Policies, Registration, Bus and Parking Information

Course Registration

As of Fall 2017 quarter, online registration for Alumnae continuing education courses is the only way to register.  Mail-in registrations will no longer be accepted.

Online registration for all four courses will be accepted each quarter once the brochure has been mailed and posted on this website (http://www.nualumnae.org/continuing_ed). 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   An alternative option for registering online is to do so in-person at the Norris Box Office.   

(See their website for hours of operation.)


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.
