Financial Aid Basics

Most students in our graduate divisions and professional schools finance their studies through a combination of resources: fellowships, scholarships, and assistantships from their graduate division as well as earnings from part-time work and student loans. For more information about divisional assistance, you should visit your respective Dean of Students and UChicagoGRAD websites. However, the financial aid office is here to assist you with your eligibility for loans and/or Federal Work-Study. The key lies in building a financial aid combination that is best suited to your current finances, the requirements of your degree program, and your aspirations and plans for the future. As you weigh your options, Financial Aid is ready to assist you in making financial decisions that correspond wisely with your circumstances and available to answer any questions you may have regarding student loans and Federal Work-Study.  

In this section, we have provided some basic information that can help you better understand the eligibility and enrollment requirements, types of funding available through the financial aid office, as well as additional policies regarding graduate financial aid at the University of Chicago such as receiving funds, adding or canceling funds, and leaves of absence.
