Tuition and Fee Notes

Tuition for Online Programs

Tuition for programs designated as Online is assessed per credit hour. Note that Online per credit hour tuition is not applicable for students in an on-campus program who have simply enrolled in an online course.

Refer to the Registrar's website for online program tuition assessments.

Expand this section to view important tuition and fee policies.

  1. Payment Obligation: Registration via the UIC portal, my.UIC.edu, or any other recognized method of enrollment obligates a student to pay all applicable tuition and fees for the term. By registering for classes, you assume academic and financial responsibility for confirmed courses resulting from your registration and responsibility for any additional costs that may result from the University's efforts to obtain payment.
    Your obligation remains unless you officially cancel your enrollment by the refund schedule deadlines.

  2. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice any time prior to the first day of instruction.

  3. See the Registrar web site for online tuition rate information. Go to registrar.uic.edu and select Financial Matters.

  4. All full time students, both degree-seeking and non-degree, are assessed a $140 transportation fee for the CTA U Pass. Full time is defined as 9 or more credit hours for graduate level students.

  5. The Academic Facilities Maintenance Fund Assessment (AFMFA) is assessed to all students. For less than 12 hour full-time enrollment, the AFMFA will be based on enrolled credit hours pro-rated according to range calculations.

  6. In order to generate the resources to improve the learning environment, a Library and Information Technology Assessment is assessed to all students. For students at less than full-time enrollment the assessment is pro-rated according to tuition range calculations.

  7. CLINIC INFRASTRUCTURE ASSESSMENT.  In order to generate the resources to improve the learning environment, ensure the availability of contemporary technology, and support clinical patient care learning experiences, the Clinic Education Fee has been replaced with a Clinic Infrastructure Assessment (CIA).  The CIA is assessed to students in the DDS, DMD and IDDP programs at the rate in effect for each specific group/class at time of matriculation.

  8. College of Medicine Disability Insurance Fee is assessed once a year in fall and covers the cost of disability insurance which ensures a student has a source of income should they become disabled during medical school.  In the event a medicine student loses their ability to practice medicine in the future, this insurance also provides income to offset the financial loss.

  9. International Student Fee. $80 in fall and spring; $40 summer. The university has approved an international student fee for all international students attending UIC. The fee will allow the Office of International Services to continue to provide essential services, upgrade technologies used for student advising, increase programming options, and host cultural events to increase and expand upon the “UIC Experience."
