Tuition for the RN to BSN program is the same rate whether in-state or out-of-state. Tuition does not include textbooks and course materials. However, most courses use Open Educational Resources, which keep book costs to a minimum. The additional library and IT assessment fee provides you access to the entire UIC library online - you can browse through research articles, e-books and even access newspaper subscriptions.

  • $475 tuition per credit hour

  • $18 IT and library fees per credit hour

  • 30 credit hours

We offer multiple avenues to help keep UIC affordable

  • Guaranteed Tuition Rate

    Continuously enrolled students receive the benefit of guaranteed tuition throughout the entire program. The tuition rate will remain the same based upon the initial admission date.

  • Limited Textbook Costs

    Textbooks and course materials are limited. The program is actively updating all courses to rely solely on Open Educational Resources, which will soon eliminate textbook costs. For the few classes currently using textbooks, the Student Resource Center provides book information several weeks prior to the course start date so students have the opportunity to find the least expensive option.

  • Scholarships

    UIC’s College of Nursing sponsors numerous scholarships based on financial need, academic achievement and leadership.
