MSEP (Midwest Student Exchange Program)
IU South Bend has joined the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP).
The Midwest Student Exchange Program was established by the Midwestern Higher Education Compact to increase interstate educational opportunities for students in its member states. The program enables legal residents of Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, and Wisconsin who are admitted as nonresident students to enroll at IU South Bend at a reduced cost.
NOTE TO MICHIGAN RESIDENTS IN RESPONSE TO MICHIGAN'S DECISION TO WITHDRAW FROM THE MIDWEST STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM:
Students already enrolled at IU South Bend will continue to receive the MSEP tuition rate according to the original terms of the program. New students admitted for Summer 2020, Fall 2020, or Spring 2021 also are eligible for MSEP consideration. Discussions regarding the tuition rate for Michigan residents admitted for Summer 2021 and beyond are in process. Please check back for updates.
Students from partnering states coming to IU South Bend will pay 150% of the in-state resident tuition rate. This is the in-state tuition rate plus 50% of the in-state rate.
You must be enrolling as a non-resident undergraduate or graduate student. Only those seeking to complete a credential (degree, certificate, diploma) are eligible. Non-degree students and students in fully online programs are ineligible. No application is needed; the reduction will be automatically posted for eligible students. Eligibility is based on the student's address at the time of admission.

If you reside in a participating state and have one of the following immigration statuses you may qualify:
A-1, A-2, A-3, E-1, E-2, E-3, G-1, G-2, G-3, G-4, H-1B, H-4, I, L-1, L-2, O-1, O-3, V-1, V-2, V-3, or pending 1-485 beneficiary.
