The University of Chicago Graham School aspires to be the front door of the University of Chicago. Our open enrollment courses represent this ideal offering rigorous academic study on a range of topics to individuals outside of traditional academic programs. Our students are united by their passion, curiosity, and real-world experience. As these courses are designed to cultivate curiosity, no grades or academic credit are assigned.

Continuing a tradition of outreach that began in 1892, when the first classes on our Hyde Park campus opened, open enrollment courses extend the intellectual growth and ongoing research of the University to the City of Chicago to local communities and beyond.
