Fort Wayne, Ind.—Indiana Tech has established a scholarship program for Ivy Tech Community College graduates who enroll in a bachelor’s degree program.
Students who complete an associate degree at Ivy Tech with a GPA of 2.5 or higher will be eligible for a merit scholarship equal to a 20% discount on Indiana Tech undergraduate tuition. The Merit Scholarship for Ivy Tech Graduates is effective beginning January 2011, with students who graduate from Ivy Tech in December 2010 or later eligible for the program.
“Creating this scholarship rewards students who have proven they can be successful in college, and it encourages them to keep going,” said Steve Herendeen, vice president of the College of Professional Studies at Indiana Tech.
Indiana Tech offers bachelor’s degree programs in three basic formats: traditional, accelerated, and online. The Merit Scholarship for Ivy Tech Graduates is available to students in all three formats.
In the traditional format, undergraduate classes are offered during the day at the main campus in Fort Wayne, and each class lasts 15 weeks. Students can apply now to enroll in the spring semester in January or the fall semester in August.Indiana Tech’s College of Professional Studies offers the accelerated degree program in which classes meet one evening per week during a five-week session, enabling students to balance full-time enrollment with work and other responsibilities. There are nine five-week sessions each year, and students can apply now to begin in any session.
The College of Professional Studies (CPS) offers classes at the university’s main campus in Fort Wayne, as well as satellite facilities in Elkhart, Fishers, Greenwood, Huntington, Indianapolis, Kendallville, Mishawaka, Munster, New Albany, Plainfield, and Warsaw.
Online degree programs also use the accelerated pace of five-week undergraduate classes, but provide the added flexibility and convenience of students being able to access course materials anytime, anywhere they have broadband Internet access. Enrollment dates are the same as they are at CPS classroom sites, allowing students to easily combine online and classroom-based courses.
