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

It's cheap compared to other schools in Pennsylvania.
Erin from Pittsburgh, PA
You get way more out of the school than you pay for. The tuition is significantly lower than expected for everything we are offered. From the living facilities to the professors, you are paying for a terrific place to be.

I am getting a top notch education for a fair price, vs. attending an out of state university and paying triple the costs.
Adam from York, PA
When I was considering IUP I attended an open house in the summer before my junior year in high school. I met the head of my department (Journalism) and when I had him as a professor this spring semester, he recognized me and worked with me to achieve the goals we had discussed nearly two years ago. That's what I call a dedicated professor.

Regarding my major, Music Education, IUP by far offers the best education for the money, by comparison to other colleges in Pennsylvania.
Jeremy from Monroeville, PA
iup is very inexpensive and very affordable.
Kianna from Philadelphia, PA
Great as a BEST BUY experience.
T from Indiana, PA
The tuition is very reasonable at IUP, that was one thing that put me to ease about going to school here. I know my brother is attending college this fall as well and the school he is going to is twice as much if not more than mine is. The only thing i will say is that the new on campus housing is expensive. Don't get me wrong it is extremely nice but pricey. I am living off campus this year and my rent and bills for 2 semesters is about the same or a little less than one semester of on campus living.

Coming to IUP will prove to be a great decision. Always make sure that you are getting your money's worth out of it, whether it be by joining clubs or finding your niche in another organization here at IUP.
Christine from Pittsburgh, PA
You can pay for your college at a decent cost and not have to worry about paying loans off for the rest of your life for the same education as someone going to a private university.
