University of Illinois Announces In-State Tuition for Out-of-State Students


Students from states that neighbor Illinois will soon pay in-state tuition rates to study at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s College of Nursing.

On Monday, the college announced that its in-state tuition rates will be extended to students from the bordering states of Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri, or Kentucky who enroll in its Doctor of Nursing Practice program at UIC’s Quad Cities, Peoria, Rockford, Springfield, and Urbana campuses.

“UIC offers the highest-ranked public DNP program in Illinois or any of its bordering states,” Kelly Rosenberger, director of the College of Nursing Rockford Regional Campus, said in a statement.

“The change in tuition rates will make that program more affordable to students who live within driving distance of one of our campuses — who might even work on the Illinois side of the border — but whose home addresses just happen to be in another state.”

The decision will save out-of-state, full-time students approximately $6,359 per semester and aims to increase the number of professional students enrolled in the 12 different nursing specialties that the school offers.

Both current students and incoming freshmen will be eligible for these new tuition rates, which will take effect in the fall of 2019.
