Tuition & Financial Aid

IND strives to create educational opportunities for mission-appropriate students. As a result, we work closely with and rely on non-profit foundations and donors to help us keep tuition fees low. Through grants, need-based aid and scholarships, our families are able to afford an IND education for their daughters.  

By meeting the financial aid application deadline and submitting all admissions applications in a timely manner, your daughter enhances her chances of receiving the aid needed. Although late applications may be considered, if submitted after the deadlines, you may not be guaranteed aid. Please read the Important Dates section closely for applications deadlines.

Please feel free to contact our Business Office or Office of Enrollment if you have more specific questions.  We are happy to help you plan for your daughter’s education.

Financial Aid

For need-based financial aid, IND uses FACTS Grant Aid and Assessment. Anyone wanting to be considered for need-based aid needs to submit a financial aid application to FACTS between November 1, 2018, and December 31, 2018. Need-based financial aid awards are granted after a thorough review of the family’s completed FACTS application. All aid is awarded on a yearly basis and is continued each subsequent year if the family's financial need is indicated on the FACTS report. Students must be in good standing in all aspects of student life.

To be considered for need based financial assistance, the following must be submitted to FACTS by December 31, 2018:

  1. A completed financial aid form sent to FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. Click here to enroll in FACTS.
  2. A copy of your most recent tax returns with W-2's attached, also sent to FACTS.

All decisions on financial awards will be mailed to all students in February, along with admissions decision letters. FACTS applications received after the deadline will be reviewed only if funds are still available.
