 Note: semester cost estimate above does not include other items you may need that are not purchased on a semester basis.

Students should estimate an additional $900 for these items.

1Fees reflect the 2022-2023 rate and are subject to change. The estimate above does not include remaining prerequisite courses or the cost to complete your BSN degree (if applicable). The Nursing Advisor can provide a cost analysis based upon your prior credits and degree(s). Non-resident students enrolled in eISU (online) courses will have the Non-Resident Tuition Fee waived, resulting in our non-resident students being assessed In-State Costs. See the current ISU Cost of Attendance at isu.edu/cost/ and isu.edu/costinfo/.

2In addition to ISU tuition and fees, a professional fee is assessed for all undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Nursing. Professional fees for the nursing programs are used to support faculty salaries, instruction support services, durable & disposable equipment and supplies, faculty and staff program travel, capital equipment and a reserve for maintenance and purchase of major capital items.

3Review the funding and support options for graduate students (isu.edu/graduate/funding-and-support/), and contact the Scholarship Office to see if you are eligible for scholarships (isu.edu/scholarships/apply-for-scholarships/graduate-students/).
