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 three 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.

This program offers students a significant discount on summer classes. Indiana residents get a 25 percent discount, and nonresidents receive the equivalent reduction on their tuition. Students can take classes at any IU campus and easily transfer them to their home campus for credit. By taking advantage of the discount, students can save money and stay on track to graduate on time. The site will be updated with 2013 information very soon.

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.
