Dual Credit Information for Principals, Counselors and Teachers
Last year, Ivy Tech's dual credit program saved Indiana families nearly $55 million in college tuition costs. Not only does it save money, it saves students' time by completing college classes early. After graduating from high school, students can continue taking classes at Ivy Tech and work towards a degree or certificate, or they may be able to transfer their credits to a different college or university.

Students can save up to $12,000 by completing their first two years at Ivy Tech and then transferring to a four-year college. When they enroll in one of the eligible degree programs, they can earn an associate degree from Ivy Tech and then transfer to any Indiana public four-year institution with automatic junior status.
Ivy Tech Community College’s Start as a Sophomore, also known as the Statewide Transfer General Education Core (STGEC), prepares students for a successful start to their associate degree with Ivy Tech and their bachelor's degree.
Formerly known as the Gen Ed Transfer Program, Start as A Sophomore allows students to begin their time at Ivy Tech with a 30-credit hour block that transfers to all other public four-year colleges in Indiana. The curriculum of these core classes is the same at Ivy Tech as the other institutions, but the tuition rate is less.
