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

3.17 Average Rating
IUN is cheep compared to many other schools. I have a little bit of financial aid, and don't have to take out any loans to cover the difference.
Stephanie from East Chicago, IN
Cheap compared to other schools but an amazing school to attend.
This school has a wide variety of classes and each one is worth the money. Not to mention you receive help when picking your classes.
Danielle from Chicago, IL
If you are living in Indiana this is a perfect in state school.
Juanna from Gary, IN
