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.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + 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)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.04 Average Rating
I'm an out-of-stater, so tuition can get a little pricey, but even so, I could not even fathom leaving IU. I just can't picture myself anywhere else.
Alicia from West Chester, OH
As I mentioned before, Indiana University has a lot of offer academically and socially. One will not only graduate with a great degree, no matter what they major in, but they will be set up with contacts and networking skills that will benefit them throughout their life.
Farihah from Munster, IN
Discounts at food courts and c-stores. There are so many academic help sessions and programs that we are able to use just because we are students at IU. We are paying for an education might as well use the resources provided.
Michael from Westfield, IN
Let's see...if you live in the dorm, you get pretty much everything. Included in the tuition is room and board, transportation with the buses which run all day, you get to use the printers anywhere on campus, use computers and technology, rent books from the library, use the academic services (which are GREAT, by the way). There are sooo much more, but those are a few of the basics. For in-state students and out-of-state students, no matter what, it's an amazing deal.
Carmen from Mooresville, IN
I am from out of state, so the tuition is a bit pricey, especially in times like these, but so far it has been very worth it. If you are going for the music school, it is especially worth it simply because of the opportunities you can get here working with the faculty and other students. It may seem expensive when you're applying, but they have a wide range of scholarships that are often times automatic, so if you have good grades or other things that qualify you for scholarships you may find that it's not really as expensive as it seems at first.
Alana from San Francisco, CA
IU is expensive, let’s be honest. That’s why if you are reading this and you are a high school senior, I recommend applying to as many scholarships as possible, starting now! However, IU does give you a lot of bang for the buck. I have found awesome advisers here that I cannot say enough good things about, the professors really do care about your education, the variety of classes is so huge that you will want to take them all, and the social scene is booming! Also, the meal points here work great because you get 60% discount on every meal you buy. And we have these great little convenience stores (c-stores) where you can use your meal points to buy medicine, cleaning supplies, or a late-night snack, and still get 60% off! You also get access to both gyms on the campus, the school and public buses; you get to check out all kinds of movies here (for free!). There is the world-famous Lilly Library, an art museum, even an Observatory! There is HPPLC (Health Professions Pre-Law Center) where there are advisers to guide you through the process of being a pre-law and pre-med student. You have the opportunity to take classes in the Kelley School of Business, Ernie Pyle School of Journalism, and Jacobs School of Music. You have it all, it seems like. But the only way you get the bang for the buck is if you take advantage of such resources.
An IU Lover :Maria A. from Indianapolis, IN
Indiana University does cost a little more than some schools in the state, but it is totally worth it! IUB has great programs that are all included in tuition that other schools never offer. IUB also offers great scholarship opportunities as long as you look for them.
Gabrielle from Cincinnati, OH
IU is worth every penny spent. You get the complete college experience along with an outstanding education. Their schools all have amazing placement rates so you know they can help you find a job once you graduate.
Jennifer from Indianapolis, IN
I pay in-state tuition, so it is definitely worth the money. IU has many great programs to choose from. There are many programs available to students that are included in tuition. Some examples are the bus system, career development center, and the gym facilities.
