Tuition and fees
Estimating student tuition and fee costs
IUPUI’s tuition and fee estimator helps you estimate a student’s tuition and fee costs based on factors such as residency, academic program, and number of credit hours. You can also view a chart of tuition and fee costs for the current academic year or search the master fee list to find all the fees that apply to a student.
Using the employee tuition benefit
Indiana University offers a tuition benefit to eligible employees, former employees with IU retiree status, and former employees receiving long-term disability benefits.Learn about the tuition benefit
Office of the Bursar
The Office of the Bursar manages IUPUI’s financial matters, including student bursar accounts and fee remissions.
The Bursar External Upload (BEX) allows departments to post transactions directly to a student’s bursar account in the Student Information System (SIS). In order to use BEX, departments must be authorized by the Office of the Bursar. Individual users need:
- Documented approval from their department head
- An IU computing account
- Access granted by the BEX administrator
For more information, contact the Office of the Bursar’s systems team at email@example.com.
Bursar transactions and the monthly accounting feed
Transactions from SIS bursar accounts are transferred to departmental income and expenses accounts once a month during the accounting feed. Specific accounting feed dates can be found on the University Budget Office website.
In the Indiana University Information Environment (IUIE), the accounting feed detail report provides detailed information about accounting transactions by institution, account number, and object code. The report is updated two days after the accounting feed. If you do not have access to the report, you can submit a request to view it.
From a business process perspective, departmental fee remissions are the same as an external sponsor arrangement. To initiate a fee remission to pay tuition and other fees for a student, you must submit a financial voucher indicating what portion of the student’s tuition and fees should be charged to the fee remission account. To request a fee remission "account" complete the form below.
The IUPUI Office of the Bursar will do the following:

The IUPUI Office of the Bursar will create a new third party contract (TPC) based on the new item type that pulls from the specified GL/sub account number. This new contract number will be provided to the department.
*SIS SF IU Department TPC Request Page access
If there isn't a department staff person with SIS SF IU Department TPC Request page access, the IUPUI Office of the Bursar will provide training before authorizing access to the page.
