Ivy Tech and Marian University Announce Partnership

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

A new partnership between Ivy Tech Community College and Marian University will allow students to transfer from Associate of Science to Bachelor of Science degree programs. The 2+2 program allows students to complete the first two years and earn an Ivy Tech Associate of Science degree then transfer credits to Marian to complete a Bachelor of Science in two more years. 

The program is the first between the schools, but the two institutions did partner earlier this year on a reverse transfer agreement.

“These new 2+2 options not only help Ivy Tech students identify a clear, affordable path toward a bachelor’s degree, but they strengthen long-term earning potential. In 2017, the average weekly salary for workers with an associate degree was $836 compared to $1,173 for those with a bachelor’s degree. By enabling Ivy Tech graduates to continue their educations, we enhance their ability to provide a good living for themselves and their families. We look forward to continuing discussions with Ivy Tech in the future about additional partnerships,” Studebaker added.

Ivy Tech students who complete their business administration degree will be able to transfer credits to a Bachelor of Science degree at Marian in business analytics, finance, management, or marketing. Ivy Tech students who complete an Associate of Science degree in psychology will be able to transfer into the Marian Bachelor of Science program.
