IFS Guide
Intensive Freshman Seminars


While the program fee and room and board are fixed costs, books and supplies will vary by course. Your IFS course will count for 3 credits in your fall credit hour enrollment - It is assumed that IFS students will enroll in 12-18 total credit hours for the fall semester and therefore IFS courses will not require additional tuition!

Tuition and Fees Within 12-18 credit hours Flat Fee Within 12-18 credit hours Flat Fee
Room and Board $675.40 $675.40
Program Fee $125.00 $125.00
Total $800.40 $800.40

Room and board costs appear on your fall bursar bill, and include a meal plan which accommodates the average IFS student.

The $125 nonrefundable program fee is required to reserve your space in IFS. This fee will be charged to your fall Indiana University bursar account in addition to your regular IU charges.  Should you decide to cancel your enrollment in the program for any reason you will still be responsible to pay the $125 program fee. The IU bursar bill is generated electronically and made available on the web. You will be sent an email notification to your IU (indiana.edu) e-mail account when your statement is ready. For more detailed information on this process, please visit the IU Bursar Pay Guide link. For more information on available payment options for your University bursar bill, click here. If you need to withdraw from IFS at any time, you must contact the IFS program in order to process your withdrawal and discuss details related to the Flat-Fee course structure.
