Definitions for "Early action"
Early Action is for candidates who would like an admission decision in mid-December and a provisional financial aid assessment by early January. Freshman candidates must complete their applications by November 1 and transfer candidates must complete their applications by March 1. Students may apply to other schools if they wish. In other words, Chicago's early action program is non-binding; admitted students need not reply to the offer of admission until May 1 for freshmen and June 1 for transfers. International students may only choose Early Action if they are not applying for financial aid. Click here for more information on early action and deadlines.
