Financial aid options

The last thing you want to stress out about when you're starting college is how you're going to pay for it. The good news is that there are lots of financial aid options available to make it easier. No matter what type of financial aid you choose, remember that your education is a sound investment that will give you big rewards now - and in the future.

To apply for financial aid, complete your FAFSA online using Ivy Tech's school code: 009917.


A loan is a form of financial aid that must be repaid with interest, just as you would for any loan you currently have (car, house, etc.). Education loans come in two major categories:

  1. Federal student loans (e.g., Stafford and Perkins loans): These loans have low interest rates and a variety of payment and deferment options. They do not require credit checks or collateral.
  2. Private student loans: These loans are offered by private lenders (e.g. your personal bank); there are no federal forms to complete. Eligibility for these loans often depends on having a good credit rating.


Grants are a form of financial aid, based on need, that you do not have to repay. Federal grants are available for qualifying students, and the amount awarded can vary depending on which grants you qualify for. The two most common grants are the Federal Pell Grant and the Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant.

One good centralized place to look for scholarships on the web is FastWeb, a free scholarship search engine. You enter all of your criteria and they'll return only the awards relevant to you.

Payment Plans

Our tuition payment plan provides a low cost option for budgeting tuition and fees. It is not a loan program, therefore, you have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The only cost is a $25.00 per semester non-refundable enrollment fee. You can choose to make your monthly payments directly from your bank account or by credit card. MasterCard, American Express, Visa, and Discover are accepted.

To set up a payment plan, log in to Campus Connect and click the "Set up payment plan" link which is located in the My Ivy Tech section.
