Ivy Tech Community College is extending its Ivy+ Textbooks program to cover the cost of required textbooks for all eligible students in the 2022-23 academic year. The college says this will be the second year textbooks will be provided at no cost to students.

More than 47,000 students are enrolled for the spring semester and will receive the savings.

“Continuing to find innovative ways to lower costs for our students is an important part of the overall value we are providing to students and to our community,” said President Dr. Sue Ellspermann. “We know that the cost of textbooks are often a limiting factor for our students, and we are pleased to be able to provide free textbooks for another year.”

Last fall, Ivy Tech says more than 55,000 students received free textbooks, saving students a total of more than $14 million.

The college says its Ivy+ tuition program will also continue for the 2022-23 academic year, providing a new tuition model for full-time students. Students who take 12 credit hours a semester pay a flat rate and can add additional credit hours at no cost.

Ivy Tech says the flat rate encourages full-time students to take additional courses each term, helping them graduate faster and save money. As part of the program, tuition will be frozen in 2022-23 for part-time students.
