No Surprises

We assess your tuition and fees every semester, and send it to you in a statement via email, so you know in advance what you will be expected to pay.

Assessment is based on the number of credits that you take each term, so your costs can vary from semester to semester. Costs can also vary based on your academic program and the specific courses that you take.

Assessment for each semester occurs as follows:

  • Fall: late July
  • Spring: late November
  • Summer: late March

To ensure an accurate assessment, be sure to register for classes as soon as possible.

Billing Cycle

To help you plan and budget, please note that bills are issued monthly, on the third Thursday of the month. They are due on the tenth day of the following month. Billing for each semester begins as follows.

  • Fall: first bill available on the third Thursday of August and due on September 10.
  • Spring: first bill available on the third Thursday of December and due January 10.
  • Summer I and Summer II: first bill available on the third Thursday of April and due May 10.

For more upcoming deadlines, please visit the Office of the Registrar's Calendar.

Make sure you check your IU email account—that’s where we’ll send your billing notices and other official communications.
