There’s good news and bad news in the latest round of tuition increases at the University of Illinois.
Tuition is going up on all three campuses, including Springfield, by one-point-seven percent for students entering college this fall. But that represents the smallest increase in nearly 20 years. The hike approved by trustees will increase the annual tuition rate at UIS by more than $157, to nearly 92-hundred-50 dollars a year.
The tuition hike only affects new students this fall… under state law, students pay the same tuition for all four years of their undergraduate education. Housing costs are also going up at all three U of I campuses.
