Qualifying for In-State Tuition FAQ

You can find more detailed information on residency and qualifying for in-state tuition through University Academic Programs and Services.

If you can answer "Yes" to the following questions, you may be eligible for in-state tuition. You’ll need to submit our Residency Affidavit:

  1. Did you reside with your parents while attending a public or private high school in Illinois?
  2. Did you or will you graduate from a public or private high school in Illinois?
  3. Did you or will you attend school in Illinois for at least 3 years as of the date you graduated from high school or received the equivalent of a high school diploma?
  4. If you’re not a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, will you provide the University of Illinois with an affidavit stating that you’ll file an application to become a permanent resident of the United States at your earliest opportunity?
