Ivy Tech vice president Chris Ruhl (rule) tells the Journal & Courier that the school expects some losses to uncollected bills, but that it trying to collect all the money it can.

School officials say the tax intercept program will apply to students who owe money for the 2011-12 academic year and thereafter.
