General Application

NO APPLICATION FEE, NO ESSAY

VIEW STEPS TO APPLY TO IVY TECH

NO APPLICATION DEADLINES

Ivy Tech does not have a deadline for admission. Our 8-week class sessions start throughout the year—in January, March, June, August, and October—and there is no hard deadline for applying for any of the start dates. It's important, though, to apply early enough that you'll be able to complete all the degree planning, financial aid, and registration activities that need to happen before your first day. We recommend you apply about one month before you intend to start classes. 

See upcoming start dates

Open-Access Policy

Ivy Tech Community College has an open-access policy. This means that almost anyone who applies gets accepted to the college. In general, neither a high school diploma nor a GED or equivalency is required. The only requirement is for students to take an assessment to determine course placement so they can then be registered for classes. Depending on the program or course you choose, however, there may be some basic requirements, so be sure to review application requirements on each academic program page.

92% of our alumni would choose to attend Ivy Tech again

Selective Admissions for Certain Academic Programs

While admission to Ivy Tech is open-access, some academic degree programs at the college are highly competitive. Those programs have a selective admissions process, which means there are additional requirements students will need to complete before being accepted, and not all students who apply to the program will be accepted as space can be limited.

* Tuition costs per semester are shown for a full-time, Indiana resident. Total cost of attendance is estimated and includes tuition and some fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation, and personal expenses.

Application Valid for 2 years

Your application is valid for two calendar years. If it has been two years since your initial application or two years since you have taken a class, you must complete a new application for admission. (For example, if you applied for fall 2020, that means you need to reapply for any term after fall 2022).

If you have been absent from Ivy Tech Community College for less than two years, you should be able to enroll in classes using your MyIvy account. If you have questions about what classes you should be taking, you should contact your academic advisor.

Please note, the processes above also apply to students that had to withdraw from the College due to a family emergency.

Apply Now

No Application Deadlines

Ivy Tech does not have a deadline for admission. Our 8-week class sessions start throughout the year—in January, March, June, August, and October—and there is no hard deadline for applying for any of the start dates. 

Plan Ahead

It's important, though, to apply early enough that you'll be able to complete all the degree planning, financial aid, and registration activities that need to happen before your first day. We recommend you apply about one month before you intend to start classes. But don't worry, if you don't complete the admissions process by the start of the semester, you will still be able to start classes. Your advisor will work with you every step of the way to help you succeed!

What is Selective Admission?

Admission to Ivy Tech is open access; however, some degree programs at the college are highly competitive. Those programs have a selective admissions process, which means not all students who apply to the program will be accepted. Selective admission processes are needed because there are more people interested in taking courses in those programs than there are seats available.

Programs with Selective Admission

The following academic programs at Ivy Tech have a selective admissions process:

How this Affects Applying to Ivy Tech

Students interested in selective programs must apply to Ivy Tech and complete the prerequisites before they can apply to their selective program. Selective programs accept a limited number of students each year and require a separate application. Students interested in these programs should contact their local campus for more details.

Assessing Transfer Credits

If you're interested in seeing if any of your previous classes qualify for transfer credit to Ivy Tech, once you are admitted you will need to submit an official copy of your college transcripts from your former institution to our Transcript Processing Center.

By Email

You can request copies to be sent electronically via email to transcripts@ivytech.edu.

By Mail

An official transcript will need to come from the registrar at your former institution in a sealed envelope to be considered for transfer credit. Ask your former institution to mail a copy of your official transcripts to:

Ivy Tech Community College Transcript Processing Center
9301 E. 59th Street
Indianapolis, IN  46216

Correcting an Application Mistake

If you completed the wrong application or submitted information that you now believe is incorrect, you will need to contact your local campus Registrar's office or visit your local campus Enrollment Center for further assistance.
