  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
ISU has a large campus, with a lot of degree programs available. Most of the buildings are recently built and they have coffee shops all through campus with food and drinks. ISU is in a smaller city, Terre Haute, with a fairly low crime rate.

Indiana State University is a great college for everyone across the globe.
All my classes have been personal enough that I get the attention that I need and still do not stick out.
Everyone that I have met since I have been on the grounds has jumped at the opportunity to help each other.
