Viewing Responsive Documents

After being notified of availability, you may view responsive documents in the Office for University Relations in Chicago or in Urbana.

Response letters are posted on the University Relations public log of FOIAs filed with the University of Illinois.

Page Charges

Under 6(b), the University may charge fees reasonably calculated to reimburse its actual cost of reproduction.

The first 50 pages of a FOIA response are free, and any additional pages are 15 cents a page. For color copies or unusually sized copies, the University charges the actual cost of copying.

For documents provided on CD, the University charges for the cost of the media used. Documents may also be delivered by email at no charge.

Commercial requestors are charged 15 cents per page (after the first 50 pages). Requestors with no stated commercial affiliation are also charged 15 cents per page (after the first 50 pages).

Waived Fees for Media

Fees are waived for requests filed by members of the media.
