Tuition and Financial Aid

The IUPUI Office of the Bursar maintains current tuition and detailed fee information, including a Tuition and Fee Estimator. They also accept several methods for payment designed to make paying for college as convenient as possible.

The Office of Student Financial Services provides current information for costs of attendance for full-time, resident and non-resident graduate students.

International students’ costs of attendance are slightly different and include manadatory health insurance. Please consult with the IUPUI Office of International Affairs.

Financial Aid

As a master’s or Ph.D. student, you have access to a wide range of financial assistance, including scholarships, grants, loans and work-study that help reduce costs. We encourage you to investigate and pursue all options for which you may be eligible.

The School of Informatics and Computing offers assistantships and fellowships to qualified Ph.D. and master’s students. To be automatically considered for such support, you must submit the following by January 15 (Ph.D. students) or April 15 (master’s and certificate students):

  • A completed application with application fee;
  • Your GRE score from within the past five years.

Direct financial support from the School of Informatics and Computing is reserved for qualified, full-time students matriculating in the fall semester. Direct financial support is rarely available for students matriculating in the spring.

To learn more about financial aid opportunities from the university or external sources, such as the federal government, please consult the IUPUI Office of Financial Aid and the IUPUI Graduate Office.

For information about specific financial resources for international students, please contact the IUPUI Office of International Affairs.

Financial Aid for Non-resident Online Certificate Students

The HCI Graduate Certificate program offers financial aid to qualified applicants who are considered non-residents (for tuition purposes) of the state of Indiana. This financial aid would reduce the tuition portion of their bursar fees (the cost per credit hour) to the equivalent of the Indiana resident rate. This financial aid is only available to US citizens and US permanent residents.

A qualified applicant is a US citizen or permanent resident who has completed a bachelor’s degree, with at least a 3.0 undergraduate GPA, based upon transcripts from all academic work who submits a complete application which includes a personal statement, resume, and three letters of recommendation through the online application. Please include a request for consideration of this financial aid in your personal statement.
