Student Fee Information

2024-2025 Academic Year Financial Information and Agreements

In-State Student Fee Information

IMSA’s in-state student fee structure is based on the National School Lunch & Breakfast Programs. IMSA assesses this fee on a six-tier sliding scale depending on a student’s total family income and the number of family members in the household.  The annual student fee will be the same for all three years the student attends IMSA. Reduction in the annual fee is determined each school year, as described below. 

Any Illinois family that wishes to apply for a student fee reduction must complete the National School Programs Application annually. IMSA will not utilize or disclose personal information received from this form except to determine a student’s fee reduction. If you feel that your family’s special circumstances merit consideration of financial aid in addition to whatever fee reduction your completed National Programs Application may qualify you for, please submit a written statement outlining these circumstances along with your application. The IMSA Office of Business and Financial Services will contact you as quickly as possible regarding your student fee reduction application status.
