Keeping an Indiana University education affordable in both the short and long term is essential for our students’ success and for the well-being of their families. To that end, we’ve worked to keep tuition costs low and increase the amount of financial aid available.
We’ve also launched initiatives designed to help control student debt levels.
This multifaceted financial literacy program provides students with the knowledge they need to make smart financial decisions. Beginning in the fall of 2013, all incoming students will be required to take an online financial literacy course. A peer counseling program is also in the works. In addition, all IU students are encouraged to complete the interactive learning modules available on the MoneySmarts website.

Set to launch in the fall, this exciting new program provides juniors and seniors who are on track to graduate in four years with a financial award that offsets any increase in tuition and fees for their final two years. Because this is a pilot program, only students who have achieved junior (60 hours in two years) or senior (90 hours in three years) status by Fall 2013 will be eligible. It is a university-wide program, so students from all seven campuses can qualify.

Indiana House Enrolled Act 1348-2013 requires that public higher education institutions in the state provide degree maps to all new first-time, full-time students beginning fall 2014. It also provides an important new guarantee for students: Follow your map and register during priority registration, and you are guaranteed a space in the courses you need or else the institution must provide the course for free in a future semester (unless they can provide you with a revised map that includes the course in a later semester but still allows you to graduate on time).
