Indiana University Bloomington and Ivy Tech Community College have built on their long history of partnership in support of students by creating new transfer pathways with five new guaranteed admissions agreements. The agreements will permit Ivy Tech students who have earned certain associate degrees to transfer as juniors and choose among nine related baccalaureate programs to major in at IU Bloomington.

“We are thrilled about this new partnership with our colleagues at Ivy Tech,” IU Bloomington Interim Provost and Executive Vice President John Applegate said. “The guaranteed admissions agreements plan builds upon our current successful transfer agreements and helps place well-prepared students directly into some of our most sought-after majors.”

Students who enrolled at Ivy Tech after June 1, 2021, are eligible for the guaranteed admission option. Each program has specific requirements for admission and the timing of when students may transfer, either the fall or spring terms. According to each agreement, admitted students will be awarded at least 60 credit hours toward their bachelor’s degree.

“Ivy Tech is helping more students realize their goal of earning a bachelor’s degree at IU Bloomington,” Ivy Tech President Sue Ellspermann said. “While there has been a transfer pathway for years, this guarantees a student who completes an agreed upon associate degree and meets IUs requirements will be admitted as a junior into select programs. This relieves many students and their families of the worry, ‘Will I get admitted?’ and saves them and the state thousands of dollars by completing their associate degree first at Ivy Tech.”

Ivy Tech to IU Bloomington transfer programs are:

  • Associate of Science in Informatics to Bachelor of Science in Informatics
  • Associate of Science in Elementary Education to Bachelor of Science in Education, Elementary Education
  • Associate of Science in Criminal justice to Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice
  • Associate of Science in Biology to Bachelor of Arts in Biology or Bachelor of Science in Biology
  • Associate of Science in Psychology to Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Bachelor of Science in Organizational and Business Psychology, or Bachelor of Science in Clinical Psychological Science
