College of Business Differential Tuition – Effective Fall 2008 for incoming students


Starting in Fall 2001, the SIUC College of Business and Analytics (CoB)1 began assessing CoB majors2 a college technology fee.3

Starting in Fall 2008, this separate college technology fee began to be phased out and subsumed under the Differential Tuition surcharge (see next paragraph).  Consequently, going forward, most students are charged either the technology fee or the Differential Tuition surcharge but not both.4

Starting in Fall 2008, CoB implemented a Differential Tuition surcharge of 15% of applicable tuition for declared CoB majors2 that are new students (entering undergraduate or entering graduate students as of Fall 2008 or later).  The Differential Tuition surcharge is assessed at the applicable in-state or alternate tuition rate.  If students are charged the Differential Tuition surcharge, the college technology fee (see previous paragraph) is not assessed.4

Separately, starting in Fall 2008, CoB implemented a "Minor Program Fee" that is equal to 15% of 15 credit hours of applicable in-state tuition for declared CoB minors5 who are not paying the Differential Tuition surcharge.  This particular fee is applicable only for most new students (entering undergraduate students as of Fall 2008 or later).  Students who started prior to Fall 2008 are not assessed this particular fee.6  Students who are also CoB majors2 are not assessed this particular fee (since they are already paying the Differential Tuition surcharge).

For more details about the Differential Tuition charges, see http://www.siusystem.edu/board-of-trustees/legislation/appendix_a.html, Item 1, Section A, Note 5.  Please note that CoB graduate students in the online Master of Business Administration program are charged a unique tuition structure to which the Differential Tuition surcharge noted here does not apply.




1 The College of Business and Analytics was previously known as the College of Business.  Prior to that, it was known as the College of Business and Administration.

2 CoB undergraduate majors include Accounting, Business Analytics, Business and Administration, Business Economics, Finance, Management, and Marketing, as well as undecided and unclassified undergraduates enrolled in that college.  CoB graduate majors include Accountancy, Analytics for Managers, Business Administration, and Strategic Analytics.  Effective Summer 2021, due to the campus reorganization, undergraduate majors of Economics, HTEM, and Information Technology will be part of CoB, as will be graduate majors of Cybersecurity, Economics, and Public Administration.

3 This technology fee's charge was originally $4.58 per credit hour, later raised to $6.00 per credit hour starting in Summer 2004.  The charge was capped at twelve credit hours in Fall and Spring semesters and at six credit hours in Summer sessions.

4 Basically, those CoB students who started at SIUC prior to Fall 2008 will continue to pay the college technology fee (for as long as they are enrolled there), while those who started during or after Fall 2008 will pay the Differential Tuition surcharge.  Currently, only a small number of students still pay the college technology fee.  Students in Cybersecurity, Economics, HTEM, Information Technology, or Public Administration prior to the Summer 2021 campus reorganization that moved them into CoB will not pay the Differential Tuition surcharge or the college technology fee.

5 CoB minors include undergraduates minoring in Accounting, Business and Administration, Finance, Management, or Marketing.  Effective Summer 2021, due to the campus reorganization, undergraduate minors of Economics, HTEM, and Information Technology will be part of CoB.

6 Students in the minors of Economics, HTEM, or Information Technology prior to the Summer 2021 campus reorganization that moved them into CoB will not pay the Minor Program Fee.
