Learn about the application process for your program of interest

As one of the world’s great intellectual destinations, the University of Chicago empowers students and scholars to ask big questions, break disciplinary boundaries, and challenge conventional thinking in virtually every field.

An integral part of Chicago’s urban landscape—with additional locations in Beijing, Delhi, London, Paris, and Hong Kong—UChicago, its world-class Medical Center, and three national laboratories have helped launch and advance the careers of Nobel laureates, CEOs, Supreme Court justices, literary giants, MacArthur “geniuses,” astronomers, astronauts, and more.

Please note that the Graduate Admissions Office will be closed on the following dates:

Although we will be open, we would caution visitors that the Fridays of Alumni Weekend (Friday, May 1) and of Convocation (Friday, June 8) are particularly challenging for parking and navigating campus.
