Information Sessions

With approximately 400 undergraduates, the School of Education and Social Policy (SESP) is the smallest of the six undergraduate schools at Northwestern. Because our School is recognized for the scholarship of our outstanding interdisciplinary faculty, our engaged students and our supportive advising model, admission is competitive. A student may enter SESP either as a new Northwestern student or as a transfer student from another Northwestern school.


High School and Non-Northwestern Transfer Students

Current high school students or students at another college or University should contact the Northwestern Admissions Office for specific admissions information. The Admissions Office reviews all applications and makes the final admissions decision.

Inter-School Transfer

Current Northwestern students seeking to transfer to SESP must also attend one of our information sessions, held Monday through Friday at 3:30 p.m. in the SESP Student Affairs Office (first floor of Annenberg Hall). These sessions provide students with an overview of SESP, our programs, the curriculum and the interschool transfer process. It is important to note that our interschool transfer process is unique to SESP.

The deadline to submit all IST materials is the fourth Friday of the quarter.

The Academic Advising Center is a helpful resource in the interschool transfer process. Staff of the center are generally familiar with the unique requirements of all six undergraduate schools.

No need to register — just come to an Information Session

Information sessions take place daily, (Monday through Friday) at 3:30 p.m. in the Student Affairs Office in Annenberg Hall, Room 123.
