You’ll be amazed at how affordable an AU education is.

Office of Financial Aid AND Scholarships

Getting a quality education to prepare you for who you’ll become comes with a financial cost — but you’ll be surprised at how far your budget can go. Because of the generous supporters of Anderson University, there are numerous options available for you to explore to help shoulder the burden of tuition and other school-related fees.

But think beyond the cost to the future: AU grads enjoy a high placement rate at 97.5% overall. In fact, 100% of our 2017 teacher education candidates passed their Indiana licensing exams as did our nursing graduates!

An AU degree is an investment that will help you get to work and earning more, faster.


You’ll be amazed at how affordable an AU education can be as you find out all the financial aid options available to you. Apply today to begin exploring your financial options and investing in your future at AU!

Questions about the FAFSA? We’re here to help with next steps and more!

I am a business major with a focus in marketing, and I feel fortunate to be a part of the Falls School of Business. I am paying for college all out of pocket with no help except any scholarships or grants I receive. If it wasn’t for my financial aid I wouldn’t have been able to attend Anderson University. To be able to thank all of the donors who provide gifts for student aid or for other programs on campus in just a couple sentences would be impossible. Donors are the reason many of us students are able to go to the university of our choice.
