Admissions

At the Master of Science in Financial Mathematics (MSFM) program, we are addressing a rapidly changing industry by providing full-time students with an accelerated, five-quarter curriculum. Evening courses and flexible registration allow part-time students to progress at whatever speed fits their needs. Along the way, every student will develop relationships with our large alumni network, UChicago faculty, our industry partners, and dedicated career-development specialists. 

Application Deadlines

The application to the Financial Mathematics program will open in late September 2023. 

Round 1: January 12, 2023
Round 2: March 23, 2023

All applications that are complete and submitted by January 12, 2023 will have a decision released by March 10, 2023 or earlier, otherwise the application fee will be refunded. 

All applications that are complete and submitted by March 23, 2023 will have a decision released by May 12, 2023 or earlier, otherwise the application fee will be refunded. 

Deadlines are inclusive of applications and supplemental materials such as letters of recommendation and verified test scores.

There is no priority of admission given to Round 1 versus Round 2 applicants. We recommend non-US citizens apply in Round 1 to allow sufficient time for processing visa documentation. Offers of admission will be sent on a rolling basis via email through the end of May.

A fee of $90 is charged for each application submitted.
