UChicago College Admissions
Education at the University is world-class, that’s a given. It takes time, however, to understand why… . It’s about more than the books on classical philosophy and modern poetry, more than the Nobel laureates and Guggenheim fellows. It’s ultimately about the people in the room next to you, the conversations you’ll have while sitting up until the sky lights with the dawn.

We’re excited to announce a new, comprehensive approach to student financial aid and support for incoming students in the Class of 2019 and beyond: No Barriers. Through No Barriers, students will see:

  • No application fee for any student applying for need-based aid
  • No loans included in student financial aid packages
  • Easier aid applications using only the FAFSA and a brief worksheet— no more CSS Profile!
  • Expansion of our Odyssey Scholarship program for low-income students to provide additional financial support and peer/professional mentoring
  • Much more!

Please see the link above for more information about the No Barriers program— we’re excited to share this new opportunity with you.

When analyzing applications are you more interested in applicants who have high GPAs and high ACT scores or the people who tend to have a fairly high GPA and ACT scores, but balance it with other factors such as volunteer work, school activities, internships, ect.?

In all things, balance.

We look at applications holistically, meaning, we take every aspect of your application into account. It is important for us to know that you will be a good fit in the UChicago community, and the only way for us to know that is if we look at how you respond to the application essays, where you spent your time in high school (did you babysit? were you a varsity athlete? were you caption of your debate team?), and, yes, your GPA and test scores, among other things.
