UIC- Budget/Funding Situation


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

First post. I've reviewed the rules, hopefully I'm not doing anything too outrageous.

I was recently accepted to UIC's MS in biostatistics program. However, I've recently learned about the Illinois budget crisis, and how UIC as an institution is paying out certain scholarships in anticipation of them being reimbursed by the state at a future time. They've already had to layoff a fair amount of non-research staff.

Long story short, this is rather alarming to me. Would be curious to hear from any current students about how the budget crisis is affecting you. Assistantships and student employment are my main concern currently. However, any comments on the situation would be greatly appreciated.
