Ivy Tech Lake County can help you achieve your dreams.

We are proud not only of the diversity of our programs, but also of our students and staff. All are welcome. We are here to help you succeed.

What Makes Our Campus Unique?

  • Three locations that share programs but also individually focus on specific academic areas: East Chicago, trades; Crown Point, nursing and health sciences; Gary, sciences. 
  • Our newly constructed welding lab in East Chicago makes sure students get the hands-on experience they need to succeed in this high-demand field. Simulation labs in Crown Point give students the feeling of working in an actual hospital or lab setting. State-of-the-art science labs at the Arts & Sciences Building on the IUN campus in Gary equip students to pursue further education in fields such as biology and chemistry
  • Partnerships with employers such as Cleveland Cliffs and Franciscan Health give our graduates an entryway into their career field
  • Strong ties to higher education partners such as Valparaiso University, Purdue University Northwest and Indiana University Northwest, among others
