Academic Flexibility: I'm unaware of the transferring credits process, but my experience with flexibility of the classrooms is an average review that I'd give. For curriculum I have had a few hassles or frustrations that i can think of, which mainly the one experience I can recall that stands out to me was something I'm petty sure nobody could necessarily control or prevent from becoming a frustration. I'm referring to a just recent change of the courses required to take in my major, which led me to have to switch my "title" of associates degree I am seeking, as well as added onto my amount of courses needed to complete in order to obtain either (2 available) degree. I was faced with having to decide on what classes to add to account for more credits, but also at such a close time when I only had a few classes left total. this was a bit frustrating and of course a little disappointing since I thought to be graduating sooner than I now will. With all that being mentioned I also feel I could have been more informed about my curriculum and/or what my courses would consist of, such as by my advisor.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Really my only complaint would have to be of two things...I never was told when I first started at Ivy Tech that if I were to attend Fall and Spring semesters and use financial aid, that then this would mean during the Summer courses (If I chose to apply) that i would then be left with zero aid and have to apply for a loan to cover my courses, books, etc. This was surprising to me, although I guess I understand the reasons and can't change this, but it is something I feel the wish for being different of course. I have to often apply for loans for my educational expenses, which is something I didn't want to have to do often through obtaining my degree, but then again that seems about impossible to think of as realistic, especially after being a full-time student now for over two years. I don;t know what i would have done if these loans were not an option. My only other "complaint" as far as financial topics go, would have to be that I believe there could be more scholarships, grants, etc. available and/or something within the school that considers students, like myself, that have young children and also that need childcare (and/or with thinking of assistance/options in this area). As far as the process goes for what is available through Ivy tech, this is very simple and works well within completing the actual process (not a difficult process and Ivy tech provides many different types of resources, links, etc. through the school/online that can answer any questions needed to be found if someone were to need help through this process).

Overall Experience: Courses offered seem to be what I'd assume as an appropriateness in availability/options. I feel most of my courses have been of good quality, although some online instructors could have communicated better. Overall, with courses that I have take, I can also say that I feel there could have been more within my actual work/assignments that would truly feel like I'm gaining more hands on experience in the field I'll be going into. I still find myself with a lot of questions and concerns too, yet I have been attending Ivy Tech for over two years.This makes me feel like I am missing out somehow, such as with the idea that many courses within my chosen major should, at some point (though the work, reading, instructor, etc.) be answering these questions/concerns, as well as these courses, I feel, should be providing the opportunity to learn through doing and then testing the knowledge. .

Overall Experience: Ivy Tech is always posting things online and getting information to the students about all the things they have going on and available to all students. I think there seems to be an appropriate amount of employers through Ivy tech and it is even more comforting to see that many have been there for years. With this being said, therefore brings pleasure to my mind when I may need assistance because when this is the case, I am comfortable in seeking assistance and feel as if I will be appropriately assisted by the experienced staff through my school. They also have a way of showing they really care and want to help you. More specifically in speaking on "staff" I am here, referring to non-instructors through Ivy Tech. In speaking of the instructors I have found this that I've said to unfortunately, only be a little over half way true. Even so for the case of speaking of the advisor's. In thinking of "quality" when it comes to these two I think there is a mixture through Ivy tech. I believe there are some excellent advisor's and instructors, but I have ran into just a few were I feel as if I wasn't receiving the best quality, communication, advise, etc.

Student Body: I believe that diversity is present in my school. Race and/or discrimination doesn't seem to be an existing issue and students seem very comfortable at Ivy Tech. I feel good when having to walk in the halls, be in a classroom, speak with others, etc. because it is very welcoming and the variety and diversity that does exist really helps to contribute to this. I don't think there is an issue with acceptance in regards to the diversity that exist in my school, at least not to my knowledge. When at Ivy Tech or in doing an online class even, I get the impression everyone seems comfortable in their own skin. It's even more nice at Ivy Tech and in doing online classes I can tell that mostly everyone is proud to express their differences or talk about about their own culture, background, and even ask questions about someone who's very different in any of these ways. I've always witnessed this to be done appropriately and the instructors are encouraging and supportive in all these regards.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: They have a student government group, but I do not pay attention to any events.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computers take a while to load. The network is pretty good.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Does not give me enough grants or scholarships. Still looks at my parent's income information, even though I do not live with them anymore.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Some of the professors would not write me back in a timely manner. Also, the professors were not flexible on the deadlines very much.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I was mostly an online student. Therefore, I do not know a lot about the academic flexibility at the actual school location. However, my online professors, were ok. Some of them responded within a timely manner and some of them took a while to respond.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I actually enjoyed my online math class that I took, I was very impressed and surprised that the teacher was actually communicating back with all of us and she even explained problems and made diagrams if something wasn't clicking.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Its okay. I'm dealing with it and carrying on. Would I do it again? No. Nothing unique or anything.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think its pretty bad I pay more for classes than what my brother does and he goes to an university and lives on campus. I also hate buying books that I can't get rid of afterwards

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I keep saying I like the school but most of the time I am frustrated with it. I hate the financial aid department, every time you fill it out it stays the same and every time they want the same paper every year. I wish I could fit more work into my schedule. I also don't like how there is only 1-2 teachers for higher up science or math programs. If you have a problem with one, you can't just skip on to a different teacher.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: My boyfriend has actually graduated and got a job and the people who help with that are awesome. They look everywhere for everything that can better you and put you where you need to go.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Never had issues with students, except medical. They are out for themselves and will stomp you to the point where your confidence is gone. If we are in this together might as well get along and help each other out because it makes everyone look bad if you don't.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I wish there was more areas to study and when I say study...I mean quiet and room to sit and not annoy others. Not even sure if we have a gym or sports. I like the family nights they offer. I dislike the food center because its all natural food (which isn't the problem) but its in bigger quantity's like for home based and its expensive.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Our computers at school suck. Majorly. They aren't fast even if your the only one on them in the entire school. Connection sucks. I had to buy my own computer to get things done.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I think Ivy Tech does a fantastic job with the medical programs. The teachers are great, the class room experience is awesome. Just wish I had time to also work and go to school.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The classes themselves is ok. Some of the teachers for like math or science courses makes you either feel like your wasting your time or want to quit. Attitude makes everything and if they can't keep up then they shouldn't teach. Registration is a joke, I have been doing it on my own for four years now, because some people don't even know what is offered at that school. Workload is normal and at a good level.
