The non-refundable application fee amount is determined by your citizenship and/or visa status. Payment may be made online via credit card. Your application cannot be submitted until the application fee has been processed.
Certain domestic applicants (University of Illinois Civil Service Staff, Academic Professionals, Faculty, Employees of Allied Agencies, or applicants to designated programs, such as Project 1000, McNair Scholars, Big Ten Academic Alliance FreeApp) may be eligible for an application fee waiver or exemption. If you are eligible for a fee waiver, choose the appropriate waiver in the "Application Information" section of the online application. Unfortunately, unless the applicant is covered by one of the waivers described above, the application fee will not be waived.
