Funding Graduate Study in History at UIC

Information about Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees are set by the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois. The tuition and fee schedule at UIC is fairly elaborate so it is important to understand what your charges will be, as well as your payment obligations. This information is available from the Office of Admissions and Records. Please be aware that a tuition-and-service-fee waiver does not cover all fees.

Financial Support

UIC offers three types of financial support for graduate students in history: (1) Teaching Assistantships; (2) Tuition and Fee Waivers; and (3) Departmental or University Fellowships and Awards. All three are discussed below.  Financial Aid Forms are available from the following sources:
