  • How Do I Qualify for Dual Credit Courses?

    Degree-seeking students enrolling in Ivy Tech Community College must complete the following steps AFTER applying to the college:

    1. Assessment:

    You can meet the assessment requirement in one of four ways:

    • SAT/ACT/PSAT Scores:
      • SAT: 27 in Writing, 25 in Reading, 460 in Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, 500 in Math or higher on each section
      • PSAT: 26 in Writing, 25 in Critical Reading, and 24.5 in Math or higher on each section
      • ACT: 17 in English, 18 in Reading, and 18 in Math or higher on each section
      • Click here to view older SAT and PSAT score ranges.
    • GPA: You can submit your high school transcript to fulfill the assessment requirement if you graduated high school within the last four years. You must have graduated from high school with a 2.6 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) AND have a CORE 40, Academic Honors, or Technical Honors endorsement or equivalent. Click here to find out where to submit your high school transcripts.
      • If you have not yet graduated from high school, you may use your cumulative GPA after six high school semesters have been completed.
    • Previous college courses or Associate Degree: The portal to upload documents will remain open until the last day of the term for which you applied to submit documents. Applicants will no longer have the option to mail their documents (SAT, transcripts, etc) for processing.

      You can return to your application by going to and clicking on the link under “Need to access an incomplete application or submit assessment documents?” You will need to enter your date of birth and the email address that you used on the application. You will receive further directives after entering in your information. You can also contact your campus Express Enrollment Center if you need further assistance accessing your application. Visit for more information.

      If you are unable to upload documents via the portal, you will need to visit the nearest Ivy Tech campus Express Enrollment Center. If at any point, it is passed the term you applied for, you will need to bring any assessment documents or transfer credit evaluation documents to the nearest Ivy Tech campus Express Enrollment Center. Express Enrollment Center hours and locations can be found at

      If the term you have applied for has ended and your application is now closed, it's preferred you bring your assessment documents to your advisor, Express Enrollment Center or Registrar's Office on campus. If you are unable to visit campus, you can then email assessment documents to your advisor.

      If your previous institution will not release your transcripts due to a balance owed, you will need to contact them directly to discuss a resolution. 

      *Documents received electronically with applications are not deemed official and can only be used for assessment. For credit evaluation, students must still present an official transcript.

    • Knowledge Assessment: If you cannot meet one of the above mentioned options, you will need to take a Knowledge Assessment exam. Knowledge Assessment is a free tool used to determine course placement. You can take Knowledge Assessment as many times as you need to in order to meet your academic goal.

    Both the Knowledge Assessment and Accuplacer are good for 4 years, regardless of which Ivy Tech campus you tested at.

    For more information on placement and/or Knowledge Assessment, please visit: "Will I need to take placement exams?"

    2. Advising:

    The academic advisor will be the student's primary point of contact at the college. The advisor will work with the student to develop an academic pathway to success. Students can learn more about advising, including the Advising Center hours of operation and how to schedule an appointment by visiting

    You will need to complete an assessment BEFORE you meet with an advisor.

    3. Orientation

    Orientation is your chance to learn where important places are around campus (i.e. library, bookstore, etc.), meet your classmates, find the perfect places to hang out, study and much more.  During orientation, you will take a campus tour and learn how to be successful when you start this semester.  It is a great opportunity to get to know your way around and ask questions. 

    If you are an Out-of-State student, In-Person Orientation is an optional step and you can complete these after you start classes. You will need to contact your region to talk through what dates work best.

    Visit the link above or a list of times it is offered on your campus.  It is highly recommended that students complete In-Person Orientation. 

    In addition to completing the required enrollment steps, students seeking to use financial aid must complete the FAFSA at Ivy Tech’s school code is 009917. This code applies to all Ivy Tech campuses.

  • What is the FAFSA?

    The FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is a form that must be submitted annually in order to apply for financial aid. The easiest way to file the FAFSA is online at After filing your FAFSA, your college will be able to tell you which scholarships and grants you could receive as well as how much money you can borrow in student loans.

    What is the deadline?

    You can file the FAFSA beginning October 1. Be sure to get your FAFSA filed no later than April 15 to be considered for state grant programs. FAFSAs submitted after April 15 will not be considered for state grants, and corrections must be completed by May 15. FAFSAs filed after April 15 will still allow students to qualify for federal and institutional aid.

    Why do I need to file my taxes before filing a FAFSA?

    Filing your taxes before you complete your FAFSA will allow you to use the IRS data retrieval tool - making completion quick and easy. The IRS data retrieval tool reduces errors and the likelihood of being selected for verification by directly importing the correct tax information onto the FAFSA.

    Who should file the FAFSA?

    Anyone seeking aid for upcoming school semesters should file the FAFSA. Even if you're not sure if you will enroll, or you are currently in college - filing the FAFSA ensures you have the opportunity for aid if needed.

    What information do I need in order to file the FAFSA?

    If you are under age 24, you will need your parents’ information as well as your own. The information you will need for the FAFSA includes:

    • Your Social Security Number (or alien registration number/permanent resident card, if you’re not a U. S. Citizen)
    • Your driver’s license number, if you have one
    • Your tax return information or records of earnings (and W-2 forms), and recent bank statements
    • Some students will need to include parent information on their FAFSA.  Click here to see the federal definition of dependency status for financial aid purposes.

    Here are just a few:

    • You will be able to take the course from the safety of your home.

    IvyOnline is how certain online Ivy Tech Community College courses are being offered, beginning Fall 2019 semester.

It’s a win-win because you get the course you need and Ivy Tech instructors get online classes full of eager students.

    Ivy Tech offers over 300 courses online – and this number is growing all the time. You can view available online courses in MyIvy. You can even earn your degree online. Visit for list of online programs and visit for a list of online courses.

    When applying for admission, students who are online degree-seeking and are not online Ohio students, should select the campus associated with program that the student wishes to pursue. 

    I'm not sure online learning is right for me. Can you help me decide?

    If you use the following phrases to describe yourself, then an online class may be an excellent choice for you:

    • I enjoy learning independently but am comfortable asking an instructor for help if I don't understand something.
    • I am organized and maintain a schedule of all the things I need to get done. I don't generally need to be reminded to complete things on time or even a little early.
    • I am comfortable using a computer and the Internet to do things like viewing a web page, sending and reading email, typing papers in a word processing program, and finding information on the Internet.
    • I learn well from reading and reflecting on what I have read. I don't need to listen to a lecture to help me understand course content.
    • I have at least six hours to devote to each course I am taking and can make more time if needed.

    What is the difference between a degree and a certificate?

    Certificates are sequences of technical and professional courses that are industry focused and designed for workforce preparation.

    The Associate of Science, Associate of Arts, Associate of General Studies, Associate of Applied Science and Associate of Fine Arts are two-year degree programs.

  • What is Reverse Transfer?

    Reverse Transfer is a process by which students pursuing a four-year degree could be eligible for an associate degree in general studies or a liberal arts program from Ivy Tech based on a combination of your previous work at Ivy Tech and current course work.

    What are the benefits?

    There are many benefits to earning your associate degree. Many employers offer raises or promotions for college degrees earned. In addition, several four year universities offer tuition discounts to students who have earned an associate degree. Please check with your employer or your current college/university to learn more about the benefits you could receive by earning your associate degree at Ivy Tech.

    Am I Eligible for Reverse Transfer?

    You may be eligible if you have completed 15 credit hours at Ivy Tech, have a GPA of 2.0 or higher at Ivy Tech, and have completed more than 60 applicable credits through Ivy Tech or other colleges/universities. If you are pursuing a bachelor’s degree or have recently attended another college or university, you may be eligible, as long as you have not yet received your associate or bachelor’s degree.

    What do I need to do next?

    First, complete the simple online form found here to indicate your interest in Reverse Transfer.

    Next, you must have your college or university transcripts sent to Ivy Tech. Please send them to the address below:

    • NOTE: Students may put in any four digits they wish in the SSN field; so if an International student does not have a SSN they can still use Parchment and use any 4 numbers. The request will then be manually processed by the Student Records office, so International students should assume a slight delay of a day or so in processing.
    • Should you need to contact Parchment Exchange, please visit their website and submit a HelpDesk ticket.

    If you receive a "no student record found" message when requesting your transcript: 

    • All of your information that you provide to locate your student records must match what we have on file for you in our system. If you received a message that your student record couldn't be found, it usually means that the birth date you submitted on your transcript request does not match what we have in our system. Try re-submitting your request, and pay particular attention to the birth date you submit - make sure the month and day are entered in the correct order, and that the year is not the current year, but your birth year.
    • If you still receive a message that your record cannot be found, please bring documentation of your name and birth date (like a driver's license) to the nearest Ivy Tech campus and ask the Registrar's Office or Local Enrollment Center to verify the name and birth date they have on file for you. If any information needs to be changed in our records, once it is changed you should be able to request a transcript.

    *You can also obtain a request form at your local campus Registrar's Office.

    ***You can pay for for transcripts using these payment methods. The cost of the transcript is $5.00.

    Once you have submitted your request:

    • You can track your order by logging in to the account you created with Parchment to request your transcript. You can also opt to receive updates via text message concerning your transcript order.
    • Should you need to contact Parchment Exchange, please visit their website and submit a HelpDesk ticket.

    If you are awaiting final grades or a degree to post:

    • Please verify on MyIvy that your grades and/or degree have been posted to your unofficial transcript there BEFORE requesting an official transcript.
      • Grades - Are due to be posted within 3 calendar days of the end of the semester or abbreviated session.
      • Degree - It takes 60-90 days from your graduation date to receive your diploma and to be listed as a graduate on your official transcripts.

    If you requested an electronic transcript:

    • If you have requested an electronic copy of your transcript to be e-mailed to you or to another recipient, those requests are usually processed within the hour of the request (Monday-Friday only). Weekend requests are processed on Monday morning. Printed transcripts are usually sent the day the request is received (Monday-Friday), with weekend orders processed on Monday morning.

    • Note: For electronic transcripts, you will be asked to attach any documents at the point you are requesting the transcript online. If you need a transcript mailed and need attachments to go with it, you will need to contact the nearest campus to process the request in-person. The contact information is available at

    *You should contact your campus to see if requests are being processed same-day for transcripts prior to coming to campus. Electronic transcripts can be received within 30 minutes of request.

    If you are inquiring about your Ivy Tech transcripts being received by another institution, you will need to contact that institution.

    Unofficial Transcripts
    The unofficial transcript lists term-by-term work taken at Ivy Tech. For example, Zero Level/Refresher courses are on both the official and unofficial transcript. However, zero-level/refresher courses do not count toward graduation credits nor in a student's GPA.

    *Non-credit courses will not show up on these transcripts. To request a transcript with this information, please contact your campus. The contact information is available at

    How do you send a transcript to Ivy Tech?
