Ivy Tech Community College and Indiana State University are expanding the Pathway to Blue program for the upcoming academic year. The invite-only program offers students a bridge from high school to ISU through Ivy Tech.
Ivy Tech says 32 students participated in orientation this summer to prepare for fall classes.
“Pathway to Blue leverages resources from Ivy Tech and ISU to increase student success and access to a quality four-year degree from our institution,” ISU President Dr. Deborah Curtis said. “We are thrilled to expand this important partnership with Ivy Tech and to welcome new students who will benefit from this program.”
Ivy Tech says Pathway to Blue students complete one year of coursework through Ivy Tech on Indiana State’s campus. Students gain admission to ISU after completing the Indiana College Core to earn 30 transferable credit hours.
Pathway to Blue students can choose to live on Indiana State’s campus while completing the program.
“The Pathway to Blue program continues Ivy Tech’s strong partnership with Indiana State,” said Dr. Lea Anne Crooks, Ivy Tech Terre Haute chancellor. “To carry out Ivy Tech’s vision of economic transformation, it is critical for us to work with West Central Indiana industry and university partners to build pathways leading students to careers or transfer.”
Ivy Tech says students who have applied to ISU and have an official transcript on file are notified of their eligibility.
