Estimated Cost of Attendance

Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees are direct costs and are billed to the student each semester. The tuition and fee amounts used in the cost of attendance are based on an average enrollment of 30 semester hours per academic year, the transportation and parking fee ($145 per semester), the university services fee ($30 per semester), the student activity fee ($100 per semester) and the counseling service fee ($55 per semester).

It is important to remember that the University will bill tuition and fees for the actual number of credit hours a student is registered for. The 2021-2022 credit hour rates are as follows: Indiana resident undergraduate $274.96 and graduate $409.77; non-resident undergraduate $667.89 and non-resident graduate $802.71. 

RN to BSN Online - $297 per credit hour (and is based upon 24 credit hours per academic year)

MBAO - $430 per credit hour (and is based upon 12 credit hours per academic year)

All other graduate programs are based on 18 credit hours per academic year.

*Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice by action of the Board of Trustees.

Housing and Food / Room and Board

Room and board may be either direct costs or indirect costs depending on whether or not you live on campus. If you are living on-campus the housing and food allowances are based on a double-room, 4-person unit in University Housing with the Blue Eagle Meal Plan. If you are living off-campus, either with parents or in your own home or apartment, your housing allowance is based on regional averages, and your food allowance is based on the Blue Eagle Meal Plan.

If you contract for University housing and/or a meal plan, you will be billed for the semester rental (and meal plan if applicable) in addition to tuition and fees.

Books and Supplies

Books and supplies are indirect costs. The books and supplies allowances are based on full-time enrollment and average book costs. Your books and supply expenses may vary based on the courses that you are taking.

Miscellaneous / Personal Expenses and Transportation

Other expenses include allowances for miscellaneous/personal and transportation expenses. These expenses are indirect costs that you will not be billed for but are paid by you as they occur. Indirect costs may vary greatly but are based on what are considered reasonable, but modest, costs (gas, clothing, toiletries, etc.) estimated for financial aid purposes to determine your cost of attendance / financial assistance budget. Loan fees are included in miscellaneous/personal expenses, if applicable.
