Cost & Financial Aid

An education that repays you over and over

From low tuition to a wide range of scholarships, IUPUI and the School of Liberal Arts make a top education affordable.

You’ll graduate with a respected Indiana University degree and, more important, a liberal arts education you’ll use your whole life—so you’ll be prepared for success.

Humanities and social science graduates earn only slightly less than their peers with degrees in professional fields upon graduation from college, and by mid-career the earnings of humanities and social science graduates surpass those of graduates with professional degrees., “Why critics are wrong about liberal arts degrees”

Tuition, fees, and other costs

As a public university, IUPUI has lower costs than many of its Indianapolis peers. And with so many options for on- and off-campus housing, you can find the best fit for your finances.

IU’s MoneySmarts program will help you make smart financial decisions. On its website, you can estimate what you’ll pay to attend IUPUI—including tuition and fees, room and board, personal expenses, and more.
