Tuition & Scholarships

Parents of high school students will be pleased to know that College Challenge coordinators have worked with participating high schools and Indiana State University to make college education more affordable for students. By reducing tuition rates and creating scholarship opportunities, we hope that the College Challenge program allows more students to experience the challenges of a college curriculum before graduating high school.

Tuition & Fees

We understand that saving money on college education is an important concern for parents everywhere. That is why students and their parents receive a significantly reduced tuition rate at the fraction of the cost of regular on-campus courses when they enroll in College Challenge courses. While regular on-campus courses can run upwards of $282 per credit hour, College Challenge courses cost just $25 per credit hour.

  • The current fee rate is $25 per credit hour or $75-$100 per course.
  • Fees are payable by Visa, MasterCard, check, or money order.
  • Checks and money orders should be made payable to Indiana State University.

Students eligible for the free/reduced lunch program are eligible for a waiver of all tuition and fees for College Challenge courses. The College Challenge Program fees are NOT waived for 21st Century Scholars, unless the high school designee confirms in writing that the student is eligible for free/reduced lunch. The student' high school counselor must supply the necessary documentation of the student' eligibility for the free/reduced lunch program.

College Challenge tuition is due in full by the payment deadline indicated on the student bill. If tuition is not paid in full by the stated deadline, the student will be administratively withdrawn from the College Challenge course. Late payments will not be accepted. Postmark date will NOT be used to determine the date payment is received. Tuition payments should be mailed to the following address:

Scholarship Opportunities

The College Challenge Success Award is open to students who have successfully completed a College Challenge course and have been accepted to Indiana State University as a full-time undergraduate. This scholarship is a one-time scholarship in the amount of $400 that is non-transferable and must be used exclusively at ISU.

Students interested in this scholarship must meet the following requirements to be considered:

  • Completed at least one College Challenge course
  • Earned at least a “C” in a College Challenge course
  • Apply and be accepted unconditionally to ISU by March 1 of their senior year
  • Be a full-time student and be enrolled in 12 or more credit hours per semester at ISU
Note: Students do not receive $400 per successful completion of each College Challenge course for which they enroll; this is a one-time scholarship that is disbursed during the student' freshman year if the student is enrolled as a full-�time undergraduate student at ISU.
