Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
i feel that i am getting a great education and lots of experieces for my money. the cost is high but financial aid is very available.
Samuel from Brighton, IL
Though small the campus has the beauty usually associated with a large school. A new athletic center was just built a few years ago, which includes not only facilities for the sports teams but also weight rooms, open gym times, and an indoor pool complete with hot tub open to everyone. You get personalized attention not found at a state school coupled with chances to get involved which many small schools simply don't have the resources for.
Sarah from Virginia, IL
Tons of research opportunities, workout facilities, classrooms, and town locations to definitely get the best offering for success!
Alyssa from Galesburg, IL
student activity is great very, laid back, every one knows everyone on a first name basic. lunch ladies are awesome and sweet.
Geeleeyaw from Chicago, IL
I love this school. The best part for me is that if I ever need any assistance I can always contact my professors. They give you their phone numbers and home addresses. This is a smaller school so everyone here is like family making it really easy to get help with any problems that you are having.
Mikel from Cambridge, IL
Illinois College can be a bit on the pricey side, but I feel like I'm getting all the possible bang for the buck out of my college experience. Also, there are a lot of merit-based scholarships that help students meet their financial needs!
Hailie from Genoa, IL
While no education is cheap, the price of a liberal arts education is a little more than a larger university, mainly because it is a private institution. The educational value, however, is incomparable. I firmly believe that my education was more well-rounded and in-depth than any state school. There are also more opportunities for scholarships and grants (i.e. that don't need to be paid back!) at a smaller school.
