Tuition & Fees

IU Bloomington’s costs are just one part of the equation

Earning an IU degree will take a big investment of time, brainpower, and, of course, money. But you’ll graduate from a university that’s respected worldwide, with a degree from one of our highly ranked programs. And we do a lot to manage costs and keep your return on investment high.

That’s why publications like Washington Monthly, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, and Fiske Guide to Colleges have recognized our excellent value for the cost.
