Tuition Rates for Visiting Students

Your tuition rate is determined by the following factors:

  • Range Tuition – UIC assesses tuition based on ranges of total credit hours for the entire summer, regardless of whether you enroll in the 4-week session, the 8-week session, or both.
  • Residency – If you are unsure whether you qualify for in-state tuition, read the university’s Residency Requirements or contact the Office of Admissions at (312) 996-4350 to speak with a Residency Specialist.
  • Non-Guaranteed Tuition – UIC guarantees tuition rates for degree-seeking students. As a non-degree student, Summer Session Only students pay the Non-Guaranteed rate.

If you have questions regarding your tuition, contact the Registration Help Line at (312) 996-8600.

Fees and Assessments

Every student is charged a set amount of fees. Assessments are determined by the number of credit hours you take. An itemized list of these rates are provided in the Tuition & Fees Table for Summer Session Only Students and the explanation of the tuition and fees page describes the services supported by fees and assessments.

In addition, please note:

  • Lab Fees Some courses may also require you to pay lab fees. Check the “course information” section when you search the course schedule to see if the course you are interested in requires a lab fee.
