What is Deferred Payment?

Deferred payment is when billing for the balance of a semester's cost is deferred until the end of the semester and payment isn't due until classes are complete. Deferred tuition payment programs allow students to gain skills or earn a degree or certificate without paying tuition upfront.

Corporate partners who wish to support their employees' education through deferred tuition payments can do so in two ways:

  • Achieve Your Degree Program – Achieve Your Degree is the name of Ivy Tech's employer-sponsored deferred payment program. The program provides a path for employees of participating companies to learn new skills and earn a college degree or certificate in a field of study approved by you at minimal or zero up-front cost, all while working full time. This program is described in detail on this page.
  • Deferred Billing Authorization – Ivy Tech also offers the option of deferring tuition payments for both credit and non-credit courses through deferred billing authorization for corporate partners. Call 1-888-489-5463 to get connected with your local Ivy Tech Employer Consultant to discuss setting up a deferred billing authorization for your company.

How Achieve Your Degree Works

Ivy Tech assists students with applying to Ivy Tech and applying for financial aid. Any financial aid the student is awarded is applied to the semester's cost and then billing for the balance is deferred until the end of the semester. Company tuition reimbursement plans then cover the balance per company policy. The result is no-cost classes for students.

A combination of in-person and online courses ensures that students can maintain their work schedule while attending classes.

A Smart Choice for Employers

  • The Achieve Your Degree program can replace internal professional development training
  • Achieve Your Degree students become more involved in the surrounding community and are more loyal to your organization
  • Ivy Tech will work with your company to design custom training, short-term training classes, and certifications that your employees can earn
  • Ivy Tech's tuition rate is the lowest in the state
  • Statewide Achieve Your Degree Partnerships

    Local Achieve Your Degree Partnerships

    Individual Ivy Tech campuses also have additional Achieve Your Degree partnerships with local companies. To see partnerships in your community, select the Ivy Tech campus location closest to you in the "Local Achieve Your Degree Employer Partnerships" dropdown.

  • If you currently offer tuition reimbursement benefits for your employees, the Ivy Tech Achieve Your Degree program can be a smart addition to your benefits package. Our current partners consider it a win-win for the company and their employees, as it allows them to upskill their workforce while offering an Ivy Tech credential for their staff for no upfront costs.

    Steps to get started include:

    1. Complete the Memorandum of Understanding.
    2. Work with Ivy Tech to determine a date for an onsite information and enrollment session.
    3. Determine your internal point person for the Achieve Your Degree program.
    4. Market the Achieve Your Degree program to your employees.

  • Taps Into Existing Tuition Reimbursement Benefits

    The Achieve Degree program taps into the tuition reimbursement benefits you already have in place for your workforce. You collaborate with Ivy Tech to determine an approved set of programs, credentials, and classes that students can pursue using their allotted tuition benefits.

    Ivy Tech will help students apply for financial aid. Any financial aid the student is awarded will be applied to the semester's cost and then billing and payment for the balance are deferred until the end of the semester. Company tuition reimbursement plans then cover the balance per your company policy. 

    If you don't already have a reimbursement policy, Ivy Tech will help you design one.

    Tuition Costs

    When it comes to high-quality education for the best value, no other college can match Ivy Tech Community College. Our tuition is a fraction of the cost of other options, and scholarships and grants make it possible to save even more. And with , additional fees like textbooks are transparent and easy to track.
