You will be asked to select the division for which you would like to apply. If you are interested in more than one program, you will need to fill out a secondary application for each additional area/division. If you are applying to any of the programs within the Theatre Arts Division, be sure to watch this video from our Theatre Arts Division Director, George Keating, before you apply!

All applications require a $50 non-refundable application fee. If you are submitting more than one application, you only need to pay the application fee once. This fee is not creditable toward tuition or other fees in the advent of admission. You will have the option to pay this fee online once you submit the application, or you can submit it directly through this link: Pay My Application Fee

NHSI will waive the application fee for families with financial need.  Please email nhsi@northwestern.edu to submit this request.
