College costs are on the rise, but Hoosiers have several low-cost alternatives to choose from when pursuing a higher education.

Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne offers a great transition from home to college with low tuition (about $2900/year), small classes, and a fully transferable curriculum. There are many 2-year degree programs, but each student's program is tailored to meet the academic expectations of their chosen four-year college if they plan to pursue a bachelor's degree. Ivy Tech offers a growing number of online classes, so you really can "homeschool" through college if you wish.

According to collegestats.org, four-year degree institutions that rank the lowest in yearly tuition in Indiana are: Vincennes University, $3974; University of Southern Indiana, $4458; and Indiana University (east), $5292.

The most expensive colleges in Indiana are Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, $30,768; Earlham College, $31,514 and University of Notre Dame, $35,187.

Those wanting to "homeschool" all the way through college may find the fairly new Western Governor's University an intriguing choice. All classes are taken online and the tuition? Only $5580/year for as many classes as you can complete during that time.
