The Indiana State Advantage isn't just a commitment to affordability—it's a guarantee for students to graduate in four years, and to provide our students with world-class 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 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.
