Benefits

Experience College Before College

  • Get personal attention and hands-on learning opportunities — benefits of our small class sizes.
  • Connect with Indiana Tech students, faculty and support staff.
  • Use the facilities of Indiana Tech’s main campus, including our McMillen Library, computer labs, Fitness Center and Rec Center.
  • Participate in campus activities and events, including performances and sporting events.

Early Start is Financially Smart

  • Classes are just $25 per credit hour compared to $510 per credit hour for a traditional student enrolled at our campus. If you take the maximum number of Early Start courses, you can save approximately $17,000 over the course of your undergraduate degree.
  • Receive a $500 Indiana Tech scholarship for every Early Start class you complete with a grade of C or higher (up to $1,500).
  • Students who are eligible to receive free or reduced lunches through their high school are eligible to get one Early Start class fee waived.

Everything is Included

  • All Early Start students receive a parking pass at no charge.
  • Textbooks are included at no cost for all Indiana Tech students.
  • Early Start students receive a student ID, just like any other student. This will allow you to access facilities and participate in events on the Fort Wayne campus. You can also use it to take advantage of student discounts available from participating Fort Wayne businesses.
