Calculating your cost of attendance

You can use the Illinois Cost Calculator to obtain an estimate of your tuition, campus fees and other estimated costs by answering a few questions or to compare program options.

When calculating your estimated expenses for the MSA, please note that you may take 8 credit hours in the summer, 16 credit hours in the fall and 8 credit hours in the Spring. This will help you calculate your expenses when asked "How many credit hours are you or will you be taking?".

University of Illinois Campus


Applicants offered admission to the program must submit a non-refundable deposit of $1,000 to reserve a spot in the program. This deposit will be credited to your tuition bill after the 10th day of classes in the summer.

International applicants: For financial verification purposes, international applicants who are admitted are required to verify funding for the first 12 months, including tuition and other estimated living expenses, with the Declaration & Certification of Finances Form. A list of additional living expenses is available at the Office of the Registrar


The MSA program offers a limited number of tuition remission scholarships to qualified domestic and international students who add to the academic quality of the program and diversity of the student body. These tuition remission scholarships are not limited to traditionally underrepresented populations.

Financial Assistance

Based on the way the MSA program was structured and approved by the University of Illinois Board of Trustees, we are unable to offer financial aid to international students. International students should be prepared to finance the entire period of proposed study from personal funds or from funds from other sources, as financial aid (in general) is extremely limited.

Visit the Office of Student Financial Aid to see about other ways to pay your education expenses.
