Enrollment in the IU Tuition Benefit Program
For IU High School (IUHS) courses, a separate IUHS Tuition Waiver Application must be completed before the student registers for classes. The fee waiver cannot be applied to courses after you have registered.
Completed applications should be submitted to IU Human Resources for processing. After verification of eligibility, IU Human Resources will provide your enrollment information to Indiana University High School. At that time, you may register for IUHS courses with the fee waiver.
If you are an Indiana high school student who qualifies for free or reduced lunches, you may be eligible for a 25 percent discount on tuition (not fees) for IU High School courses.

If you're taking Indiana University High School courses while earning your diploma locally through a public or private high school, check with your counselor to see if your school participates in the IUHS academic scholarship program.
For every 10 course registrations Indiana University High School receives from your high school, a scholarship covering tuition for an 11th registration is awarded to the school.
Your school determines who receives the scholarship. It can award the scholarship to a student at the time it is received, or scholarships can be banked, with additional scholarships accruing for every 10 registrations. It's possible that your school has a scholarship available, so be sure to talk to your counselor.
For more information, contact IUHS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other scholarship opportunities
Unfortunately, Indiana University is unable to administer federal or state financial aid for students taking courses entirely through distance education. This includes Indiana University High School students.
However, many websites can help you find information about financial aid and commercial student loans. If you're employed, check to see if your company includes tuition reimbursement in its compensation package. Many companies will pay for a percentage of all educational expenses they deem appropriate. Some companies pay for your courses up front. Other companies require you to pay up front, but then reimburse you after you finish a course. If your employer is going to pay your fees, please include an official authorization for billing with your registration form.
