Spring 2019 Course Updates

Due to Professor McNeeley’s intimate teaching style and to create the best classroom experience, we are expecting students that will be graduating in Spring/Summer 2019 to take MEM 437 in Spring 2019 and students graduating in Fall 2019/Winter 2020 to take MEM 437 in Fall 2019.  This will ensure a balanced class size for both the Spring and Fall quarters, and provide the ideal experience for the capstone course.

Non-MEM Elective Courses

NOTE: MEM students will be responsible for registering themselves for any electives outside of those listed below. Electives must still be listed on the Registration Google Form and MEM staff will notify those whose elective choices do not meet program criteria.

IEMS courses

IEMS has a “Waitlist” website that students should utilize to request a permission number for available IEMS courses. Please note that IEMS-300 level courses are reserved for IEMS undergrad students first, then undergrads in general, and finally to grad students. The website is geared more towards IEMS undergrads, so not all information is applicable to MEM students. 


The list of Spring 2019 Kellogg courses open to Non-Kellogg NU Students will be available on the non-Kellogg Student Registration website on March 8. Requests can be submitted to Kellogg starting March 14 at 9 a.m. Registration transactions will be processed on a first come, first served basis. To submit your requests you will need MEM approval.

To submit your Kellogg Request for MEM approval:

  • Students must fill out MEM’s Kellogg Google Form to collect information on their choice for Kellogg courses.
  • MEM will review the Google Form and obtain the proper signatures on the students’ behalf.
  • MEM will then send each student the signed Kellogg Registration Approval Form for the student to upload to the Kellogg Registration System.
