Paying Your Bill

Tuition for the 2015-16 Academic Year is $1,100 per credit hour (language classes are $550 per credit hour). For all new students (any program), a $500 matriculation fee must be paid at the time of your acceptance of admission. This fee will be applied toward your tuition balance for the first semester. For all students (including new students), the tuition balance must be paid by the beginning of the semester, as well as the student services fee ($200 for fall/spring semesters, $100 for the summer semester; language auditors pay $50 for the student services fee).

Tuition must be paid in full by the beginning of the semester, unless a prior arrangement has been made with IWP.
