  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. 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  Senate Bill 3222 allows students whose 4 years have expired to remain in the next most recently admitted cohort for 2 years.  After the four year guarantee, students move to the next most favorable cohort rate in year 5, stay there for year 6.  See and search for SB 3222.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Tuition differentials are applied to non-degree students in major specific non-degree program codes.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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."
