New agreement simplifies transfer process for Ivy Tech graduates
Indiana Tech and Ivy Tech Community College have partnered on a new guaranteed admission program that makes it easier for Ivy Tech graduates to transfer to Indiana Tech. The new agreement enables Ivy Tech grads to transfer to Indiana Tech’s main campus in Fort Wayne, as well as its College of Professional Studies, which offers programs online and at its 18 regional locations throughout Indiana, Kentucky and the Chicago area.
The new agreement guarantees admission and a transfer of all 60 credits earned by Ivy Tech associate degree graduates into the equivalent bachelor’s degree programs at Indiana Tech. Guaranteed admission to Indiana Tech is provided to graduates of 10 Ivy Tech programs, while graduates of other Ivy Tech programs may continue to apply and be admitted to Indiana Tech on an individual basis.
Steve Herendeen, Indiana Tech vice president for enrollment management, commented, “Serving students and preparing them for career success have long been the top priorities for both Indiana Tech and Ivy Tech. Our two schools have partnered effectively for many years to help students of all ages earn associate and bachelor’s degrees that equip them with the knowledge, skills and credentials that prepare them for careers of every description. This agreement takes our shared commitment to students to an even higher level – those who earn Ivy Tech degrees are guaranteed to have all of their credits transfer to Indiana Tech and easily move towards completion of their bachelor’s degrees.”
“We are excited to work with Indiana Tech and connect Ivy Tech Community College students to additional pathways toward a bachelor’s degree. This agreement will strengthen our ties with Indiana Tech and give students throughout Indiana more options to achieve their career goals,” noted Kim Barnett-Johnson, Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs at Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne.
