Part 5. Registration Charges
§ 3-501 Tuition Assessment
(a) Students are assessed tuition on the basis of their college and curriculum of enrollment; residence classification; and credit range determined by the number of semester hours for which a student is registered. There is a tuition surcharge for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in certain curricula. In addition, certain degree programs have specifically determined tuition charges. Information is available at the Records Service Center, 901 West Illinois Street, Urbana, (217) 333-0210.
(b) Credit ranges for tuition and fee assessment purposes are:
|Range I||12 hours or more||9 hours or more|
|Range II||6–11 hours||6–8 hours|
|Range III||1–5 hours||3–5 hours|
|Range IV||0 credit||0–2 hours|
(c) The residency classification of students for admission and tuition assessment is determined on the basis of information given on the admission application and other credentials. Students who desire to change their assigned residency status must file a petition according to the procedures and within the time limits set forth in the regulations governing residency. (See §§ 3‑901 to 3‑904.)
(d) Students enrolled in the Veterinary Medicine Professional Program are assessed a single tuition rate for each of the four years of the professional curriculum; tuition is not prorated over the traditional four ranges since the professional curriculum requires a full course of study each term.
(e) Students enrolled in the Law Professional Program (JD or LLM degrees) are assessed a single tuition rate for each of the three years of the professional curriculum; tuition is not prorated over the traditional four ranges since the professional curriculum requires a full course of study each term.
