This section outlines some of the billing and financial arrangements for Hebrew University, and is intended as a guide to help you navigate the financial aspects of your study abroad process. You should always refer to your program materials and requirements for the most current information and instructions.
Once you are accepted to Hebrew University, you may be required to pay a deposit to confirm your place on the program. If required, it is your responsibility to pay the deposit; Northwestern cannot pay or waive deposits for affiliated programs.
Your Northwestern invoice will be issued through CAESAR on the regular quarterly schedule, and will include your Hebrew University tuition and housing (including the required ulpan), as well as the NU study abroad fee. Refer to your program materials for the most current cost information.
If you receive financial aid and/or loans from Northwestern, these funds will continue to apply directly to your CAESAR account.
If you use the Northwestern 9PAY plan, you may continue to use 9PAY for your NU-billed study abroad expenses, but you should request a study abroad 9PAY estimate to have your plan set up appropriately.
If you receive an invoice from Hebrew University that includes your tuition, housing, or ulpan, you should not pay it. Northwestern will pay directly for these charges, and you will be billed for them through CAESAR.
Additional fees may apply for certain courses, housing add-ons, field trips, or other optional items related to your program. If applicable, you are responsible for paying these fees directly.
