Student Textbook Program
At other institutions, textbooks are over and above tuition and vary widely from semester to semester but not at Illinois College. At Illinois College, books are included in the cost of tuition through our rental program and delivered to you so you can budget expenses more effectively.
*Because you may not be able to travel home during school breaks, Illinois College accepts requests for students with a home address outside 500 miles to stay on campus. Unlike many other colleges in the United States, our out-of-state and international students may stay on campus for $15 day. Please see our campus student handbook, the Illinois College Blue Book, for more information.

*Health insurance and personal transportation are estimated expenses.
Enrolling international students will need to certify that they have financial support to study in the United States by completing and submitting the Certificate of Finances Form. This must be done before we can issue Form I-20. Students must also demonstrate a reasonable expectation of continued support for the duration of their academic program.
