INDIANAPOLIS – Ivy Tech Community College will conduct a public hearing regarding the setting of student fees on Thursday, July 16, in Indianapolis.
The hearing will begin at 8 a.m. in the 4th Floor Auditorium in the North Meridian Center on Ivy Tech’s downtown Indianapolis campus, located at 50 W. Fall Creek Parkway North Drive.
The current 2008-09 in-state student tuition rate is $95.00 per credit hour with a $40 per semester technology fee. Proposed rates are $99.65 per credit hour and a $50 per semester technology fee for the 2009-10 academic year and $104.55 per credit hour and a $60 per semester technology fee for the 2010-2011 academic year. The cost for full-time students taking 15 credit hours will increase by $79.75 per semester in 2009-10 and by $83.50 per semester in 2010-11.
Revenue from these increases will be used to serve additional students, hire additional full-time faculty, add financial aid and student services staff, pay for higher utilities and maintenance costs for existing facilities, pay costs associated with opening new facilities, increase institutional financial aid, and for information technology needs.
