Class Formats

Ivy Tech Mortuary Science program courses are taught in a traditional, in-person format and through hybrid (blended or learn anywhere) instruction.

Apply to Ivy Tech First

Students interested in the Mortuary Science program must first submit the Ivy Tech general application and complete requirements for admission to the college. During this application, you should apply as undeclared/undecided program with an interest in Mortuary Science. Admission to the college does not ensure acceptance to the Mortuary Science program, but students can be working on prerequisite courses after admission to the college and before applying to the program itself.

Apply to the Mortuary Science Program

Following completion of prerequisite courses, you may apply for the Mortuary Science program by submitting an admission packet. The program evaluates application packets and admits students during the spring semester ahead of Mortuary Science Core Courses beginning in the summer.

The application deadline for the 2023 cohort is March 31, 2023.

Each admission packet must be submitted in a three-ring binder and should include:

  • Binder cover with the words "Application Packet for Mortuary Science" on it along with your name and the date of submission
  • Application form (Print page 27 of the application packet)
  • Unofficial copies of all previous college transcripts, including Ivy Tech transcript
  • An official copy of your High School transcripts or GED certification sealed.

Hand-delivered application packets must be in the mortuary science office no later than the due date. If mailed, the packet must be postmarked by the due date. All information on the application must be completed and all requested documents must be included for the application to be considered complete and valid. Late, unsigned, incomplete/invalid applications may be rejected without notice to the student.

Considerations for Transfer Students

Students transferring from another college or university (including a different Ivy Tech Region) must apply for and be accepted into Ivy Tech Community College Central Indiana (Indianapolis). Official college transcripts from all other educational institutions (Ivy Tech excluded) must be mailed to the Ivy Tech Community College Office of the Registrar and be evaluated prior to program application. The transcripts must be mailed from the educational institution or walked into the registrar in a sealed envelope. It is the responsibility of the student to provide a course catalog and course syllabi when necessary to evaluate transfer credit. Students should plan to send the transcript a minimum of 90 days prior to application to the Mortuary Science program. Students are also expected to meet with the Mortuary Science Program Chair prior to application.

Questions concerning transfer credit may be directed to the Office of the Registrar.

What If I Don’t Get Admitted?

The Mortuary Science program maintains a waitlist, so it's possible you could be added to the program after this initial application process. However, we welcome all non-admitted applicants to reapply in the next semester’s application cycle. You may also want to meet with your advisor to discuss how to make your application more competitive.

What is Selective Admission? 

The Mortuary Science program is a selective admissions program. Due to the equipment and practicum partner sites required for training, we are only able to accept a small number of students each year.

After a student meets the program admission criteria (outlined below), they must remain in good academic standing so they can register for required program-level courses and become eligible to engage in practical learning at practicum partner sites. Students also need to understand that the practicum site owners and/or embalming preceptors, and not the College, control the practicum settings and who is permitted to use them.

Scoring for Program Acceptance

A weighted point system is used to evaluate applicants for admission. Students must carry a minimum cumulative grade point of 2.5 to be eligible for program acceptance. Student applications are assigned points based on their grades in prerequisite courses. Point totals for applicants receiving admission offers will vary between campuses. Point totals are not shared.

Letter grades received in the prerequisite courses will be assigned a numeric value and the total point value will be calculated. Students with the highest point value will be admitted into the program. Please understand, only prerequisite courses that have been completed will be assigned a point value. Prerequisite courses in progress, will not count toward the overall point value because there will not be a final grade assigned to them. You are encouraged to apply to the program and may be accepted into the program, with the condition that you complete the in-progress courses successfully and maintain a grade point average of 2.5 or higher, but no points will be awarded to in progress courses.

If a course is taken more than once, the highest grade will be used to calculate the overall student score, but the original grade will be reflected in the student’s overall grade point average.

Students with the highest total score will be admitted into the program until the program reaches maximum enrollment of 30 students. Students who are not accepted into the program may be put on a waiting list, or may reapply for program acceptance for the following year. Students reapplying to the Mortuary Science program must resubmit the application packet in full.

Course Points Awarded by Grade

  • MORT 100 Orientation to Funeral Service
  • MATH 123 Quantitative Reasoning
  • A = 6 points
  • B = 4 points

  • B = 2 points
  • C = 1 points
  • D = 0 points and recommend retaking
  • F = Course must be retaken

Tie Breaker
