Taking Ivy Tech courses while in high school gives you the opportunity to explore future careers and discover your passion while earning college credit! You may even have the ability to complete the Indiana College Core or earn an associate degree before you graduate high school, saving you time and money.

Indiana College Core
The Indiana College Core ensures that your 30 hours of general education credit transfers between public colleges and universities. By completing this credential with Ivy Tech while you’re still in high school, you can guarantee that most, if not all, of your core college classes will already be completed by the time you begin college, regardless of what school you choose to attend.
Associate Degree
By working hard to earn your associate degree in high school, you will be ready to transition directly into the workforce and begin a fulfilling career after graduation, or you can seamlessly transfer to a four-year college or university and earn your bachelor’s degree in only two years, saving you thousands of dollars.
Ivy Tech has 20+ associate degrees that qualify for guaranteed admission to many other four-year institutions around the state.
Graduating High School Seniors (Class of 2024):
As a graduating senior, you may be planning on attending Ivy Tech or looking to head straight to a four-year institution.
