Admissions Updates

Regular Decision Deadline

Our Regular Decision deadline (January 1) has been extended to January 8 for students who have been impacted by severe weather in recent days. You do not need to ask for permission to take advantage of the extension. If you have been impacted by severe weather, you may submit your application by January 8 at 11:59 p.m. (your local time).

As long as the applicant submits their portion of the application by the deadline, it’s okay for other materials arrive later. The materials checklist will appear in your UChicago account in Mid-January.
