Cheapest Colleges in Indiana by In State Total Cost

If you're looking for an affordable university and you are a resident of Indiana these are the least expensive in state colleges to consider.

Keep in mind that affordable doesn't simply mean finding a school with a low published in state total cost. It's important to research the typical financial aid package offered by a school, the average net price actually paid and most importantly the quality of education you receive for your tuition dollar. Sometimes a school which appears cheap based on list price can be a poor relative value if it can't award competitive financial aid or doesn't offer a quality education. The methodology for the list below is solely a ranking on published in state total cost with no consideration of actual average price paid or academic quality of the school. Please see the CollegeCalc best value colleges in Indiana list for a ranking which considers school quality and net price.

Total cost may factor in an estimated off-campus living expense if a school doens't provide housing. This estimate may vary widely by college. To view a rank by academic fees alone please see our Indiana tuition ranking.

The most affordable four year colleges in Indiana are listed by one year's in state total cost list price for the 2013/2014 school year. Total cost includes tuition, room and board or estimated off campus living expenses, books and supplies and other fees.
