Taking Classes in Other Northwestern Schools

Weinberg College students can enroll in many classes offered by other schools at Northwestern. You can take individual classes that interest you, and you can also choose to complete a minor, certificate, or concentration in another school. At most two units of non-Weinberg credit may be taken concurrently.

You can count a maximum of 11 units of credit from other schools of the University toward Weinberg College degree requirements. The following rules also apply:

Students majoring or minoring in computer science and those pursuing teaching certification through the School of Education and Social Policy are granted exceptions to the 11-course limit for courses taken toward these requirements. Contact your College Adviser for details.

Other students who think they can demonstrate a compelling and extraordinary need to take more than 11 units of credit outside Weinberg College should contact their College Adviser or the Assistant Dean for Curriculum.
