Autumn Quarter Application Deadline
(August 1, 2018 for international students requiring visas)
Step 1: Apply Online
You will need the following for the online application:
Step 2: Submit Transcripts
You must submit official transcripts to:
The University of Chicago Graham School
1427 E. 60th Street Chicago, IL 60637
Transcripts must be submitted by the end of the first week of matriculating as a GSAL or RS student. Failure to do so may result in the inability to register for courses and disciplinary action.
Step 3: Interview
The GSAL Associate Director and team members will carefully review your application and, should you meet the general application standards, will invite you for either for a telephone or in-person interview. The interview is a time for you to share your main objectives and goals for participating in the GSAL or RS programs and an opportunity for the interviewer to help contextualize your academic performance thus far, and make collaborative plans for your academic future.
Applicants will be informed of the admissions decision by the end of the interview.
Admissions decisions are rolling and applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Late applications will be reviewed for admission to the following quarter. Late applicants are advised to contact GSAL admissions staff.

I hadn’t realized when I first read about it online that it was actually exactly what I was looking for. The classes I took were the very ones I would’ve taken had I been accepted. ... I attended every class, every TA session, and even the MScA capstone presentations. The GSAL program allowed me to confirm that the University of Chicago was really where I wanted to be and it did that in a way that far exceeded my expectations. I’m only more excited to begin the MScA program now.
