    Ivy Tech Community College has announced plans to freeze tuition for those students who remain enrolled continuously from term to term starting with the Fall 2015 semester and also for those students who enroll in 30+ credit hours combined for the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 terms.

    “This is an incentive model for both our non-traditional, part-time students along with those full-time students on a two-year track to graduation,” said Ivy Tech President Thomas J. Snyder. “We know students who are continuously enrolled are more likely to complete a credential.”
