1.1.4 How the University Reports Tuition and Fee Waivers

The Illinois Board of Higher Education's policy on undergraduate tuition and fee waivers limits the amount of undergraduate tuition waivers to 3 percent of the total available undergraduate tuition revenue. Each year the University of Illinois System must report regarding tuition and fee waivers granted in the previous fiscal year to the Board of Higher Education by September 15 (Public Act 92-0051).

Information on waivers, including selection criteria, application forms, critical deadline and award dates and administrative responsibilities, is available:
