Admission-based and Merit Scholarships

Freshman applicants for admission to IU East become eligible for Admissions-based scholarships when they submit an admission application by March 1st that meets academic criteria for the particular scholarship. Merit scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis and require a separate application. Since beginning freshman students are considered for admission-based scholarships immediately upon admission to IU East, they are urged to apply for admission as early as possible, preferably in the fall of their senior year in high school. Students meeting criteria for admission-based scholarships will be contacted once the admission process is complete and sent a notification of the scholarships for which they are eligible. They will also receive an application for merit and any other competitive scholarships available. Students can receive only one four-year admission-based or merit scholarship, the highest one for which they are eligible or selected.

Please note that tuition and fees for resident students at IU East for 15 credits of coursework per semester for the 2013-2014 academic year are approximately $6,786.78, depending on the courses taken. For updated information on tuition and fees please visit http://www.iue.edu/bursar/tuition/
