About these numbers

We're showing you the COA for a full academic year (fall and spring semesters). Cut these numbers in half to figure out the cost of a single semester. Tuition and fees outlined here are based on 12 to 18 credits per semester.

Your actual costs for room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses will vary based on:

  • The number of credit hours you take
  • Whether you're an undergraduate or graduate student
  • Whether you're an in-state resident
  • Your personal choices
  • Your travel habits

Your cost of attendance may differ from these estimates and will not be what you will owe the university. Based on your enrollment, IUPUI will bill you each semester for tuition, fees, and housing (if applicable). Visit the Student Center in One.IU for your specific billing information.

Herron offers financial aid and scholarships to students based on academic achievement, portfolio submissions, diversity, and financial need.

Estimate your tuition and fees

All figures above are based on the 2020–21 academic year rates for full-time students and are only an estimate. Indiana University's Board of Trustees revisits tuition and fee rates each July.
