Home > Tuition & Fees

Lower cost, great value: that’s the Ivy Tech difference! When it comes to affordability, no other college can match Ivy Tech. Our tuition is a fraction of the cost of other options, and scholarships and grants allow you to save even more. Many of our students attend tuition free. Enrolling at Ivy Tech allows you to avoid or significantly decrease student loan debt while earning a credential that’s respected by employers.
