Ivy Tech named to list

After undergoing state review, Ivy Tech Community College is on the Indiana Commission for Higher Education’s Preferred Provider List for High School delivery of dual or concurrent enrollment coursework. Indiana high schools are encouraged by the State Board of Education and Department of Education to partner with preferred providers when establishing dual credit agreements with postsecondary institutions, reports Kelly Hauflaire, assistant vice president of communications.

Inclusion on the list will provide support and encourage continued growth in student enrollment. In just five years, Ivy Tech’s dual credit enrollment has grown by more than 330 percent.

“We are extremely proud to be included on the Preferred Providers List,” says Dr. John Newby, the school’s K-12 initiatives assistant vice president. “As an institution, we are committed to meeting state standards and work diligently to ensure student success at every level. By getting students involved in our dual credit programs, families save money and Indiana students are able to get a head start on their college degree.”

Last year, Ivy Tech enrolled 37,505 Indiana high school students in dual credit, which saved Indiana parents more than $20.3 million in tuition costs and represented a 28 percent increase in students compared to the 29,357 high school students enrolled the previous year.

Ivy Tech’s dual credit program allows high school students to simultaneously earn both college credit at Ivy Tech and high school credit. Dual credit courses delivered in the high school by high school faculty are free to students, saving parents on their child’s college education.
