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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. In this case, the financial voucher is an email sent to the Office of the Bursar’s sponsor team at email@example.com and should include:
- Student name and university ID number
- Departmental account number and object code covering the charges
- Authorized term or range of dates covered by the financial voucher
- Specific dollar amount authorized or the kinds of charges covered by the financial voucher
- Student careers receiving the remission (undergraduate, graduate, dental, law or medical)
- Is recipient a student academic appointee (SAA)?
- Will remission be awarded from a contract or grant?
- Is remission awarded based on academic achievement?
- Name, email address, and phone number of the department’s primary contact person
