Costs and Financial Aid

Cost Per Credit Hour



No Out-of-state Tuition Means you Save

With NIU Online, you’ll pay the same cost per credit hour as an Illinois resident—no matter where you live in the U.S. You’ll also be eligible for the same financial aid and scholarship opportunities as an on-campus student.
