Section 1

Financial Assistance

International Students

The University of Illinois Board of Trustees has designated the MSPE Program as a cost recovery program. Because of this, the University of Illinois is not permitted to offer any financial aid to students in the MSPE Program.

Domestic Students

A strictly merit-based tuition scholarship fund is available for Illinois residents who are U.S. citizens. Contact the MSPE office for more information.

Tuition and Fee Waivers

Since the MSPE Program is a cost recovery program, students are not eligible to receive tuition and fee waivers except statutory waivers. For example, MSPE students may not hold waiver-generating appointments (e.g. teaching, research, or graduate assistantships), receive stand-alone waivers, or receive employee waivers.
