Returning Home

Steps for returnees

Once you return to your home country, there are many ways to remain connected to Northwestern and to share your experience with other students.

Complete an evaluation

IPD will send you a link to an on-line evaluation form. Your feedback is important in improving the experience for exchange students

Request your transcript

IPD will send one official copy of your Northwestern transcript to your home university, for the purpose of transferring credit. If you wish to request additional copies of your transcript, follow the instructions for requesting a transcript through the Registrar’s Office. Unofficial copies can be printed through CAESAR.

Join Northwestern’s International Alumni Club

Club members and attend Northwestern alumni, admissions and international student orientation events in your home country. Delegations from Northwestern travel regularly around the world. We will keep in touch with you and invite you to events. Visit the Northwestern’s International Alumni Club website.

Serve as resource for future exchange students

As part of an exchange, Northwestern will likely be sending students to your home university every year. We’d love for you to connect with our students and help them adjust and succeed.

Also, your home university will be sending students to Northwestern in future years. Because of your experience, you can serve as a great resource for Northwestern-bound students.
