Tuition Costs

To enroll in certificate program courses through Northwestern University School of Professional Studies, 100% of tuition is due at the time of registration. If your payment is returned for any reason, a $35 service fee will be charged.

Business Analytics Tuition

Tuition for each course (Core or Elective) in the Business Analytics program is $1,995. The total tuition for four core courses is $7,980.

Posted tuition rates are valid for the 2016–17 academic year ending August 31, 2017. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice.

Financial Aid

Students in non-degree Professional Development programs are not eligible for U.S. federal loans but may qualify for a private loan to offset tuition charges. Private loan eligibility may vary by lender and student.

In addition to paperwork required by the lender, non-degree Professional Development certificate program students need to complete a one-page University Aid Application for the relevant academic year. Please contact the Chicago Office of Financial Aid for comprehensive information and assistance with the process, and with any questions.

Other types of aid: Northwestern is an approved institution for the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award, so eligible students may use that scholarship program for Professional Development coursework. Professional Development programs do not qualify for benefits under Workforce Development, the Department of Veteran Affairs or the Department of Defense.

Employer-provided aid: Students who intend to use tuition reimbursement benefits provided through their employer should contact their employer directly to determine eligibility for non-credit-bearing, non-degree coursework before beginning the payment and registration process with Professional Development certificate programs.

Northwestern University employees: Benefits-eligible full-time Northwestern University employees may use Employee Reduced Tuition Benefits for School of Professional Studies non-credit Professional Development certificate programs, upon approval of their Tuition Reimbursement Application. For further assistance, please contact the Office of Human Resources.
