About Ivy Tech

HIGHER EDUCATION THAT’S BUILT AROUND YOU.

WE MEET STUDENTS WHERE THEY ARE

At Ivy Tech we have the resources, focus, and flexibility to meet students where they are, then walk with them to where they’re going.

No two students’ paths to the future look the same. We get that. So, we listen. We support. We guide. With 70+ academic programs and classes in 75+ communities in Indiana—plus online—you’ll be able to find your fit for the next step in your career.

And that career will lead you to your better life, every day from graduation on.

WHAT IS A COMMUNITY COLLEGE?

A community college is what the name implies: It is a higher education institution that primarily serves its surrounding community. Community colleges are the most common type of two-year colleges in the U.S. Community colleges like Ivy Tech offer millions of students a better way to reach their goals— whether that goal is to get a good-paying career fast, or to get a better, more affordable start to a bachelor’s degree by transferring credits on to a four-year school.

 

Ivy Tech is the largest singly-accredited community college in the country.
