University of Evansville and Ivy Tech announce dual admission partnership

January 5, 2019

MICHIGAN CITY — Beginning in January 2019, the University of Evansville and Ivy Tech Community College will partner to offer a dual admission program, which will offer students a structured, guaranteed pathway for attaining both a two- and four-year degree.

Students in any major who meet all dual admission program admission standards are guaranteed acceptance to UE and will receive an $18,000 per year scholarship toward UE tuition.

“We will provide a guaranteed transition from an Ivy Tech associate’s degree to a UE bachelor’s degree by providing one integrated curriculum plan right from the start,” said UE president Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz.

Dual admission program students will begin by taking classes at Ivy Tech Community College and will have access to all the benefits offered to UE students from the very beginning of their college career. They will have access to on-campus housing and will have full use of the UE library, computer labs, and other academic spaces. They will also have access to advising, student affairs, financial aid, and career services prior to full admission. Additionally, dual admission program students may attend student activities such as sporting and cultural events at both institutions.

“We are pleased to partner with UE to offer a seamless transition for our students who desire to continue their education after attaining their associate degree,” said Ivy Tech chancellor Jonathan Weinzapfel. “Through this partnership we are creating a different pathway; a different option for students to be successful. It is also very beneficial that our students will have the opportunity to access all student spaces on campus, including housing, from the beginning of their collegiate career.”

“Students will reap the benefits of both institutions during the entirety of their college career,” said Pietruszkiewicz. “Not only will course credits seamlessly transfer, but by having the support from both institutions and access to UE services and experiences from the beginning, it will allow for an easy personal transition as well.”

In addition to the dual admission program, UE and Ivy Tech have many articulation agreements in place to allow for an easy transition between institutions. Credits from Ivy Tech programs including engineering, nursing, education, criminal justice, and supply chain management are already automatically accepted at the University of Evansville toward completion of a four-year degree.
