Illinois Residents Qualify for In-State Tuition

Vincennes University is pleased to offer a scholarship for students residing in Illinois.

The scholarship allows Illinois students to pay the same tuition rate as in-state students. The scholarship applies to both part-time and full-time students from Illinois. Students do not need to apply for the scholarship since it is based on residency.


Your own actual expenses for these categories of costs you have because you are a student may be either higher or lower than these estimates. 

In calculating your cost of attendance, we also add program expenses if your major requires such things as tools that you must purchase or course fees that all students in a particular major must pay.  You can get up-to-date information about these sorts of costs from your major academic department. 

Federal student aid (FSA) regulations require us to use cost of attendance to help calculate your financial aid eligibility.  Financial aid need, as defined by FSA, is cost of attendance minus EFC (the result of your FAFSA) minus scholarships and other forms of assistance. 

Be aware that "cost of attendance" is not the same as your bill for any given semester or year.  For example, VU does not bill you for transportation or personal expenses, but we can include reasonable amounts for these categories of expenses that all students have.
