Affordable excellence

Because we’re public, we’re more affordable than many colleges. In addition, IU South Bend offers scholarships, grants, and financial aid to further lower your costs to attend.

Professors, not teaching assistants, conduct our classes, and many professors use students to help in their research projects.
