Indiana State University Online

About Indiana State University Online

Indiana State University is a medium-sized, comprehensive university founded in 1865. The student population of approximately 10,000 includes students from throughout the United States and 59 countries. Indiana State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.

The University has offered distance learning since 1969.

On-campus courses are transformed to distance courses using the latest technologies. The primary delivery mode is the Internet. Selected courses are offered via Desktop Videoconferencing and live I-TV (accessible at selected receive sites).

Many courses and programs are offered entirely via distance learning; others require minimal visits to the ISU campus. Typically, any required on-campus components are designed to accommodate the schedules and geographic restrictions of working adults.

The University offers a comprehensive package of student services, including technical assistance for on-line and I-TV courses, credit transfer assistance, financial aid programs, an online bookstore, and library services.

Financial assistance programs include state and federal financial aid (including veterans benefits), scholarships, and student loans. In addition, the University's Sycamore Payment Plan enables eligible students to pay for semester-based courses in affordable monthly payments instead of large annual or semester payments.
