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 international students in the MSPE Program.

Domestic Students

A limited, strictly merit-based tuition scholarship fund is available for U.S. citizens who meet the University's Illinois residency requirement. 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. See the Graduate College Tuition Waiver Guide.
