Northwestern’s 16-week spring semester classes will begin on Monday, Jan. 11, 2021.

Students may enroll in a variety of classes that will lead to bachelor’s degrees within three schools at Northwestern – School of Arts and Sciences, School of Education and School of Professional Studies.

Applications for admission into the graduate program will be accepted through the beginning of January.

“This upcoming spring semester is an excellent time for potential students to begin their graduate education,” Dr. Shawn Holliday, associate dean of graduate studies, said. “Northwestern offers a wide array of graduate programs that will build specialty knowledge to provide larger earning potential. Our small class sizes and supportive faculty also help students succeed.”

“The FAFSA for the 2020-21 academic year, which opened Oct. 1, 2019, encompasses the fall 2020, spring 2021 and summer 2021 semesters,” Tara Hannaford, director financial aid and scholarships, said. “By completing this early it allows for our office to inform students of their aid eligibility and to assist those selected for verification to submit the needed documents.”
