Graduate Aid

Financing your University of Chicago education, complicated as it may seem at first, is a matter of straightforward choices. In Graduate Financial Aid, we focus on counseling graduate students as they navigate these choices in order to best finance their education. We strive to educate both prospective and current graduate 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.

Biological Sciences Division

Crown Family School of Social Work,
