Cost Per Credit Hour for Programs Eligible for the Military Tuition Assistance Program

The Department of Defense requires all institutions to post on their website the derived “cost per credit hour” of eligible programs in order for our active military students to receive the tuition assistance benefit. Please note that this figure is provided solely to meet this requirement. The majority of academic programs at the University of Illinois at Chicago do not use a cost per credit hour calculation to determine tuition charges.
