Harrison College to cut tuition on several programs

TERRE HAUTE — Harrison College plans to give new and current students in several programs a 10-percent reduction in tuition costs, effective in January.

Because Harrison College already has a tuition freeze program, students will be locked into the reduced tuition rate until graduation, according to a school news release.

“A lot of people are expressing their concerns about the rising cost of higher education in this country, and we share that concern,” said Dennis A. Trinkle, Harrison College provost and chief academic officer. “We decided now is the time to move past the discussion stage and take action.”

Nine programs are impacted by the 10-percent tuition reduction:

• Business Management (B.S. degree).

• Project Management (B.S. degree).

• Health Informatics (B.S. degree).

• Information Technology (B.S. degree).

• Interactive Media Design (B.S. degree).

• Logistics (A.S. degree).

• Network Administration (A.A.S. degree).

• Paralegal (A.A.S. degree).

• Help Desk Technician (Certificate).

Programs chosen for tuition reduction are areas that provide training for careers that will help drive the state’s economy in coming years, Trinkle said.

“We know that there are hundreds of jobs available today in health informatics that are going unfilled because Hoosiers lack the education to fill those jobs,” Trinkle said. Also, thousands of logistics jobs are projected to become available in the next five years.
