You will also need to have a transcript (from the registar's office) along with two letters of recommendation sent to professor Longan.  Finally you need to obtain approvals indicated by signatures from your advisor, the Dean of Students (in Kretzmann), and the Dean of your College.  If your application is accepted by the VU Urban Studies program it will be forwarded to the ACM where it will be reviewed.  Students interested in studying in Chicago should contact Professor Michael Longan with questions. You may also contact the Urban Studies Program directly at with your questions. Students should submit application materials and arrange to have letters of recommendation sent to Professor Longan as far in advance of these deadlines as possible.
