How Much Will It Cost to Attend UIndy?

Graduate student expense budget

As a graduate student, your financial planning should include consideration for tuition expense, which is typically the primary billable or direct charge you will incur from the University of Indianapolis. It should also include an evaluation of your indirect living expenses that may impact your ability to pay for your college education. The combined total of these direct and indirect expenses is referred to as your Cost of Attendance (COA). A student's COA, or expense budget for one academic year, is made up of five principle parts:

  • Tuition and fees (your bill)
  • Room and board (generally reflects off-campus living for a graduate student)
  • Books and supplies
  • Transportation
  • Miscellaneous expenses

Helpful tip:  You may be awarded aid to cover your tuition and fees (your bill) as well as a portion or all of the indirect expenses detailed within your individual student budget.
