Admissions Updates

A Message to our Applicants

Over the past several days, many applicants have expressed concern about missing our January 2 deadline due to blizzards, flooding, power outages, or other extenuating circumstances that were out of their control. We understand these things happen and wanted to let you know that the UChicago application deadline has been extended to Monday, January 8 for any prospective students who may have been affected by circumstances out of their control. Please note: You do not need to request permission for an extension. If you have been affected, please submit your application any time before January 8.
