Tuition increase for some UI students


Tuition increase for U of I campuses

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Some students at UI will be paying more for their education.

The Board of Trustees approved increasing tuition for incoming in-state freshmen. Tuition will go up almost 2% for students at UIUC and UIC campuses. Base tuition for in-state undergraduates will go up by $218 to $12,254 a year.

Out-of-state and international freshmen, will pay an extra 1.8% next fall in Urbana-Champaign, 1% in Springfield and 3.5% in Chicago.

This is the first increase for students in six years. The increase will help with a faculty hiring initiative started this year. Tuition will go up by one percent for the Springfield campus.
