLINE COURSE Course Registration

All registrations will be online.  No in-person registration at Norris Box Office, no mail registration, and no phone registrations will be available.

Online registration for all courses will be accepted each quarter once the brochure has been mailed and posted on this website.  We cannot provide advance notice of the mailing/posting day as it depends on several variables.

 

To access course registration: go to nbo.northwestern.edu and follow the appropriate steps to enroll in the desired number of courses. Your email confirmation from Norris Box Office verifies your registration but it is not your Zoom entry to class.

 

Zoom Course Entry

At least 24 hours, but not more than 48 hours before the start of each of the sessions, you will be emailed a link to click on at the start of the specific session. You will also be emailed a reminder and the link one hour prior to the start of each session.

  • Plan on “arriving” at the session at least 10 minutes before the session begins.
  • Your link is specific to your email and may not be shared.
  • If you cannot attend the live-streaming of the session, the link will give you access to a recording of the session for six days, ending when the next session begins.

 

Refund Policy

If you withdraw from class prior to the first Zoom webinar, a $10 cancellation fee must be purchased online and a full refund will be given to the credit card used for the initial purchase.

 

Thereafter, no refunds will be given.

Continuing Education Seating Policy

As stated in our brochure, be sure to bring your class entry card to each class, as it must be shown to the proctors at the door for entry to the class. Please note: in order to guarantee seating for our registered students, there will be only one time you will be allowed in with a temporary card. After that, you will be required to purchase a replacement card at the per diem price.

 

Bus Information

Shuttle buses between West Lot D and class locations run every 15 to 20 minutes from 8:30 a.m. until 9:45 a.m. No buses run between 10:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. The “Early Bird Lunch Bus” begins loading at 11:00 a.m. for afternoon students planning to eat lunch on campus before class. Buses for afternoon classes then run every 15 to 20 minutes until 12:45 p.m. There is no bus service between 1:00 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. Bus service resumes at 1:45 p.m. and continues until twenty minutes after the last class ends, which is usually 2:45 p.m.

Parking in Extreme Conditions

The snow has made parking a challenge in the north portion of the Ryan Field lot where your parking pass is valid. **As long as the permit is hanging and the vehicle is not obstructing or blocking a lane, the vehicle should be fine.**  If you have observed these guidelines but still get a ticket, you may do the online appeal within ten days, or go to the Parking Office immediately, 1841 Sheridan Road, inside the Segal Visitors Center garage.  This address is on the ticket also.
