Cost of Attendance

How much does it cost to attend IUPUI?

When you’re budgeting for your education, it helps to know what you’ll be paying. We’ve made it easy by breaking costs down for you with our standard cost of attendance (COA) estimate.

About these numbers

Your cost of attendance may differ from these estimates and will not be what you will owe the university. Our Net Price Calculator can help you estimate your financial aid awards and your costs. Based on your enrollment, IUPUI will bill you each semester for tuition, fees, and housing (if applicable) not already covered by your financial aid. Visit the Student Center in One.IU for your specific billing information.

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 student
  • Your personal choices
  • Your travel habits
