Graduate Aid


Financing your University of Chicago education, complicated as it may seem at first, is a matter of straightforward choices. We focus in Financial Aid on counseling graduate and professional students as they navigate these choices in order to best finance their education, informing both prospective and current students of available funds, including student loans and Federal Work-Study. We are also responsible for processing student loans and Work-Study for students in the graduate and professional schools and divisions, conducting entrance and exit student loan counseling for all students who receive federal student loans, and authorizing disbursements of federal student loan funds.  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 a loan borrower when they either become alumni or leave the university.

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

Biological Sciences Division   Divinity School Graham School
Humanities Institute for Molecular Engineering Physical Sciences Division
Harris School of Public Policy Social Sciences Division Social Services Administration
