K-12 Initiatives 2012-2013 Programs

Traditional Dual Credit - Contact Esther Myrick at 916-7983, or Heather Morrison 921-4907,

  • Ivy Tech Community College offers Dual Credit agreements to schools with appropriately credentialed high school /career center instructors whose courses align with courses on the Ivy Tech Dual Credit Crosswalk.
  • In order to qualify to offer dual credit, course content must be equivalent to the Ivy Tech course by incorporating the identical syllabi, comparable textbooks, class assignments, and examinations. All performance expectations required of the Ivy Tech Community College course shall be met.
  • Students taking Dual Credit classes must meet the same academic readiness standards as students taking the same course on an Ivy Tech campus. Proof of academic readiness can be demonstrated through qualifying PSAT, SAT, or ACT scores, or appropriate placement on the Accuplacer assessment.
  • There is no tuition charge to students or to the school for Dual Credit classes. Ivy Tech covers the cost.
  • High school Dual Credit faculty have the opportunity to participate in on-going professional development and may be eligible for fee remission.

Summer College Academy

  • Ivy Tech Community College offers students who have successfully completed Dual Credit during the preceding academic year the opportunity to participate in Summer College Academy on the Ivy Tech Central Indiana Campus to encourage continued college attendance. During the summer semester, the College will offer three credits of tuition from a list of transferable general education classes or a selection of approved program specific courses free of charge for the first 100 selected recipients. Students must meet any prerequisites.
  • The Summer College Academy is open to high school students who have successfully completed Dual Credit classes at their respective high school.
  • Students are financially responsible for purchasing required textbooks and materials for the Summer College Academy with limited scholarships available.

Professor on Loan – Contact Cyndi Stout 921-4261,

  • Ivy Tech Community College can provide a "Professor on Loan" to high schools to enhance dual credit enrollment opportunities otherwise not available. Through the Professor on Loan program, a credentialed Ivy Tech faculty member comes directly to the high school to provide instruction. High school and college credit can be awarded in this way.
  • Scheduling of class meeting time is flexible although the total number of class hours is set. The class follows a regular college semester meeting schedule of 16 weeks with high school breaks taken into consideration.
  • Students must demonstrate academic readiness for each course as in the traditional Dual Credit program. Proof of academic readiness is demonstrated through qualifying PSAT, SAT, or ACT scores, or appropriate placement on the Accuplacer assessment.
  • A flat rate of $2400 for a 3 credit hour course is charged to the school/school district to cover the cost of instruction. Students are not charged tuition by the college to attend the classes however the cost of textbooks and materials are not covered by the college. Course offerings are limited by professor availability.

Special Admission/Early Admission – Contact Cyndi Stout 921-4261,

  • Special or Early Admission allows eligible high school students to experience the demands of completing college level coursework in an actual college setting on the Ivy Tech Community College campus with other college students.
  • Ivy Tech based tuition, textbooks and fees apply for Early Admission candidates and may be paid by the individual, high school, or other means.
  • Ivy Tech K-12 staff work with high school staff/career center personnel/ homeschool administrators or parents to identify students who are eligible to participate.
  • Students may enroll in courses for which they meet admission requirements and demonstrate academic readiness. Proof of academic readiness is shown through appropriate PSAT, SAT, or ACT scores, or appropriate placement on Accuplacer. Courses may be taken on campus or online.
  • Students must complete the Special Admission Request Form to allow information to be shared with schools and parents.
  • Upon approval of the high school, credit earned can apply to high school graduation requirements.
  • Scheduling of coursework can occur during the regular school day as approved by the high school or outside of regular school hours.
  • The Early Admission program will provide additional case management (advising) to enrolled students to help ensure their progress and success. This program is a contractual agreement between the high school/career center and Ivy Tech Community College. Additional fees may apply.

College Readiness Center - Contact Gary Pellico 968-1509,

  • The College Readiness Center is designed to assist and support high school students to become academically ready for college and prepared for college life. The center is jointly sponsored by a local high school and Ivy Tech Community College.
  • This self-paced academic program is available at no cost to 11th and 12th grade students who score within 10 points of college readiness in two or more areas on the Accuplacer assessment.
  • The College Readiness Center includes teacher-guided, online learning with a focus on math, reading and writing and uses a syllabus. The goal of the program is to prepare students for admission to Ivy Tech without the condition of having to enroll in remediation courses as a requirement for college entrance.

College Placement Test

  • High schools or career centers may request Accuplacer testing of students on-site for the purpose of placement into programs offered through the K-12 division of Ivy Tech Community College. These programs include Dual Credit, Special Admission, Professor on Loan, and the College Readiness Center.
  • The Ivy Tech Accuplacer assessment is the standard test the college administers to give an indication of a student's ability to perform at the college level.
  • Accuplacer is not required if a student has recent ACT or SAT scores.
