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

Summer Quarter 2016 Registration Information
WHEN WILL REGISTRATION START?
Registration for all of our summer services will begin online on this page in June 2016. We will be introducing an updated version of our online application, which should be quicker and easier to use. Specific registration dates for PhD students, postdocs, TGS masters students, and affiliates will be posted later in May. See our eligibility page for more information on who TGS students and scholars are, and who affiliates are.
PhD and masters students who apply for our tutoring and NativeAccent programs will be enrolled in a non-credit course (Linguistics 482 or 483). This course does not affect your GPA or course load, and you will enrolled in the class automatically by The Graduate School: you do not need a permission number for these courses.
HOW DO I APPLY/REGISTER FOR SERVICES?
To participate in any of our services, you must fill out an online application form through one of the links that will be posted on this page once registration opens in June. This is a separate process from registering for a course through the University's CAESAR system. You must fill out an application for each service you would like to participate in. Please note that the system will only allow applications from eligible applicants (see above for details on eligibility and registration times).
CAN YOU SEND ME A REMINDER WHEN REGISTRATION OPENS?
