  • + 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)

Indiana Wesleyan is a high academic Christian centered campus. I value the professors, students, and everyone here on campus. I have learned so much already my first semester here.
Brandi from Maria Stein, OH
This is an amazing place. I feel very lucky to be able to study here. My professor' s are very accommodating.
Dutchboy
I feel more at home at IWU than I do in my own house with my parents. The people at this school are the most authentic, kindest, and fun people you will ever meet. Just being on the campus, you can feel God's favor for the people who embody faithfulness, self control, gentleness, and love in every area.
