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.
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.
