Online summer of 2020

The latest result of IU Fort Wayne’s continuous review of the COVID-19 situation is simplification of the summer tuition and fee assessment for our Online Summer of 2020.

We are making 2 changes to our Online Summer 2020 tuition and fee charges that we want to make you aware of. 

  • While all classes for this summer semester will be taught online, we are waiving the associated distance education fee of $30 per credit hour   

  • IU Fort Wayne is bundling tuition and other mandatory fees into a fixed price per credit hour for undergraduate students, eliminating the guess work and making it easier to see your costs

    • Limited program and course fees may still be applicable  - Check out the Online Cost Calculator to prepare for your selections

As the situation continues to develop, we are committed to changing our processes to meet your needs, as well as setting the stage for your success at IU Fort Wayne.  We look forward to seeing you online this summer!
