Ivy Tech Community College will conduct a public hearing concerning its proposed tuition and mandatory fee rate increase at 2:30pm on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 in the William Morris Boardroom (room 300) on the third floor of the North Meridian Center building at Ivy Tech’s Indianapolis Campus, located at 50 W. Fall Creek Parkway North Drive, Indianapolis.

This hearing will provide the public the opportunity to comment on proposed student tuition and mandatory fee increases for the academic years 2019‐20 and 2020‐21.

The proposed new tuition rate for 2019-20 for in-state tuition is $145.01 per credit hour, a $4.40 per credit hour increase. For 2020-21, the proposed tuition rate for in-state tuition is $149.55 per credit hour, an increase of $4.54 per credit hour over 2019-20.   The technology fee for both academic years will remain flat at $75 per semester.  With the increases proposed, Ivy Tech remains the lowest tuition in the state of Indiana with the lowest overall cost of attendance.

The proposed new tuition rate for 2019-20 for out-of-state tuition is $283.69 and $292.57 per credit hour in 2020-21.

The proposed new tuition rate for 2019-20 for out-of-state distance education is $170.06 and $175.38 per credit hour in 2020-21.

Those who would like to address the committee, but are unable to attend the hearing may instead send written comments to William Bogard, assistant vice president for budget management.  Comments can be sent to wfbogard@ivytech.edu or mailed to Bogard at Ivy Tech Community College, 50 W. Fall Creek Pkwy North Dr., Indianapolis, IN 46208.

This proposed increase in tuition will be presented to the State Board of Trustees during the June meeting.  The increased student tuition and mandatory fees, in combination with the state’s operating appropriations in 2019‐20 and in 2020‐21 are necessary to fund the college’s operating budget.
