Student Services and Support
The University of Illinois College of Medicine has a commitment to provide students with the best possible services, support, and learning environment. While we apply the same overarching philosophy toward providing services and support to students, it will mainly be provided locally at each of the four campuses.

Tuition & Financial Aid
We understand that medical school is a very large investment that can seem overwhelming for potential students especially when looking at the potential cumulative debt by the time of graduation.
As a prestigious University and College of Medicine, we aim to recruit the best candidates for our medical school, so it is important for us to find ways to limit the potential debt burden and not have cost be an obstacle to a high quality education.
As a state institution, we have an in-state tuition rate that is lower than our private peer schools in the area.
Most students enrolling in the College of Medicine rely primarily on financial aid to fund their medical school education. Our Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) will work with students individually to try to make the process of funding their education as free from stress as possible.
In addition, starting with the class entering in the Fall of 2014, as part of our Residency Preparedness Initiative, we began offering a new Loan Interest Assistance Program. The program description and eligibility requirements for this program are detailed here for your review.

Due to changes in our curriculum, the criteria for AOA selection depends on the academic year of consideration.
For Fall 2018 AOA selection (i.e., 2019 graduates):
Since this involves the last M2 class of the Classic curriculum, pass/fail grading was still in place throughout the M1 and M2 years. Thus, there will be no selection for Junior AOA this year, or from this point forward.
Since M3 class will have had tiered grading in M1/M2; Senior AOA will be determined by the existing criteria.
For Fall 2019 AOA selection (i.e., 2020 graduates):
The M3 class, from the Classic curriculum, will undergo AOA selection by the existing criteria.
For Fall 2020 AOA selection (i.e., 2021 graduates):
Since this M3 class will be the first to complete the new Illinois Medicine Curriculum, the selection process for this class, and in each year going forward, will be conducted according to the new criteria.
