Dual Admission



Dual Admission is when a student starts working toward their associate degree at Ivy Tech and is simultaneously enrolled at a four-year partner college or university. In your first two years, you take Ivy Tech classes as you work on your associate degree while enjoying the on-campus activities and resources at the four-year partner institution where you will later earn your bachelor’s degree.

Participating College Partners

Currently, Ivy Tech has Dual Admission partnerships with two Indiana universities:


Save Money and Get Double the Resources

Starting your college career in this program allows you to save money (Ivy Tech classes are the least expensive higher education option in Indiana!) while enjoying the benefits and resources of both schools. Dual Admission programs get you access to resources at the partner school such as advisors, libraries, bookstores, athletic events, fitness centers, student activities, and on-campus housing. 

Start Your 4-Year College Experience Now

If you’re looking for that “four-year college experience,” you can enroll with one of our university partners and actually live on campus while taking classes at Ivy Tech for your first two years! Imagine saving money while immersing yourself in campus life at the school where you will get your four-year degree. Participating in a Dual Admission program also means you’ll have a seamless transfer to the partner school.
