BOT approves tuition hike; UIS remains among most affordable

Tuition at UIS will be $3,607.50 per semester for full-time freshmen and transfer students enrolling for the first time in summer or fall 2008. The U of I Board of Trustees voted to approve the 2008-2009 rates at its meeting in Urbana today.

While the new rate is $427.50 more per semester than that paid by new students last fall, it is guaranteed not to increase for four consecutive years after the student's initial enrollment. Illinois' public universities implemented a guaranteed tuition plan for all undergraduate students in 2004.

Even with the increase in tuition, UIS remains one of the best educational values in the state, ranking in the middle among the 12 public universities in terms of tuition rates. Read more>>
