Purdue University Global and Ivy Tech Community College say they are adjusting their existing partnership to include an admissions agreement that will provide a pathway for transfer students. The partners say the goal is to provide a more seamless transition for thousands of students looking to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Purdue says students graduating from Ivy Tech with an Indiana Transfer Single Articulation Pathway associate degree are eligible to receive a guaranteed articulation of credit into the related bachelor’s program at Purdue University Global.
The schools say there are seven TSAP areas of study that align with Purdue Global curricula: business administration, computer science, criminal justice, human services, information technology, nursing and psychology.
All TSAP associate degrees include the Statewide Transfer General Education Core. Therefore, the schools say students will have all of their standard bachelor’s program general education requirements fulfilled by the TSAP associate degree.
“This expanded articulation agreement guarantees that students will seamlessly transfer as a junior,” said Ivy Tech President Sue Ellspermann. “But a unique benefit is that after students transfer to Purdue Global, they will still have some electives. This provides more flexibility than transfer pathways typically offer.”
TSAP is a statewide program to standardize the transferability of a completed associate degree toward a related bachelor’s program.
