Estimate your tuition and fees

IU’s tuition and fees tool allows you to forecast the cost of credit hours and mandatory fees for your ILS graduate education.

To be considered full time, you must enroll in at least nine credit hours. Anything less is considered part time, which is an option for all students. You can also choose to enroll in more than nine credits if it better suits your goals.

Credit hour fees are different in every school. To get the best estimate of how much your tuition will cost each semester, search tuition rates for both of your dual-degree programs.
