FINANCIAL AID

Every student is eligible for financial aid. However, the options are different for US citizens, US permanent residents, and international students. Chicago Booth does not grant scholarships to Evening MBA and Weekend MBA students.

Student loans for US Citizens and US Permanent Residents

There are three loan programs available to Evening MBA and Weekend MBA students.

Direct Unsubsidized Loan - The Direct Unsubsidized Loan is available to US citizens and US permanent residents who enroll in two or more courses each quarter. The Direct Unsubsidized Loan, which is not credit-based, carries a fixed interest rate of 5.41 percent and an annual borrowing limit of $20,500.

Direct PLUS Loan - The Direct PLUS Loan is available to US citizens and US permanent residents who enroll in two or more courses each quarter. The Direct PLUS Loan is a credit-based federal loan that can be used to supplement the Direct Unsubsidized Loan. The interest rate is fixed at 6.41 percent and there is a 4.2 percent origination fee. Students can borrow up to the full cost of attendance (set by the financial aid office) minus all other financial assistance.

Private, credit-based alternative loan - All students can apply for a private, credit-based alternative loan. Students can borrow up to the full cost of attendance (set by the financial aid office) minus all other financial assistance. The terms of private loans are set by the lender.

Student Loans for International Students

Chicago Booth is committed to providing financing opportunities for all students regardless of citizenship status and offers a loan program to international students with no US cosigners. International students who have US cosigners have multiple private loan options. More detailed information regarding these programs will be made available via the admitted students website upon admission to the program.

Please Note (OFAC Sanctions): In accordance with regulatory guidelines, the following applicants are NOT eligible for Chicago Booth’s loan program for international students with no US cosigner—applicants from Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)-sanctioned countries; and applicants identified by name, or related to or connected with anyone on the OFAC Specially Designated Nationals List. All such applicants will be required to make alternative financing arrangements.
