Financial and technology supports are made available to students. The associate degree is completely transferrable to all colleges in Indiana and selected others. “In fact, the students graduating in our first two cohorts, had 100 percent of their college credits earned, transfer seamlessly to their bachelor degree granting university or college,” said Kelly Cozart, associate vice chancellor for academics at Ivy Tech. “Students were able to transfer after 11 months to become juniors at IU, Purdue, Butler, USI, UE and Western Kentucky University, to continue toward a four-year degree.”At the event students will have the opportunity to speak with faculty and coordinators of the program, and talk one-on-one with recent graduates. Information about financial aid, programming, supports for students, and a campus tour will be provided. FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img
