UChicago meets the full-demonstrated financial need of every admitted student through a need-based financial aid award that includes no loan expectation.

Although domestic applicants may apply for financial aid at any time, we recommend that they apply for aid when they apply for admission in order to receive an aid decision in a timely manner. UChicago does not charge an application fee to students who indicate that they intend to apply for financial aid. Exemplary students are selected to receive University merit scholarships on the basis of outstanding academic achievement including recognition as a National Merit Finalist or through the National Hispanic Recognition Program , extracurricular achievement, demonstrated leadership, and commitment to their communities.

Merit awards are determined by committee on the basis of the application for admission without consideration of financial need. We also offer scholarships for first-generation college students, the children of police and firefighters, and the children of Chicago Public Schools educators.

Each student admitted to the College will be automatically considered for merit scholarships; applicants do not need to fill out an additional application, with the exception of the Police and Fire Scholarship.

If you have made significant strides in your academic performance, please make sure that comes across in your application. The Additional Information portion of the application is a great place to communicate this. With that in mind, we truly embrace a holistic approach to reading applications; we pay attention to all the aspects, not just a single side, of the student.

If this might be an option for you, it is a good idea to let us know as soon as possible. Alerting our office to your possible gap year will not negatively affect your application.

We prefer that you indicate activities and accomplishments directly on your application. We have many students that participate in gap years before enrolling at UChicago. We are happy to approve deferral of enrollment for one to two years for students to participate in a wide variety of options: Gap years can be a great fit for certain students, and we are happy to approve the majority of requests that come our way!

We encourage students to apply during their senior year of high school, as high school students have better access to resources such as teacher letters of recommendation, transcripts, and advising.

Once admitted, they can defer their enrollment for the duration of their gap year or years. When students are admitted to the College and are certain that they will be participating in a gap year, they will email their regional admissions counselor for the deferral to be approved.

This will be an ongoing conversation between the prospective student and their admissions counselor. We certainly understand these obligations and are more than willing to work with students to help facilitate these gap years! Do you grant credit for AP and IB scores?
