Ivy Tech Community College once again freezes tuition for veterans

INDIANAPOLIS – Ivy Tech Community College will once again freeze tuition for Hoosier veterans eligible for the GI Bill, members of the Indiana National Guard, Hoosier veterans and Indiana members of the federal military reserve.  Ivy Tech first froze tuition rates for these groups last summer for the 2011-2012 academic year and will continue again for the 2012-13 school year.

Tuition will remain at the 2010-11 per credit hour rate of $104.55 for these groups, rather than $111.15 per credit hour. Although these tuition rates are the lowest amongst the state’s public colleges and universities, Ivy Tech is committed to keeping its tuition even lower for these specific groups.

Ivy Tech serves more veterans than any other college in the state. Currently, the college serves over 4,000 veterans, with nearly 3,000 receiving benefits.

Ivy Tech is committed to seeing veterans succeed with a support staff throughout the state and a statewide director to expand opportunities for veterans. The Veterans Affairs Office serves as a liaison between students who are veterans, their dependents and the Department of Veteran Affairs. The office assists students with veteran status and dependents of service members disabled or deceased. With 14 offices available statewide, the team also oversees educational benefits and financial aid for veterans.
