The more than 8 percent annual increase approved Thursday would increase the cost of a three-hour class by $15 in the fall and by $60 in the spring of 2015. Ivy Tech currently charges $111 per credit hour.

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education recommended no more than a 2 percent increase.

The board also passed a resolution to save $500,000 by going with PepsiCo as the college's sole beverage provider and no longer offering Coca-Cola beverages.

The 175,000-student community college also is considering closing about a quarter of its 72 locations across Indiana.
