Pay for your degree as you go — each time you take a course, pay tuition for that course only. If a scheduling conflict arises, you are free to take a term off and you won’t be charged during that term.
The MBA remains one of the strongest credentials you can earn: in a recent survey, 81% of companies plan to hire MBA graduates this year.
Recently, the price of MBA programs have skyrocketed: costs can easily exceed $200,000. The University of Illinois — a historical land-grant public research institution founded in 1867 — is working to reverse this trend with this $22,000 MBA program.

We recommend you request this fee waiver before you submit your application.
