Graduate Aid

Financing your University of Chicago education, complicated as it may seem at first, is a matter of straightforward choices. In Financial Aid, we focus on counseling graduate and professional students as they navigate these choices in order to best finance their education. We strive to educate both prospective and current graduate and professional students on responsible borrowing and help them make the best decision for their situation given the funds available to them. Our mission is to ensure that UChicago graduate students understand the financial aid process when they are in school and are aware of their responsibilities as loan borrowers when their time at the University has been completed. 

The Graduate Financial Aid Office serves the financial aid needs of the following academic divisions: 

Biological Sciences Division  Divinity School Graham School
Humanities Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering Physical Sciences Division
Harris School of Public Policy Social Sciences Division Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy and Practice
