Notes

  1. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice any time prior to the first day of instruction
  2. Students admitted to online programs will be assessed $675 per credit hour "eTuition."  eTuition is assessed to students admitted into formally recognized online programs (with program codes ending in "U").  The program of admission will control tuition and fee assessment. 
  3. In fall and spring semesters, an additional $3.00 will be assessed for the Student-To-Student Assistance Program (refundable).  Not assessed in summer.
  4. All full time students are assessed a $95 transportation fee for the CTA U Pass.  Full time is defined as 12 or more credits hours for undergraduate students.  Full time is defined as 9 or more credit hours for graduate students.
  5. The transportation fee will be assessed to degree and non-degree students in the categories listed in note 4 above.
  6. Undergraduate degree seeking students entering the University in Summer 2004 or after are provided a four year tuition guarantee. Students who entered in Summer 2004 through Spring 2005 ("2004 Cohort") are now placed in the cohort of students who entered Summer 2005 through Spring 2006 ("2005 cohort").  The 2004 Cohort will continue to move to successive guaranteed cohorts each year.  The purpose of the undergraduate guaranteed tuition plan is to provide a high degree of certainty about tuition costs for students and families. The plan applies to all undergraduate students enrolled in a baccalaureate degree program on one of the three campuses of the University of Illinois. The plan treats every student as part of a cohort defined by the date of entry to the University. Each cohort is guaranteed an unchanged tuition schedule for four years.  Please note that fees are subject to change annually.  For details on guaranteed undergraduate tuition see http://www.vpaa.uillinois.edu/Policies.
  7. The Academic Facilities Maintenance Fund Assessment (AFMFA) is assessed to all undergraduates except those in the 2005 guaranteed rate tuition cohort. AFMFA is $270 per semester for full-time students enrolled for at least 12 credit hours. For less than full-time enrollment, the AFMFA will be based on enrolled credit hours pro-rated according to range calculations.
  8. In order to generate the resources to improve the learning environment, a Library and Information Technology Assessment of $200 per semester is charged to new undergraduate, graduate, and professional students enrolling in Fall 2008 and after. For students at less than full-time enrollment the assessment is pro-rated according to tuition range calculations.
