Thank you for your interest in the Divinity School!
We look forward to meeting you and learning more about your plans for graduate study in religion. On these pages you will find information about the application process and eligibility, tuition and financial aid, the intellectual and social lives of the school, and how to connect with us in Chicago or on the road. Use the traditional menu to the left, or the visual quick links below, to navigate.
Join Our Mailing List. The best way to learn more about the Divinity School and stay current on recruitment events and application updates is to register for our admissions announcements list. Registering means you will receive periodic updates about recruitment events in Chicago and elsewhere, as well as relevant notifications about application procedures and timelines. Importantly, we will never share your information with persons beyond the orbit of graduate admissions at the University of Chicago.
Apply to the Divinity School. PhD students apply in December—MA and MDiv students in January—for matriculation the following autumn quarter. (The Divinity School accepts AMRS applications on a rolling basis, and AMRS students may begin study in autumn, winter, or spring quarter.) The Committee on Admissions and Aid considers applications in January and February, and releases admissions decisions and financial aid offers at the beginning of March. To open an application, click on the icon to the right, and you will be directed to the registration page for the online system.
Visit Us. The Divinity School welcomes and encourages prospective students to visit campus. The best way to get a feel for what it is like to live and work in the Divinity School community is to drop in on the conversation in progress. Prospective students may observe current classes and speak with current students, faculty in their area of interest, and an admissions representative. Clicking on the visual link to the right will take you to our visit page, where you will find information about scheduling an in-person visit or a virtual admissions appointment via Skype. Alternatively, you may want to proceed directly to the Campus Visit Request Form.

If you have questions regarding admissions—including the application process and eligibility—or about which degree program is right for you, browse our Frequently Asked Questions pages or contact John Howell, Associate Dean of Students, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (773) 702-8249.
