Traveling Scholar Program

Northwestern University is affiliated with the Traveling Scholar Program, sponsored by the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), a consortium of the Big Ten universities and The University of Chicago. This program enables a full-time PhD student in any of the participating universities to register for courses at other CIC institutions upon the recommendation of the student’s advisor and with prior agreement between the advisor and the course instructor.

Students who wish to participate must begin the application process six weeks prior to the first day of class. For appropriate forms and more information, see the CIC Web site.
