To make it easy to see exactly how much your degree will cost, view the interactive tuition calculator below.


Once you have an idea of how much your education will cost, it's time to look for ways to fund your education. You have a lot of options when it comes to finding financial aid to help you attend IUPUI. Before you borrow money, make sure you understand every type of aid available. You may be able to avoid loans altogether!

First step: Complete the FAFSA

Our students come from all over the world to study with world-class faculty and to prepare for careers as leading public health professionals and researchers. No matter where you're from or what background you have, there are options for helping you fund your education ... and we're here to help!

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the first step students take toward funding their education. 

When you submit your FAFSA, you’ll automatically be considered for a variety of state and federal financial aid programs, including grants, work-study positions, and loans.

The priority deadline for submitting your FAFSA is March 10.

If you have financial need, you may qualify for one or more grants. Grants are known as “gift aid” and don’t have to be paid back. While you may automatically be considered for a wide range of grants when you complete your FAFSA, some grants may require separate applications. So it helps to also search for grants on your own to increase your chances of getting the funding you need.

Grants for your grants

Already have a grant? You may be able to get supplemental grants for your grants.

IUPUI students who have a 21st Century Scholarship, Frank O’Bannon Grant, or Federal Pell Grant may be eligible to receive an IUPUI Pledge Grant.

For example, the 21st Century Scholarship provides up to four years of undergraduate tuition. The IUPUI Pledge Grant can supplement your 21st Century Scholarship to help with other expenses outside of tuition such as room and board, fees, text books, and other eligible expenses.

The Office of Student Scholarships can help you find and apply for the right scholarships—money for school that doesn't have to be repaid that can help cover the cost of your education and minimize your debt. There are countless scholarships available to students of all backgrounds, but it’s your responsibility to find them. Remember, you cannot be considered for a scholarship if you don’t apply.

Accepted IUPUI students can apply for admission-based, competitive, and major-specific scholarships offered by the university. The first step to being considered for any of these scholarships is to submit an application for admission to IUPUI.

Once you have applied for admission, you'll be eligible to create your IU computing account. You can then apply for scholarship opportunities by completing one general application.

IUPUI Diversity Scholarships

Graduate students at IUPUI have access to several types of aid including scholarships, tuition remission, fellowships, research assistantships, teaching assistantships and more.

Graduate Scholarships

The Fairbanks School of Public Health offers several scholarships for undergraduate and graduate public health students. Applications for these scholarships must be submitted separately. 

We highly recommend that you look for scholarships outside of the university. You can find scholarships from many sources in the private sector such as businesses and civic, community, and religious organizations.
