ISU President Dr. Deborah J. Curtis talks about the Indiana State Advantage on Inside Indiana Business with alumnus Gerry Dick.
Indiana State University has announced a bold recruitment initiative, the Indiana State Advantage, a three-pronged guarantee to entering freshmen, beginning in Fall 2022, that is unusual if not unique for a public university. The three prongs: • Experiential Guarantee: Every first-time, full-time student on campus can apply for up to $3,000 for an educational experience outside the classroom — an internship, study abroad, research, or service. • Tuition-free Guarantee: After aid is calculated, ISU will make up any difference in tuition costs for Pell Granteligible students from the state of Indiana who had a high school gpa of at least 3.0 and are in good academic standing. • Four-year Guarantee: Eligible students will be able to finish a bachelor’s degree in four years or the rest is tuition free.
