Review Financial Aid Award

Once you have activated your NetID, you’ll have the ability to check your financial aid status online by logging onto Northwestern’s CAESAR and accessing the “Financial Aid” link. If you submitted all required materials, you should be able to view your financial aid information on CAESAR by accessing the “View My Financial Aid” link under "Financial Aid.”

In some cases, our Financial Aid Office may require additional information, in which case your award will be available as soon as follow-up questions are resolved. We will also mail a hard copy of your financial aid decision; note that this will arrive separately from your admissions offer.
