    Non-Tuition Fees (FACTS)

    Lab has partnered with FACTS Management Co. to manage your non-tuition fees, e.g., Lab After School, field trip, athletic fee, bus, meal plan etc.   These charges will be directly invoiced, managed, and collected by FACTS.

    Invoicing
    Should you incur a non-tuition charge from Lab, you will receive an invoice from FACTS that gives you the option to choose the payment method that works best for you with each payment.

    Making a Payment
    FACTS allows you to make payments online from your bank account, credit card or by mail with a check or money order. There will be a convenience fee added to your payment if paying by credit card.

    How to Claim Your Online Account

    PowerSchool

    PowerSchool is a distinct system used by the Schools to capture and provide a wide array of information on our students. Academic information, contact information, and demographic information are all stored in PowerSchool and used by the various offices in educating our students. It also provides parents and guardians with progress and grade reports, teacher comments, and attendance information.

    Student Records Requests

    Current Students 
    The Schools need permission from the parent or student to release records. If the student is younger than 16 years old, a parent signature is required along with detailed instructions as to which records are to be sent. Those instructions should include the name and address of the recipient. Explicit instructions to release test scores are required if you wish to have copies sent along with copies of academic progress.

    No fee is charged to current students.

    The Schools only provide official copies of records from school to school. Records given to students or parents are unofficial.

    Faxing, emailing, mailing, or provision in person are all acceptable methods to request transcripts.

    Former Students
    If you are a former student requiring a copy of your records, please write the Office of the Registrar and include a $10 records fee made payable to "University of Chicago Laboratory Schools".

    **Please note, if you are a graduate of the College or any division of the University of Chicago, please contact the University of Chicago Office of the Registrar at 773-702-7891 for instructions. 

    Fulfillment
    Depending on the time of year, it can take anywhere from three business days to a week to fulfill a request. We send transcripts via First Class mail which can take several days depending on the location. Rush requests can be accommodated, however the Office of the Registrar cannot promise to fulfill emergency requests.
