Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success

The University of Chicago is proud to be an inaugural member of the new Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success. The Coalition comprises over 90 of America’s leading colleges and universities, and is dedicated to making the college search process more accessible for students across the nation. A suite of online college planning tools is now available—completely free of charge for all high school students. Those applying to UChicago for fall 2017 can use the new Coalition application, which will be available in July of 2016. More information on the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success can be found at The University of Chicago will also continue to accept the Common Application and the Universal Application.

Visit UChicago this Summer

If you’re thinking of visiting UChicago, this summer could be the perfect time. Nothing beats summer in Chicago—the city’s 77 neighborhoods are abuzz with street festivals, Chicagoans and tourists alike flock to the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan, and Chicago truly lives up to its motto: “City is a Garden.” Miles of green space abound, notably our campus, which bursts into bloom. Whatever else you choose to do on your visit, we hope to see you on campus for one of our daily tours and information sessions or a Friday Summer Information Day!
