Apply Early Decision to Northwestern

We encourage all prospective students for whom Northwestern is their first choice to apply early decision; our early decision deadline is November 1. Northwestern uses the Common Application. Once your account is created, you will be able to access Northwestern's member screen and Writing Supplement.  Regular decision applicants must apply by January 1. For more information, please visit our Apply section.

Do you have the next BIG idea?

Through Project Pitch, students will work in teams to translate their ideas into action, gaining hands-on startup experience and the chance to pitch their idea in a final competition and win some big prizes.

Supporting Wild Ideas

Designed to minimize the red tape for individuals and student groups, Northwestern’s student government will fund new ideas for exciting projects through the accessible and flexible Wild Ideas Fund.
