Every application received by UChicago is carefully reviewed several times and presented to a committee. The school considers the entire submission, not only grades, and requests students have a thirst and passion for knowledge and learning. It’s suggested that students use a UChicago account to apply.

For Early Action applicants, paperwork is due by November 1st with decisions made by mid-December. For Regular Decision, applications should be turned in by January 1st and will hear back by mid-March. All students must let UChicago know their intent by May 1st.

Students should include Completion of college-preparatory program, Recommendations, and a Secondary school record in every application, but none is also recommended. ACT Composite scores should be in the 33 - 35 range and the SAT Combined in the 1,510 - 1,580 range.
