To enroll for any semester at Northwestern, all first-time freshmen and transfer students first must be admitted to the university, then obtain a class schedule and enrollment form, complete the form with an adviser and obtain the adviser’s signature prior to completing the enrollment process. The enrollment process must be completed in the registrar’s office.

Each first-year freshman must enroll in one of the Ranger Connection classes. This class is designed to help students connect to and learn more about the university.  Ranger Connection classes are listed under University Studies in the fall schedule.

Current students also must enroll through the registrar’s office except for those pre-approved by their advisers to enroll online.

Students admitted to the Graduate School may enroll in person or online using the RangerNet system on the Northwestern website. Students enrolling in graduate courses for the first time at Northwestern must enroll in person.
