The partnership will provide a basis for a cooperative relationship between the University of Indianapolis and Ivy Tech Community College to benefit students who desire to complete a bachelor’s degree in a variety of programs.

“The University of Indianapolis is excited to offer this opportunity and expand the number of students in our community who are able to attain bachelor’s degrees,” said Robert L. Manuel, president of the University of Indianapolis. “The partnership expands access to our high-quality degree programs to anyone who is ready and interested, and will assist individual students, regional economic development initiatives, and our society as a whole.”
Ivy Tech Community College provides students with a sound, comprehensive introduction to these fields and will prepare them for taking the next step to earning a bachelor’s degree.
“Ivy Tech is delighted to add these new seamless transfer opportunities with the University of Indianapolis,” said Sue Ellspermann, Ivy Tech President. “The opportunity to complete the first two years of a Bachelor’s degree at Ivy Tech and transfer all of that credit to University of Indianapolis will significantly reduce the total cost of degree completion and provide even more excellent transfer options for students who wish to complete their degree while staying within the Indianapolis metropolitan area.”
According to the agreements, Ivy Tech graduates from the aforementioned associate degree programs may transfer to the University of Indianapolis and apply a minimum of 60 credit hours from that completed degree to the requirements for a corresponding bachelor of science or art degree in the Shaheen College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Applied Behavioral Sciences, or the School of Business.
