In 2001, full-time MBA students in the Class of 2002 adopted a policy of "grade nondisclosure" and procedures to affirm or reject this policy annually. This was a student-led initiative, and subsequent full-time MBA classes have reaffirmed this agreement.
This grade nondisclosure policy is not an official policy of Chicago Booth, however the faculty and administration have respected the policy. In keeping with this approach, Chicago Booth requests that employers refrain from asking students to disclose grades or academic honors during the recruiting process until a student has accepted a full-time, post-graduation employment offer.
In addition to this policy, Chicago Booth is bound by the Family Educational Right and Privacy Act which prohibits an educational institution from disclosing grades to external parties without explicit direction from the student.
