Estimating Aid

The charts below contain award information for first-time freshmen who enrolled at UIC for the fall 2014 term. Awards are displayed by the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the FAFSA, residency (in-state/out-of-state) and living arrangement. The amounts listed are the MEDIAN award amount accepted within each category. Median is a mathematical result that indicates that one half of the group is higher and one half is lower. It should be noted that in some categories, particularly those for out-of-state, the number of students included are quite small and in some cases are zero.

Based on your estimated EFC, you can get a rough estimate of all assistance (federal, state, institutional and private) accepted by students with similar EFC's for the 2014-15 academic year. Please note that many students, for a variety of reasons, decided not to accept all the awards offered to them.

VERY IMPORTANT: The charts below are in no way a guarantee of future awards as there are numerous factors which change from year-to-year.
