The Honors Program Experience
Honors students enter into a tight-knit community of like-minded peers where they are provided with extra support. This allows them to successfully transfer and flourish at a four-year university. You see this community in the honors lounge, during class discussions, in honors council meetings, as well as during social events such as movie night.
Dedicated honors advisors work one-on-one with students, guiding them through course selection, a transfer plan, and financial aid options. Most Ivy Tech Honors students earn a Global Studies Certificate and participate in travel opportunities both in and outside the United States.
