Ivy Tech Community College and University of Virginia announce new transfer partnership

Ivy Tech Community College and University of Virginia (UVA) are pleased to announce a new articulation agreement. This agreement allows Ivy Tech students who complete a designated pathway within the Liberal Arts Associate in Arts or Associate in Science program to complete an online Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) through the University of Virginia.

“The UVA and Ivy Tech Community College articulation agreement offers a designated pathway for Ivy Tech graduates to earn an online degree from one of the nation’s top public universities,” says Damon Wade, associate dean for student services and enrollment at the UVA School of Continuing and Professional Studies.

Ivy Tech students that meet the requirements would transfer to UVA as third-year students and complete 60 credits to earn the online BIS degree. This agreement provides a seamless, cost-effective pathway for students seeking degree-completion in a broad range of interdisciplinary education options, with concentrations ranging from cyber security to health care management.

This new transfer partnership is yet another great opportunity for Ivy Tech students to complete a four-year degree, particularly in our liberal arts area of study, “said Russ Baker, vice president of academic affairs, Ivy Tech Community College. “Partnerships with new universities such as University of Virginia give our students more options for continuing their education at prestigious universities without ever having to leave the state of Indiana. We are excited to add this agreement to our growing list of articulation partners from across the country.”
