International students at UChicago come from over 100 countries and comprise 21% of the University’s student population. They are integral to the diversity of the UChicago community and provide essential perspective to all manner of campus conversations. As an international applicant, you will apply in the same manner as any other first-year applicant, with an additional English proficiency test requirement. Your application will be read in the context of where you attended high school, whatever your citizenship. The University of Chicago considers you an international applicant for purposes of financial aid if you are neither a U.S. citizen nor a U.S. permanent resident, regardless of where in the world you live and go to school.
