A transfer student is any student who has college coursework at one institution and then transfers that coursework to another institution. As a transfer student, you may complete an associate degree or individual classes at Ivy Tech and then transfer to another college or university to continue your studies.
Ivy Tech is a community college that offers a variety of credentials ranging from workforce certifications to short-term certificates (known as certificates) to long-term certificates (known as technical certificates) to associate degrees. The highest degree you can earn at Ivy Tech is a two-year associate degree. At a four-year institution, you can earn a bachelor’s or advanced degree. A bachelor’s degree is an academic degree earned for an undergraduate major that generally takes four years of full-time study.
Ivy Tech offers a variety of transfer pathways to consider:
Ivy Tech offers the lowest college tuition in the state, making it Indiana's best value in higher education. Students who choose to start their college journey at Ivy Tech and then transfer to another college or university can save more than $10,000 on their bachelor's degree.

When deciding where to transfer, it's important to make sure that the credits you have earned are transferrable to that school and that the majors and degrees they offer are compatible with your Ivy Tech program. Transferring your Ivy Tech credits to another college or university has never been easier. In fact, more than 5,000 students transfer annually, and we’d love to help you become one of them this year. Many popular program areas have a large number of four-year partners, giving you the flexibility to choose between several institutions.

We aim to make transferring your credits to another school to continue your education as easy as possible. We've designed this Transfer Planning Guide to answer your questions regarding a transfer. This guide will help you plan your semesters, answer frequently asked questions, and provide some great resources to aid you in your transfer process.
We encourage you to use this workbook to organize your planning efforts; however, we also recommend having an ongoing conversation with your academic advisor and transfer advocate at Ivy Tech. In addition to making sure you are taking the appropriate course to achieve your degree goals at Ivy Tech, they can ensure that you are also taking the appropriate courses to achieve your college-transfer goals as well.
The Core Transfer Library is a list of 88 courses that are pre-approved for transfer between all Indiana public college and university campuses, in addition to six independent colleges and universities (assuming adequate grades were earned). Core Transfer Library courses will meet the general or free elective requirements of undergraduate degree programs and most will also count towards degree program requirements, if an equivalent course is taught at the four-year campus you plan to attend.
Ivy Tech does offer courses that may transfer to a select set or even a single college or university. See your academic advisor to learn more about these courses.
Before enrolling in courses at Ivy Tech, it is important to find out which course credits may transfer to or from other institutions. Use this helpful tool to find out how courses you have taken or plan to take may transfer to another college or university for credit.
