University of Southern Indiana

2014-2015 Cost of Attendance

Tuition and Fees
Tuition and fees are direct costs and are billed to the student each semester. The tuition and fee amounts used in the cost of attendance are based on an average enrollment of 30 semester hours per academic year.

When planning for your actual costs, it is important to remember that the University will bill you for tuition and fees for the number of credit hours you register for.

Housing and Food / Room and Board
Room and board may be either direct costs or indirect costs depending on whether or not you live on campus. If you are living on-campus the housing and food allowances are based on a double-room, 4-person unit in University Housing with the Blue Eagle Meal Plan. If you are living off-campus, either with parents or in your own home or apartment, your housing allowance is based on regional averages, and your food allowance is based on the Blue Eagle Meal Plan.

If you contract for University housing and/or a meal plan, you will be billed for the semester rental (and meal plan if applicable) in addition to tuition and fees.

Books and Supplies
Books and supplies are indirect costs. The books and supplies allowances are based on full-time enrollment and average book costs. Your books and supply expenses may vary based on the courses that you are taking.

Miscellaneous / Personal Expenses and Transportation
Other expenses include allowances for miscellaneous/personal and transportation expenses. These expenses are indirect costs that you will not be billed for but are paid by you as they occur. Indirect costs may vary greatly but are based on what are considered reasonable, but modest, costs (gas, clothing, toiletries, etc.) estimated for financial aid purposes to determine your cost of attendance / financial assistance budget. Loan fees are included in miscellaneous/personal expenses, if applicable.
