The independent student newspaper at the University of Illinois since 1871


June 30, 2023

In a study by the College Board, it was found that the average tuition at a four-year public university in the United States was $10,940 during the 2022-23 school year. 

For the 2023-24 academic year, the base tuition rate at the University will be $12,254, a 1.9% increase from 2022-23

Although this number is publicized as the University’s tuition rate, some academic colleges charge up to $5,000 dollar differential payments on top of tuition due to additional costs associated with running their programs.

According to Vicky Gress, the University’s associate chancellor and vice provost for budget and resource planning, differential funds flow directly to the specific program’s budget.

Base tuition contributes to the University’s unrestricted budget, which funds faculty salaries, administrative costs, facilities and services, some research-related costs, centrally-awarded financial aid, campus insurance and other campus-wide programs.
