We Are Still Accepting Applications for Fall 2022 Classes

(But you have to hurry!)

Planning to apply for the Fall 2022 semester? There’s still time to submit your application! However, we have limited on-campus housing available, so we encourage you to get your completed application to us as soon as possible.


If you’re unable to relocate to Chicago this fall, we have several other ways you can begin your Moody education:

  • One option is our First Year Online Program (FYOP)! An alternative to in-person classes, the program allows you to participate in our hyflex model for selected courses.
  • You also have the option to earn your entire degree online, not just the first year. Our online format gives you the flexibility to study anywhere in the world and whenever it’s best for you. Choose from an eight-week format, self-paced format, or a combination of the two!
  • Or become a commuter student at Moody! Pay per credit hour and keep a full-time or part-time course load, whatever best suits your needs! As a commuter student, you have access to the benefits of Moody’s student activities and amenities while you live off-campus.

Whether you choose to live on campus or study online, your first step is completing and submitting your application as soon as you can!
