University of Indianapolis announces credit transfer agreement with Ivy Tech Community College

Ivy Tech Community College and the University of Indianapolis have signed a credit transfer agreement that will make it easier for students to earn a bachelor’s degree.

Under the new partnership, students can move seamlessly from the Associate of Science in Business Administration (TSAP) curriculum at Ivy Tech to the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration accelerated adult program at the University of Indianapolis. Designed for working adults, courses in UIndy’s accelerated programs meet face-to-face and online in eight-week sessions. Classes are offered in both the fall and spring semesters, as well as seven-week sessions during the summer.

Students from any Ivy Tech location are eligible to transfer and apply a minimum of 60 credit hours for admission with junior standing to the University of Indianapolis, provided they have a cumulative 2.0 or higher grade point average on a 4.0 scale and meet the definition of ‘adult learner’ per University policy.

“This is an excellent transfer opportunity for our students at Ivy Tech who want to complete their bachelor’s degree in business. Students will be assured that they won’t lose any credits after completing their associate degree. We are optimistic that we will soon have more 2+2 agreements with the University of Indianapolis,” said Russ Baker, vice president for academic affairs at Ivy Tech Community College.

“This is another example of how the University of Indianapolis is working with partner institutions to solve community needs by providing students with lasting, valuable academic experiences. We look forward to welcoming new Greyhounds to campus,” added Executive Vice President and Provost Stephen H. Kolison, Jr.

Interested students can schedule an appointment with a UIndy adult learning enrollment counselor at 317-788-3294 or ALadmissions@uindy.edu.
