Cost of Attendance

When considering the cost of college, it’s important to look at the value of the education you will get. Illinois State consistently ranks as one of the top 100
best values in public colleges, according to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine.

The chart show total Cost of Attendance (COA). Your financial need for financial aid purposes is equal to the COA minus your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

Please note, many of the costs below such as books and supplies, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses, are not paid to the University, but to the seller or provider of the service. Also, room and board for off-campus and commuter students is paid by the student directly to the landlord, property manager, or family member. For detailed information regarding tuition, please visit Student Accounts.

Some courses may include material fees. Please consult the University Catalog to see if a materials charge is included for a specific class.
