Illinois College is Affordable

Did you know that Illinois College awards over $15 million dollars annually in student aid?

Through our $140 million endowment, one of the largest per student endowments for a school our size, we are able to offer competitive tuition cost and generous scholarships while still providing an exceptional educational experience. In fact, Illinois College offers one of the lowest tuition rates among nationally recognized private colleges and universities in the Midwest.

Ninety-eight percent (98%) of students receive financial aid in the form of grants and scholarships that do not need to be repaid. Because of that, families from a wide variety of income ranges see the value of investing in an Illinois College education. For more information, please contact the Office of Financial Aid or your admission counselor.  New students who would like to estimate expenses should use our Net Price Calculator.

Financial assistance received is based on both merit (academic preparation) and financial need. Below is an example of financial aid awarded last year.
