Private School Approach - Public School Accessibility on institutional building illustration

The Indiana State Advantage isn't just a commitment to affordability—it's a guarantee that incoming, first-time, full-time students will graduate in four years and will enjoy the world-class, Indiana State college experience.

The Indiana State Advantage is designed to help students experience a world-class education without compromise. It’s a promise of college affordability, a commitment to out-of-classroom learning and enrichment, and a guarantee that students who enroll in Fall 2022 or later will graduate in four years.

The Advantage is rooted in Indiana State’s mission of preparing Sycamores for exciting careers in high-demand industries that power our state’s economy. Students benefit from hands-on learning, quality professional internships, engaged world-class faculty with deep business and industry connections, and service opportunities on campus, in the community, and abroad. That’s why Indiana State ranks #1 in Indiana for social mobility.**

The Indiana State Advantage – including free tuition for Pell-eligible students in Indiana, a $3,000 experience grant, and a four-year guarantee* – makes this premier educational experience accessible to every qualified student. It proves that excellence and accessibility are not mutually exclusive – in fact, at Indiana State, they are intentionally inclusive.
