Estimated 4 Year Cost at Published Tuition

At the current published rates, an estimated total tuition, fees and living expense price for a 4 year bachelor's degree at Indiana University Bloomington is $83,432 for students graduating in normal time. This methodology for estimating the 4 year cost is a straight multiple of the most recent reported annual total cost and does not factor in tuition increases during the time you're in school. It also assumes you receive no grant or scholarship aid and pay the full list price.

A potentially more accurate but less conservative estimate of a degree cost can be made by using the school's annual $10,324 in-state net price as the basis. Applying this cost over 4 would estimate the cost of a degree at $41,296**

If you end up on the "five year plan" and need an additional year to graduate, your five year cost could be as high as $104,290 or $51,620 using an average net price.
