UIUC PhD Funding Scenario

Code 23-19

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, 

I'm getting a stipend, tuition waiver and partial fee waiver for a PhD program at UIUC. Does anyone have any idea about the sort of money I'll have to pay for the remaining fees? They've also mentioned something about assessed fees. I mailed the office, but they directed me to a link which didn't elaborate much. I also wanted to ask what's with the 50% assistantship offered by UIUC for the PhD program?

I'll be pleased to hear back from anyone.

50% assistantships are incredibly common if by 50% you mean 20 hours a week. If you work more than that, then there are benefits implications which most universities try to avoid. I'd ask current students to get a better sense of the fees you'd have to pay.
