    The increase means an in-state student would pay about $302 a credit hour, while an out-of-state student would pay twice that. Graduate students would pay about $342 a credit hour, while law students will pay $651.

    The change means an incoming freshman from Illinois who's taking a full load of classes would pay about $9,100 a year, excluding fees, room and board.
