Prairie Promise

Introducing the Prairie Promise in Fall 2024! The Promise ensures that every qualifying student in Illinois benefits from the transforming impact of education. It covers the cost of any outstanding tuition or fees after the State of Illinois MAP Grant, AIM HIGH grant, and UIS scholarships and awards have been deducted. You can visit the Prairie Promise page for more information.

University of Illinois Springfield is committed to using the Principles and Standards of the College Cost Transparency Initiative(link is external) in our financial aid offer notifications.
