What is Cash for Completion?
Cash for Completion will help you reduce your tuition costs, more than you already have! You may not realize it, but as an Ivy Tech student, you have already saved thousands of dollars on your education. Cash for Completion will help you save even more. When you graduate from Ivy Tech then transfer to an eligible four-year institution, Cash for Completion will allow you to earn money toward your bachelor's degree—helping you save $12,000 or more on tuition costs.
Am I eligible?
To see if you are eligible for this program, you must:
- Qualify for—but do not have to receive—the Frank O’Bannon Grant (view qualifications)
- Complete your associate degree at Ivy Tech
- Transfer to an eligible Indiana four-year college or university
How much money will I get?
The amount you will receive will depend on how quickly you work towards your bachelor’s degree after you transfer from Ivy Tech.
- Standard: Complete at least 30 credit hours in your first school year at a four-year institution and receive $800 per academic year
- Accelerated: Complete at least 39 credit hours in your first school year at a four-year institution and receive $1300 per academic year
Take these savings, on top the $10,000+ in savings from earning your associate degree through Ivy Tech and you will could graduate with little to no student debt!
What can funds be used for?
Funds automatically count toward tuition and fees for your bachelor’s degree. They will be made available to you through your financial aid after you have graduated from Ivy Tech with your associate degree.
Do I have to do anything to get this money?
Nothing extra—just graduate from Ivy Tech with your associate degree. That’s it! There’s nothing to fill out, no running around to turn things in on time—just get your associate degree and transfer to get your bachelor’s at an eligible four-year college or university.
