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.

Kaleigh from Mishawaka, IN
The city of Fort Wayne has so much to offer spanning from sports venues, festivals, and theatrical productions. Each of these attributes make Indiana-University Purdue-University Fort Wayne a great campus to study at because you not only get a reasonably priced education but there are so many activities going on that you can never get bored.
Shelby from Fort Wayne, IN
Very affordable, and you can get a Purdue degree. The professors are mostly good and the opportunities are limitless. I would recommend getting off-campus housing by renting in a house or apartment. There is plenty of parking space on campus.
Nick from Fort Wayne, IN
This is a great, affordable school. It's located is such a convenient part of town. The professors are great and very helpful. If you are from the area and you are looking for an affordable school, this is a great place to go.

If you really want to join into the student life, take up a sport or a club because they give you so many more opportunities to make friends and have fun while on campus.
Joshua from Huntington, IN
No matter what you spend your money on, you need to spend it wisely but there is never anything that is below average when it comes to quality.
Michael from Fort Wayne, IN
yes it is,
Marques from New Castle, IN
The price is great. The campus is beautiful and well-kept. The new student housing buildings are the nicest looking apartments you will find in the area, not to mention, you get your OWN bedroom. No need to have a tiny dorm room that you share with a roommate. You even have the choice of living with your own bathroom. The choices for floor plans are great.
