*Online students also are responsible for an $19-per-credit-hour library and information technology assessment, which helps to cover the cost of the online education infrastructure on which the interactive courses are run. This assessment amounts to $76 per course. Note: The Online Master of Engineering in AI and Machine Learning is a Full Cost Recovery Program and is not eligible for tuition waivers by University of Illinois employees.
Because all courses in the online Master of Engineering degree are 4 credit hours each, the tuition for any one course (in U.S. dollars) is $3,584. Therefore, the total cost for one online course is $3,660 with library and IT fees included.
Tuition bills come directly from the University about three to four weeks after classes have begun.
