U of I System Approves Tuition Increase
If your student is eyeing the University of Illinois, prepare to pay a little more. School trustees unanimously approved a tuition increase for in-state students starting this fall.
Tuition at the flagship campus in Champaign will increase $198 a year. Chicago campus students will pay $174 more per year. And in Springfield, tuition is going up about $157 a year for UIS students.
Remember, this is only for incoming students.
Housing costs are also increasing. Champaign students will pay almost $10,000 a year to stay on campus, while Springfield students will pay the most of all three campuses for room and board.
