2016/2017 Tuition & Fees Per Term (On Campus)

Undergraduate Guaranteed Tuition Plan for Illinois Residents

Under the Guaranteed Tuition Plan, the tuition for undergraduate students who are Illinois residents is assessed at a per-credit-hour tuition rate during the term they first register and the same tuition rate will apply for each of the following consecutive eleven terms (fall, spring, or summer). If the undergraduate student has not yet completed their undergraduate degree at Governors State University after the initial 12 consecutive terms then tuition will be assessed at the guaranteed rate of the year following the students initial enrollment. This new rate will then be assessed for a maximum of 6 consecutive terms (fall, spring, or summer).

For the 2016-2017 academic year, per-credit-hour tuition rates for undergraduate students who are Illinois residents are:
