Your surroundings
You’ll live in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, blocks from Lake Michigan, the Magnificent Mile, and acres of public parks. Get discounts on many city attractions with your student ID. You can gain urban ministry skills as you serve in churches, youth ministries, rescue missions, schools, inner-city ministries, and more.

Your free tuition
Your full-time undergraduate education at Moody is already paid for! You’re only responsible for room, board, and textbooks. You can get financial aid from grants, federal loans, scholarships, veterans benefits, and even payment plans to help you pay as you go.

Your major
You can choose from more than 30 undergraduate majors, so you’ll graduate ready to enter your chosen field. Prepare for the future with solid biblical instruction. Get practical training and ministry experience that looks great on a résumé and helps you get a job.

Your professors
Your faculty mentors bring a wealth of academic knowledge and ministry strategies to the classroom. Learn from professors with years of academic and practical experience. No matter what your major is, you’ll be challenged and supported academically and spiritually.

Your free time
You can enjoy many activities at Moody, including intercollegiate basketball, cross-country, soccer, volleyball, and intramural sports. Maybe you’ll join Moody’s nationally ranked debate society, a musical ensemble, the student newspaper, the yearbook staff, the improv cast, Puente (Latinoclub), Kesher (Jewish club), or one of the many other student groups.
