Step 1: Determine your costs
Your costs will depend on several factors, including the degree program you choose and your residency (whether you’re an in-state or out-of-state student). In addition to tuition costs, there are some mandatory fees that all students must pay. Some degree programs and courses also have special fees for supplies, equipment, or laboratory use.

Tuition savings for nonresidents
The Midwest Student Exchange Program award allows legal residents of Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin to attend IUPUI and pay tuition at 150 percent of the in-state rate. The award reduces tuition for qualifying nonresidents from $29,806 per academic year to $13,462, resulting in a savings of about $16,344 per year.
The award will be available to Ohio residents starting with the fall 2018 semester.Learn about the award
Step 2: Explore financial aid and scholarships
You have lots of options for paying for your IUPUI education, including loans, grants, work-study positions, and scholarships.
IUPUI’s Office of Student Financial Services is here to help you navigate the process of finding and applying for financial aid. Your first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). When you submit your FAFSA, you’ll be considered for a variety of state and federal financial aid programs, including loans, grants, and work-study positions. The priority deadline for submitting your FAFSA is March 10.
