CIU students can apply for federal grants and loans by filling out the FAFSA. Federal aid will assist with covering the costs associated with the online undergraduate or online graduate programs.


Not everyone can afford to pay college tuition in one lump sum. That’s why we offer our tuition payment plan, which allows you to pay tuition in interest-free monthly installments. You pay a one-time enrollment fee (no more than $40) to sign up for the plan, and you must enroll in the plan before your tuition payment is due.
