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

3.80 Average Rating
Really great school, easy campus to figure out and get around, and for a great price that can fit most family's budget.
Shannon from Bloomington, IN
This school is SO cheap compares to other schools yet I do not know why because we have the nicest and BIGGEST dorms! The rec center is a huge advantage as well and offers Personal trainers to keep off (or lose) that freshman 15.
Allison from Coatesville, IN
The tuition here is actually the cheapest in the state of Indiana, but the education is still great!
Sarah from Fort Wayne, IN
The education and overall academic setting and experience are well worth the money. USI has several nationally ranked programs... you cannot ask for a better education than that for less money! Almost all of the activities offered on campus, such as the movies, are free, which offers nice, cheap entertainment to students who are watching their dollars and cents. The dorms are VERY nice and worth the cost as well. However, only freshmen are allowed to stay in the dorms. Other students who wish to live on campus may sign up for on campus apartments, which include a small kitchen. While these apartments are extremely convenient, they are not very nice. The college pays students to paint and clean them over the summer... and you can tell. There is paint all over the ceilings, mirrors, woodwork, and carpets. The woodwork is broken off in chunks and the carpets are pretty stained and filthy. Appliances such as water heaters and dishwashers act up quite a bit, but the maintenance crew is very good about fixing them in a timely manner.
Stacie from Lebanon, IN
USI has a good price tag. It is decently priced school. Not to mention you can get a good degree for a good price.
Heather from Oblong, IL
I considered private schools and some of the larger colleges such as Purdue and believe that University of Southern Indiana gives you the best value. All the private schools were twice as much and after speaking with a few of my friends they ae considering transferring.
Katelynn from Kokomo, IN
This is the cheapest state university in Indiana, and the teachers are great and the campus is modern and beautiful.
