Cost of Attendance

We are committed to enrolling the most qualified students regardless of their ability to pay. We award federal financial aid for U.S. citizens and permanent residents in the form of federal loans. Currently about 80 percent of all Medill graduate students receive some form of financial aid. Learn more about financing your Medill education on our financial aid page.

Students in the IMC Online program are charged tuition on a per course basis. As a student in the IMC Online program, which is part-time, you have the option of taking one or two classes per quarter. You must be enrolled in at least two classes to qualify for federal financial aid.

While we award aid to meet the tuition charge, if you need to borrow additional aid for academic-related expenses, please notify Medill’s Office of Graduate Admissions and Financial Aid.
