Fees by Semester

Registration Agreement

Once you register, IU reserves specific class space for you and commits resources to provide the instruction you have selected. By registering, you assume the responsibility for paying course fees or properly notifying IU when you decide not to attend. Your registration is not cancelled for nonpayment of fees. If you decide to cancel your registration, you must notify Student Central on Union.

Credit hour fees for tuition are based on residency classification, career (class), program, and selected courses.

  • All fees are approved by the Board of Trustees, usually in mid-May, and are subject to change without notice by action of the Board.
  • Tuition costs are not discounted for children of alumni or for families with multiple students in attendance.
  • IU Bloomington does not have a reciprocity agreement with surrounding states.
