Tuition & Fees
The best way to estimate how much graduate school at IU Bloomington will cost is by looking at last year’s average cost of attendance for full-time graduate students.
You can find last year’s average cost of attendance for full-time graduate students at Student Central on Union, IU Bloomington’s class registration and financial aid office.
The Office of the Bursar can provide the most up-to-date information on this year’s actual tuition and fees.
Tuition is subject to change and varies based on the degree pursued and the student’s residence classification. Graduate students are charged by the credit hour, with eight hours considered full time.
All IU students are also responsible for mandatory fees, which vary based on semester and full-time or part-time status. Besides tuition and fees, prospective graduate students need to consider the cost of room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses.
Tuition and fees make up a good portion of your cost for graduate school; however, if you can secure a fellowship or a Student Academic Appointment as a teaching or research assistant, many times these positions will pay for all or most of your tuition.
