IWU, Ivy Tech form partnership to make transferring to IWU seamless

Indiana Wesleyan University is pleased to announce a new transfer agreement with Ivy Tech Community College that provides seamless pathways for Ivy Tech students to easily transfer to IWU-Marion — the University’s residential campus in Marion, Indiana — upon completion of their associate degree. The agreement also provides the option to transfer to IWU-National & Global, which offers programs online and at education centers in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.

Ivy Tech students transferring to IWU-Marion may select one of nine available degree pathways, depending on the associate degree they have earned. A student’s entire associate degree and all prior credits will be eligible for transfer provided they are from a CHEA or DOE institution, a grade of “C” or higher was earned, and the courses were 100-level or higher.

While this is the first time IWU-Marion will be involved in a transfer agreement with Ivy Tech, it is the continuation of a preexisting partnership between Ivy Tech and IWU-National & Global.

“Our continued partnership with Ivy Tech is critical to our strategic goal of lowering student debt and optimizing transfer credits,” said Dr. Matt Lucas, chancellor, IWU-National & Global. “Like Ivy Tech, we want Hoosiers to be able to gain the education they need so they can pursue their dreams for their careers and families.”

“We are very excited to continue our partnership with IWU-National and Global, and expand the relationship to include IWU-Marion,” said Alex Huskey, chancellor of Ivy Tech’s Marion campus. “This provides another wonderful opportunity for students to have access to high quality education beyond their associate degree.”
