IWU vs. Indiana Independent Colleges

Room & Board

Compared to similar schools, IWU provides an excellent education at an affordable price. Almost all of our students receive financial aid and support from our team of advisors eager to help you begin and complete your college journey.

IWU vs. CCCU Schools

IWU’s tuition is $1,864 less per year than the average 2022-23 tuition of the CCCU member institutions in the Midwest.
IWU offers the most aid to families with incomes of less than $30,000 of all CCCU schools in Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.

The annual Council for Christian Colleges and Universities tuition study confirms that member institutions continue to offer an excellent value in comparison to other private four-year U.S. colleges. Not only are CCCU colleges less expensive, annual increases in tuition and fees are growing at a slower rate than other private four-year colleges.
