INDIANAPOLIS – Ivy Tech Community College is once again the top college choice for adult students with 83 percent of the state’s adult students choosing the community college.  Adult students are defined as those who enrolled in College but not immediately following their high school graduation.

A recent Indiana College Readiness Report released in February also indicated that nearly 28 percent of the high school graduates (9,458) that enrolled in public colleges or universities enrolled at Ivy Tech.

“Ivy Tech is committed to helping adult students reach their educational goals with a focus on affordability, flexibility and convenience,” said Thomas J. Snyder, President of Ivy Tech.  “No other college is prepared to meet the needs of adult students and provide the middle-skill jobs of the future.”

Ivy Tech Community College is the state’s largest public postsecondary institution and the nation’s largest singly accredited statewide community college system serving nearly 200,000 students annually.  Ivy Tech has campuses throughout Indiana. It serves as the state’s engine of workforce development, offering affordable degree programs and training that are aligned with the needs of its community along with courses and programs that transfer to other colleges and universities in Indiana.
