MPCS Application Requirements


Admission to the University of Chicago Masters Program in Computer Science is based on careful review of all sections of the applicant’s application.

All applications must include the following:

Our application process is completed entirely online. All of your materials should be submitted electronically through the online application. We do not accept additional materials sent on paper.

Unofficial copies of documents may be submitted if electronic versions of official copies are not available. Official copies of all transcript documents will only be required upon accepting an offer of admission. Note that any material differences between an official transcript and the copy you submit with your application may result in the withdrawal of the offer of admission.

We expect all applicants to have at least a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) from an accredited school in order to apply for admission.

Your application is not considered complete until all items above have been received.

The application fee is automatically waived if you are a current University of Chicago student or an alum of the University of Chicago. Please make sure to mark that you have previously enrolled and add your UCID when prompted.
