Information Collected and its Use

Our noncredit course registration and all application forms require users to provide us with contact information such as name, email address, mailing address, and similar identifiers. Sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, is not stored after purchase. Social security numbers are requested in our credit application forms, and are stored in protected University servers.

We may use your personal information to provide you with information about the Graham School’s activities, via email or catalog mailings. We may also share your personal information with other University of Chicago departments for University-related activities.

Your personal information may also be included in the University of Chicago directory. These directories are only available to the University community, including alumni, students, faculty, and staff, and are used for ease of contact among different departments.

If you participate in a partnership program, your contact information may be made available to our partner organization for the duration of your study.

We will not distribute your personal information unless required by law or a contract for official Graham School business. It will be used only for approved Graham School activities.
