Beginning with the Class of 2023, the UChicago Empower initiative will increase access to UChicago in a variety of ways. In addition to admissions policy enhancements, UChicago will guarantee free tuition for families with incomes under $125,000* per year (with typical assets). Families earning less than $60,000* per year (with typical assets) will have tuition, fees, and room and board covered by financial aid.

*These income figures are minimum funding levels for the Empower Initiative. Families with income that does not fall within these ranges may still be eligible for need-based financial aid.
