Banded tuition is defined as charging a single-tuition rate for enrollment within a specific range of credits. Banded tuition is designed to help students graduate on time (in four years) and reduce the cost of their education.
Undergraduate students enrolled at an Indiana University campus will pay one rate for their basic tuition when taking between 12 credits and 18 credits at one IU campus. Students who enroll in fewer than 12 credit hours will continue to pay the per credit hour rate for tuition. Students enrolled in 19 or more credit hours will pay the banded tuition rate up to 18 credit hours plus the per credit tuition rate for each credit over 18. The banded tuition rate will be different for in-state and out-of-state residents.
Students who are enrolled in on-campus degree programs can include online courses in the 12-18 credit tuition band. Students who are enrolled in online degree programs pay for courses by the credit hour and are not eligible to pay the banded tuition rate. For more information concerning online degree programs, you may access the IU Distance Education Fee Policy.
