Free college classes for high school students

Indiana high school students can get a head start on earning college credits for free this summer from Ivy Tech Community College. For the fourth year, Ivy Tech’s 19 campuses across the state will offer free tuition and textbooks to all eligible Indiana high school students.

To enroll in free summer courses at Ivy Tech, students must be Indiana residents at any high school in the state – including eighth graders entering ninth grade in the fall, graduating seniors, homeschool students, and students at adult high schools. Students who qualify for free summer courses will receive free tuition and textbooks. Courses are available from Ivy Tech’s more than 70 academic programs designed for Indiana’s high-wage, in-demand jobs. Many courses are included in the state’s Core Transfer Library, which ensures students can transfer their credits to public in-state institutions and most private and out-of-state institutions.
