Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan Qualify for Resident Tuition Rates

Indiana students are not the only ones to receive an affordable resident tuition at Vincennes University. VU is pleased to offer resident tuition for students who are residents of Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan. This applies to both part-time and full-time enrollments. And since eligibility is based on residency, there is nothing more students have to do to receive this great tuition discount!


About These Numbers

  • These numbers represent 1 semester (15 credit hours) of 100 & 200 level courses at Vincennes University.
  • Resident tuition amount applies to those students who are residents of Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan.
  • Room and Board are based on a 19-meal plan in Morris, Godare, and Vigo residence halls. See VU Campus Housing website for more details
  • Books/supplies will vary each semester. Many general education books are available for rent. We also offer e-textbooks for download. See the Old Post bookstore website for details.
  • Miscellaneous cost is based on the student activity fee per semester. As well as a required parking pass for those parking on campus each semester. 

Once you have enrolled in classes, your actual expenses for these categories of costs may be either higher or lower than these estimates. In calculating your actual cost of attendance, we also add program expenses, if your major requires such things as tools that you must purchase or course/lab fees that all students in a particular major must pay. You can get more information about these program specific costs from your academic advisor.

Federal student aid (FSA) regulations require us to use cost of attendance to help calculate your financial aid eligibility. Financial aid need, as defined by FSA, is cost of attendance minus EFC (the result of your FAFSA) minus scholarships and other forms of assistance.

Be aware that "cost of attendance" is not the same as your bill for any given semester or year. Once your financial aid package is completed, you will be notified by letter or email.
