Ivy Tech Community College students have a clearer path to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Ivy Tech students from across Indiana now have guaranteed admission, based on select provisions, into Indiana University Northwest, eliminating any loss of credits earned while minimizing cost to students, college officials said. Applications fees to IU Northwest will also be waived for associate degree holders.
The Guaranteed Admission Agreement between both institutions outlines specific coursework that will fulfill requirements at both institutions, ensuring a seamless transfer for students and ensuring they are able to complete their bachelor’s degrees on time. Students who have earned an Associate of Science degree at Ivy Tech, and who meet the statewide Transfer General Education Core requirements, along with other stated eligibility requirements, including academic standing in prior courses, will be guaranteed admission into the bachelor degree program in their area of study at IUN.
Cynthia O’Dell, associate vice chancellor for academic affairs at IUN, said the goal of the agreement is to clear the way for more opportunities and brighter futures for all Indiana residents.
“We consider that Ivy Tech and IU Northwest students have a shared goal from the start, to earn a four-year degree,” O’Dell said. “That’s why having IU Northwest requirements foremost all the way through the planning process for Ivy Tech students is essential.”
Dorothy Frink, director of admissions at IUN, said this new agreement heightens the ability to seamlessly offer admission to transfer students.
“Ivy Tech and IU Northwest have always had a strong relationship and have traditionally worked at aligning programs at both institutions to help students keep their eye on a four-year degree,” she said. “This new agreement is the next step in guaranteeing a seamless transfer pathway.”
