Achieve Your Degree (AYD) 

The Achieve Your Degree Program is a partnership between Ivy Tech Community College and community businesses and institutions to offer employees the opportunity to receive a community college education at minimal cost.

Ivy Tech assists AYD students with the college and financial aid application process and defers billing until the end of the semester - ensuring students take advantage of any financial aid opportunities for which they qualify. Company tuition plans then cover the balance per company policy.
