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

3.53 Average Rating
IUPUI is perfect if you aren't wanting to be buried in loans for the rest of your life. I'm getting my degree from the IU School of Physical Education & Tourism Management. If I would have gone to IU Bloomington I would have had to come up with at least $13,000 more than the cost of attending IUPUI. I was also able to cut down my tuition cost through IUPUI scholarships. IUPUI administers over $8 million in institutional financial aid and scholarships every year! Included in IUPUI's tuition is the use of academic support like the Math Assistance Center, Bepko Learning Center, Speaker's Lab, Writing Center, and many more.
Lauren from Indianapolis, IN
even though i'm out of state and have to pay a lot, i really like it and do not regret my decision, otherwise i wouldn't be spending all this money to be here. also, i enjoy it so much that i am going to stay here for graduate school.
Sara from Shawano, WI
Great education for an affordable expense. The knowledge you acquire at IUPUI will stick with you indefinitely.
Chanlar from Indianapolis, IN
i've been given so many opportunities with hands on learning, internships, and leadership training that i would have never gotten anywhere else.
sarah from south bend, in
with iupui, you get the best of both worlds from indiana university and purdue university. depending on studies, you get an actual degree from either university. also, iupui students can use either schools resources.

LTS from Indianapolis, IN
When you graduate from IUPUI you graduated with either a degree from Indiana University or a degree from Purdue University for almost half the price of Indiana University and Purdue University. IUPUI also offers numerous scholarships, including ones for having good grades in high school.
Deonna from Fishers, IN
IUPUI is worth every penny. It is always something going on on campus, IUPUI have brought many well-known speakers to the campus, and it is and has been just an enriching experience
Ian from Gary, IN
IUPUI is not the cheapest university and it is for from the most expensive. I would say one year's tution without room and board would be around $6,000.
