Ivy Tech is raising tuition three percent.

Ivy Tech has joined the ranks of Indiana schools that are raising tuition. But under guidance from its Board of Trustees and the Commission on Higher Education, the school has been asked to cap increases at three percent. Ivy Tech President Tom Snyder said he wasn’t worried about backlash.

“We’re not an expensive institution,” Snyder pointed out. “We’re the cheapest in the state. You know it’s now approaching $3,300 a year, maybe $3,400 for a full-time student. That’s a lot of money. But a private school or a private school with room and board might come to $20,000 a year.”

Many Ivy Tech students are taking the tuition hike in stride. Said one, “I think the school grows. As we have more opportunities, I think it’s only natural. I’m not sure I mirror the rest of the student body, but I’m pretty happy about it.”
