Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

2.70 Average Rating
Heartland is extremely low in regards to cost compared to a 4 year school that's for sure! However, This does not lessen its value as an academic institution. Some of Heartland's teacher are employed by ISU as well so I consider it to be a really good deal! It's kind of like going to a 4 year school and getting the education you would there but for way less money and in most cases, a smaller environment.

The college gives a student the education he or she needs in order to go further in his or her education or to just further it from an high school education. This is also a great choice because it saves a college student so much money and they get the same education students at Universities get.
