IU Bloomington and Ivy Tech are trying to make it easier to transfer with a handful of new guaranteed admission agreements.
The deals will allow Ivy Tech students who have earned specific associate degrees to transfer as juniors and choose from among nine related programs at IU Bloomington: four in psychology, two in biology and one in elementary education, informatics and criminal justice.
Students who enrolled at Ivy Tech after June 1st of this year are eligible.
Each program has specific requirements for admission and the timing of when students may transfer — either the fall or spring terms.
According to each agreement, admitted students will be awarded at least 60 semester hours of credit toward their bachelor degree.
According to the agreements, the new pathways for transfer students are:
- Associate of Science in informatics to Bachelor of Science in informatics.
- Associate of Science in elementary education to Bachelor of Science in Education, elementary education.
- Associate of Science in criminal justice to Bachelor of Arts in criminal justice.
- Associate of Science in biology to Bachelor of Arts in biology or Bachelor of Science in biology.
