SESP Information Sessions

SESP Information Sessions

Information Sessions

With more than 500 undergraduates, the School of Education and Social Policy (SESP) is among the smallest of the six undergraduate schools at Northwestern. SESP is recognized for the scholarship of our outstanding interdisciplinary faculty, our engaged students and our supportive advising model. A student may enter SESP either as a new Northwestern student or an interschool transfer student from another Northwestern school after enrolling. 

SESP welcomes prospective students and their families to attend an information session to learn more about the School and our undergraduate programs. We offer daily information sessions, Monday through Friday, at 3:30 p.m. in the Student Affairs Office in Annenberg Hall, Room 123.

These sessions are for all prospective first-year and transfer students, and for current Northwestern students interested in an interschool transfer (IST) to SESP. Typically led by a current undergraduate SESP student, these sessions are a great way to get to know our community and ask questions in a small-group environment.

Prospective Northwestern Students 

Students who plan to apply or have recently applied to Northwestern as new first-year or transfer students, are considered "prospective students." All new student admission is conducted by the Office of Undergraduate Admission. Contact them with any admission-related questions, and be sure to officially sign up with them if you come to campus.


Register through the Office of Undergraduate Admission for a SESP-specific information session

Interschool Transfer (IST) Students

Current Northwestern students seeking to switch from another school to SESP must attend a SESP information session as part of the IST process. The deadline to submit all IST materials is the fourth Friday of each quarter during the regular academic year (fall, winter and spring quarters). The Office of the Registrar details the official process for applying to IST. In addition to submitting the Registrar's IST application, you must complete SESP-specific application pieces, also by the deadline. You will receive detailed information about the SESP side of the process when you attend a SESP info session. There is no need to sign up beforehand; just show up any weekday around 3:30pm, and check in at the front desk of the SESP Student Affairs Office (room 123 in Annenberg Hall).
