To all Ivy Tech graduates..

  1. I have a question for you all, I was wondering if you could tell me about how much your ASN degree cost all together (after grad.)...including tuition, books, supplies etc. I know it varies, but could you give an estimate? I'm wanting to take 6 credit hours a sem (going slow) and my EFC is 4050 so needless to say I will have to take out student loans. And was just curious. Thank you all!

    FYI - Depending on what campus you attend, you may not have a say in what you want to take. Some campuses tell you exactly what you are going to take and when.

    I didn't know that. I seen a few people state how much it cost them (even with student loans and grants) for their degree (again depending on what degree and what school) but I couldn't find anyone that stated how much their ASN degree from Ivy Tech. cost them after all was said and done. So I was just curious, thanks though.

    It is $95 per credit hour and there is 69-71 total credit (this includes general education requirements). Total about $7000. Add books in there, lab fees, roughly about $8000.

    I think that for most programs 3000 or less a year could easily be done. Take 12 credit hours a semester (min. for full time financial aid) and use used books, you have got it made! The nursing program takes a couple of years, has some pricey books, and has a few extra fees. They certainly advertise the cheapest way to go though.

    Umm...it is <$3000 per year. She was quoting the entire cost of the whole ASN program. For full time I pay around $1600 a semester in tuition. You will pay a little bit more for nursing I would assume, but it is still less than $3000.
