Benefits of Ivy+ Approach:

  • Frozen tuition means the cost of tuition has not increased, and will not increase for the 2021-22 academic year (Fall 21, Spring 22, Summer 22) OR 2022-2023 academic year. The price per credit hour remains at $149.55, the lowest in Indiana.

  • Ivy+ textbooks means all required textbooks are one price. No more questioning the cost of books! For even more value, required textbooks are free for students* now through the Spring 2023 semester. 

  • Ivy+ tuition means you get the same tuition rate if you enroll in 12 or more credits per semester. It is the same price if you take 12, 13, 14, or 15 or more credits. Graduate faster and reduce the overall cost of your education!

Full-Time Student (12 or more credits per semester)

With Ivy+ tuition, full-time, in-state students taking 12 credits and above will be charged a full-time, flat rate of $2,243.25. Thanks to Ivy+, required textbooks will be free for students* through the Spring 2023 semester. No more expensive, unexpected, out-of-pocket costs because it’s designed to save you time and money, and eliminate hassle. On average, students were paying $56 per credit hour for textbooks alone!

To receive the maximum benefits from the Ivy+ tuition model, students should plan to take 30 credit hours over the course of an academic year. Our Summer-Flex Scholarship* is here to help students who are full-time but do not take 15 credits in the Fall and Spring terms. Students can take any remaining credit hours over the summer to reach 30 credit hours for the year.  

*Summer-Flex is a last-dollar scholarship meaning any financial aid, grants, and scholarships will be applied first. Students will also need a FAFSA on file, be in good academic standing (or meet SAP requirements), be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen and maintain full-time status for both Fall and Spring semesters. 

Part-Time Student (Less than 12 credits per semester)

Part-time students taking less than 12 credits per semester will be charged the in-state tuition rate of $149.55 per credit hour. With Ivy+, required textbooks will be free for students* through the Spring 2023 semester.

If you are an out-of-state student taking less than 12 credit hours, the per credit rate is $292.57.
