    UIC is quite affordable for most considering all the grants that it offers. As for what you're getting out of UIC, you're getting exposure to many people from all over the world. You learn more about the cultures and can explore the city. Learn not just about the city of Chicago, but if all great cities and to help solve the problems.

    A world class educational that will not set you behind 40 years paying back student loans. Not only a great undergraduate program, but also a phenomenal graduate program; both of which at a great price. Not only that but all expenses are explained in their purpose, and even some are optional which can save you more money than expected.

    It is really cheap because it is a public university. Unfortunately, there is not as much financial aid for graduate students. There are really competitive fellowships, research/graduate assistantships, and a few scholarships.
