Registration information

All of our services are only open to Northwestern students, faculty, staff, and scholars. We do not offer classes to the general public. If you are not officially affliated with Northwestern, please see our resources page for recommendations about other schools in the area that do have open enrollment classes: http://groups.linguistics.northwestern.edu/esl/resources.htm

Please note that all of our services (group classes, tutoring, and NativeAccent) are offered as non-credit courses. If you are a student, these courses will appear on your transcript: the possible grades are "satisfactory" and "unsatisfactory". Although you will receive a grade, the grade will not affect your GPA. Because these course carry zero-credit, they will also not affect your courseload. Non-students, including faculty, postdocs, staff, pre-doctoral fellows, and visiting scholars, will be registered unofficially as auditors. Both students and staff/scholars must register for services through English Language programs (see below).

Winter Quarter 2018 Registration Information
