Ivy Tech Community College and Indianapolis-based Allison Transmission have formed a partnership through the school’s Achieve Your Degree program.
Companies that offer tuition reimbursement benefits can participate in Achieve Your Degree to encourage their employees to further their education with minimal upfront cost. The program aims to help employers develop higher-skilled employees from within their existing workforce.
Under the program, Ivy Tech offers application assistance and academic advising to participants, and defers billing until the end of the semester so students can take advantage of any financial aid for which they are qualified. The balance of tuition is then covered by the company’s assistance plan.
Ivy Tech has similar Achieve Your Degree partnerships with several other employers around the state, including in Bloomington, Evansville, Terre Haute and Jasper.
