About Your Bill

Your bill is a statement of your financial obligation to Northwestern with reference to your tuition and fees. When practical, each type of charge is listed as a different line item. Your current bill includes the balance from your previous bill and any transactions since your previous bill. Bills are prepared once a month.

You can choose to review your bill in two formats as well as view real-time account activity in your CAESAR account. All three are detailed below. Transactions that occur after the bill is generated each month will be reflected in the next monthly invoice, but will be visible in the CAESAR account view sooner.

Online Invoice

The QuikPAY® eBill service allows students and their guests to view bills online with email notification when each new bill is available. You may also view 12 months of past invoices online. Electronic billing is the preferred method of bill delivery.

Parents and guardians must first be granted Guest Access by the student to see bills online. Students and guests can see bills via CAESAR:

  • Student Homepage  >  My Account tile  >  View or Pay Monthly Bill
  • Guest Homepage  >  Account and Payments tile  >  View or Pay Tuition Bill

For information on how to read your monthly tuition bill, see Understanding Your Online Bill
