How do I get a NetID? What can I do with a NetID?

Your NetID is your electronic identity at Northwestern. The most common format of a NetID is a combination of three letters (often related to your name) and three or four numbers. Once activated, use your NetID to login to Northwestern email, the student portal (CAESAR) and to access your financial aid packet and/or award.

Accepted students receive NetID activation instructions via email during the month of March (please check your spam and junk mail boxes). If you haven't received your NetID activation email by April 15, please contact us at

How do I get a Northwestern email account?

You will receive a Northwestern email account when activating your NetID.

Does Feinberg have health entrance requirements? When do I complete these?

Yes, mandatory health entrance requirements must be completed by ALL medical students prior to matriculating at Feinberg.

It is strongly advised that newly admitted students begin completing health entrance requirements as soon as possible so that there is ample time to complete antibody titer testing and tuberculosis screening that is required in addition to vaccination history.  

How do I complete the health entrance requirements?

Instructions to complete the health entrance requirements can be found in the Pre-Matriculation Module of the FSM Applicant Portal. The Student Immunization Form for Medical Students can also be found on the  Immunization Requirements page  of the Northwestern Medicine Student Health Service Evanston.  

Northwestern University Health Service
Health Information Management Services
633 Emerson St.
Evanston, IL 60208

Students who have questions regarding health entrance requirements should contact Health Information Management Services (HIMS)  at or phone (847)491-2117

What if I do not submit the Admission Health Record Form on time?

Any student who does not satisfy health entrance requirements before classes begin will not be permitted to participate in required clinical education activities that take place during the first week of classes. The university will also apply a late fee and place a subsequent registration hold on the student’s account if health requirements have not been completed by the Admission Health Record deadline outlined in the Pre-Matriculation Module of the FSM Applicant Portal

How do I obtain a Northwestern University ID card?

The Wildcard is the official Northwestern photo identification card. Once you have activated your Northwestern NetID, you are able to submit your Wildcard photo.

What is a CTA Ventra U-Pass, and how do I obtain one?

The Feinberg School of Medicine participates in the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) Ventra U-Pass Program for student use of public transportation. The U-Pass fare card may be used on CTA buses and trains. All enrolled students are required to participate in the U-Pass program whether they choose to use the fare card or not. 

In order to prepare a Ventra U-Pass fare card for you, CTA/Ventra must receive a headshot photo of you in .jpg format. The photo must clearly show your face (no sunglasses/no hats), the background cannot be too dark and the photo cannot include other people. The ideal photo to submit would be a passport photo. You can use the same photo you submit for your Northwestern Wildcard.

Send your .jpg format photo via email to using the subject line "U-PASS Photo." The submission deadline is June 15.

Please see the MD Education Ventra/CTA U-Pass page as well as the Chicago Transit Authority page to Get more information about the Ventra U-Pass program.
