COVID-19 Refund Policy

The safety and wellbeing of our students is of paramount importance to us. Northwestern Summer Session continues to work closely with the Northwestern University administration to plan for any potential impact of the novel COVID-19 virus. University updates are posted regularly online.

We understand that committing to a summer program requires a financial commitment for families. As a result of this period of uncertainty created by COVID-19, we are offering a full refund of the required deposit, should you cancel your enrollment prior to June 1, 2020. At this time, Northwestern looks forward to welcoming you to our College Prep programs.



Scholarship Deadline: March 1, 2020

A limited number of scholarships will be given preference to domestic students who are currently in their junior year, demonstrate financial need, and hold strong academic and extracurricular achievement.

Students can identify if they are interested in an Application Fee Waiver and/or Tuition Scholarship during the application process; thereafter, we will email students the link to the Application Fee Waiver and Scholarship forms.

Students that plan to submit a Tuition Scholarship Application would have already submitted their full Admissions Application (online application, letters of recommendation, and official transcript) by March 1, 2020. Scholarship Applications received after this date will not be considered. All scholarship applicants will be notified of the scholarship evaluation committee’s decision approximately two weeks after the deadline.

Scholarship applicants may submit an Application Fee Waiver Form in lieu of the application fee with their application for admission. Students will be notified as soon as possible if this request is not approved. Approval for an application fee waiver does not constitute approval for a scholarship or acceptance to the program.

Other Resources for Financial Assistance
You may wish to search for other financial assistance opportunities by talking with your guidance or career counselor at your school, local PTA, civic (Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, Alumni Associations, etc.) and religious organizations.
