Strayer University has announced a new partnership with Ivy Tech Community College. Officials say it will allow Ivy Tech students pursuing an associate degree to earn a bachelor’s degree from Strayer University.
Strayer says it will offer students a more affordable four-year degree. The school says all eligible credits received for completed Ivy Tech coursework will transfer to Strayer and will count toward a bachelor’s degree. Strayer says it will offer Ivy Tech students a tuition rate that matches the out-of-state online costs they had at Ivy Tech.
The school says the partnership is part of the ‘StrayerComplete’ initiative, which offers innovative and alternative solutions for community college students to complete a four-year degree.
“The rising cost of college has long been a major barrier for adults wanting to pursue higher education. From our well-received Graduation Fund to our most recent Degrees@Work offering, Strayer University is committed to identifying affordable, flexible and innovative solutions that expand access and prepare students for the practical demands of the marketplace. Our unique relationship with Ivy Tech was conceived with this mission in mind, and we are thrilled to have them as a partner in our access and affordability efforts,” Strayer University President Brian Jones said.
“We are excited to provide our graduating students with this attractive option for completing their bachelor’s degree. Strayer University has a longstanding history of offering rigorous and relevant academic programs,” Ivy Tech President Thomas Snyder said.
Strayer University is a postsecondary higher education institution for working adults. The school has nearly 80 campus locations.
