Fall 2018 Tuition and Fees Information


The SIU Board of Trustees (BOT) approved most tuition and fee costs for the 2018-2019 school year at their February 2018 meeting.  The cost of the Student Insurance Fee was approved at their April 2018 meeting.


What are the new Tuition Costs for Students for Fall 2018?

Incoming SIUC domestic undergraduate students who start Fall 2018 will pay an uncapped tuition rate of $321.25/hour.1  The state of Illinois and SIUC policies concerning guaranteed tuition mean that continuing or re-entering domestic undergraduates who started Fall 2017 will still pay $315.00/hour, while those who started Fall 2016 will still pay $303.30/hour, both rates being uncapped.1  Those domestic undergraduates who started Fall 2015 will still pay $294.50/hour, those who started Fall 2014 will now pay $294.50/hour, and those who started Fall 2013 will still pay $280.50/hour, all of these rates being capped at 15 credit hours per semester.1

Most incoming, continuing, and re-entering graduate students will pay $469.50/hour as Illinois residents, with those students who started Fall 2016 or later having their tuition uncapped.1  Also, Illinois resident students pursuing an MS degree in Physician Assistant Studies (MSPA) will continue to pay a capped graduate student tuition rate ($469.50/hour) plus an uncapped MSPA tuition surcharge ($418.00/hour).

JD students in the School of Law will see a resident tuition increase of 2% from 2017-2018 rates.  MD students in the School of Medicine will see a resident tuition increase of 3%.

International undergraduate students – as well as non-resident (domestic and international) graduate students – will be subject to paying tuition rates that are 2.5 times those noted above.  The non-resident factor for JD students is 1.5 times, while that for MD students is 3.0 times.


What are the new Mandatory Fee Costs for Students for Fall 2018?

On-campus fees have traditionally been assessed separately, most as per hour fees and a few as flat (fixed) fees.  Starting Fall 2018, nearly all of them will be consolidated into a General Student Fee of $117.00/hour that is uncapped.2  Undergraduate students will continue to be separately charged the $3.00 Student-to-Student Grant flat fee, which is refundable if the student submits this form to the Registrar's Office by the deadline noted on the form.  Undergraduate and graduate students will also continue to be separately charged the Student Insurance Fee, which is refundable if the student is able to demonstrate duplicate medical insurance coverage.3

Similar on-campus fee consolidations will happen for School of Law and certain School of Medicine students as well, though their new per hour rates will be capped at 15 hours per term.

Off-campus (and online) fees have traditionally been assessed separately, most as per hour fees and one as a flat (fixed) fee.  Starting Fall 2018, most of them will be consolidated into a General Student Fee of $72.60/hour that is uncapped.4  Undergraduate students will continue to be separately charged the $3.00 Student-to-Student Grant flat fee, which, as noted above, is refundable.

Specific amounts related to tuition and fees for SIUC undergraduate and non-undergraduate students for Fall 2018 will be in the calculators on this web site in the future.  The first bill for Fall 2018 charges will be produced on Monday, July 16.




1 Most students enrolled in the College of Business will also pay a differential tuition surcharge of 15% on top of the noted tuition figure.

2 This General Student Fee will continue to allow on-campus students access to the Student Rec Center, the Student Health Center, the Saluki Express bus service, and athletic events.  It will also continue to give them free access to an attorney to help them navigate personal legal problems.  And it will continue to provide for student RSOs, the student-led Green Fund, upgrades and maintenance to campus facilities and the campus computer networks, and other services and obligations necessary to support SIUC's mission and goals.

3 The amount of the Student Insurance Fee is based on actual market rate pricing by the vendor and is determined by plan enrollment, previous plan claims history, and medical inflation.  The actual amount of the Student Insurance Fee for Fall 2018 will be $775 per semester.

4 This General Student Fee will continue to benefit off-campus and online students by providing for course design and development, startup costs, instruction and administrative support, and the necessary technological and other infrastructure to support course development and delivery for these distance learning courses.
