Agreement Establishes 2+2 Dual-Degree, Human Biology Program Between Two Institutions
(ST. LOUIS – January 19, 2022) – Logan University has partnered with Ivy Tech Community College in Indiana on an articulation agreement that establishes a 2+2 dual-degree between the two institutions.
The program makes it possible for qualified students to earn both an Associate of Science degree in Biology from Ivy Tech and a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from Logan’s College of Health Sciences seamlessly in four years. Logan’s nationally recognized Human Biology degree prepares students for a rewarding career in the health care or science workforce or to enter a graduate program in chiropractic, medicine, osteopathy, podiatry, pharmacy, optometry or dentistry.
“This agreement with Ivy Tech is extremely beneficial for students looking to start their education at a community college then transfer to a well-regarded health sciences university like Logan,” Logan President Clay McDonald, DC, MBA, JD said. “On average, transfer students from community colleges lose about 40% of their credits, which can set their path to graduation back by over a year. This 2+2 agreement ensures that students graduate on time with two highly-sought after degrees.”
“We are very excited to partner with Logan University to offer more in-demand career opportunities to our graduates,” said Ivy Tech Community College President Sue Ellspermann. “Agreements like these are pertinent to the success our students go on to achieve after their time at Ivy Tech.”
Under the provisions of this 2+2 program, qualified students must successfully complete 60 hours of required coursework in Ivy Tech’s associate of science degree program and will then be eligible for admission into the Bachelor of Science in Human Biology program at Logan University. Ivy Tech students are eligible for admission with junior standing to Logan University provided the student has submitted a complete application for admission to Logan, has earned a grade of “C” or better in all courses, and has a 2.0 or higher grade point average on a 4 point scale.
