Ivy Tech Community College and Franklin College have teamed up to offer an accelerated pathway to a bachelor’s degree. The College’s Associate Accelerated Program allows students an opportunity to earn an associate degree and a four-year bachelor’s degree in three years.
Beginning this fall, Ivy Tech students who earned a liberal arts associate degree through the ASAP program can transfer credits to Franklin College to complete one of 17 liberal arts bachelor’s degrees in two years. The schools say students of the program are guaranteed admission to certain Franklin programs through the Guaranteed Admission Articulation Agreement.
“Our ASAP program has served as an innovative and inspiring format to help our most driven students earn their associate degree in less than one year. Pairing it with a prestigious bachelor’s degree program at Franklin College will guarantee our students have the opportunity to continue their education, reach their academic goals, and prepare to succeed in their careers. We are grateful for Franklin’s partnership and the benefits this pathway will provide our students,” said Ivy Tech President Dr. Sue Elspermann.
The ASAP coursework is offered over five eight-week terms, with classes being held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m Monday through Friday.
