3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Ivy Tech has some issues with financial aid process because even if someone submits things on time or fax them mandatory information like taxes, the school still asks for more verification. When I was going through the process some of the financial aid representatives had no idea about how to help me.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I enjoy doing online courses but in some sections I feel like I am teaching myself. On the other hand, the online courses at ivy Tech are very convenient and the teachers pushes us to do discussion boards to get acquainted with our fellow students.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Ivy Tech has great faculty and student services .The classes are small and the professors are polite and helpful. Ivy Tech's student services offers a variety of help for during school and after graduation.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: If all you want is education this is an inexpensive option with the same online courses you will find at any online class in the state. If you want a degree, stay away from Ivy Tech. They do not know how to help you get there. The advisers do not even know the school's requirements. They appear to have no training in communication or professionalism. I love learning. I can do that without their help.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online classes meet my needs and I have found that it is best not to expect much help from professors as they tend to not answer emails, and are slow to grade, with a few exceptions. I've had two instructors that seemed to really enjoy their subject matter. I've mostly had professors who don't seem to care and do not respond or interact with students unless they have to. I've had several instructors who do not know how to communicate online at all.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process has been easy for me. I fill out my FAFSA each year and I am done. However, had I known I could not get the information I needed to take the correct classes I would have paid more at another institution. I don't want to waste money and time on the wrong classes. I have not had to contact the financial aid office but if they are anything like the rest of the staff it wouldn't do any good to contact them anyway.

College Junior

Facilities: There does not seem to be anything unique about Ivy Tech except the cost, which was rated in another area and this is less impressive when you realize you get what you pay for. I have never met such rude and unprofessional people as I have encountered in the advisers at Ivy Tech.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: This has been the most inconvenient and worst educational experience of my life. I have been attempting to get advice from an advisor since I started school in 2012. I've spoken to 12 different people. Those who have responded at all have been rude, and the answers have been inconsistent and incomplete. Everyone that I know personally who has attended Ivy Tech got to their last semester and were told there was "one more class" they had to take that they had previously been told they did not have to take. I can understand why as I have been given so many answers it makes my head spin. The advisers seem to have no clue what they are doing. I am constantly being transferred to someone else with no end in site. I have a 3.9 gpa I have earned all A's and 1 B and I will not graduate from Ivy Tech because no one seems to know what classes I need or how to fix problems with registration. Some of the instructors are wonderful and the classes are mostly statewide standard and easy to transfer but the advising department is the worst. Do not expect advice.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: I cannot get anyone to discuss my academic program with me so I am not sure how I could discuss it with anyone else. I realize my chosen degree path is unique and can cause confusion. I want to earn a Liberal Arts degree so I can transfer to a four year institution (The comment about it being unique and causing confusion was sarcasm). Is it really that difficult to tell me what classes I need to take in order to earn this degree? I've spoken to 12 different advisers and program chairs for the past year and five months and apparently this is the best kept secret in the school.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Most of the professors are just okay. Many do not know how to communicate online and will not answer emails. I've taken 11 classes and I've earned 10 A's and 1 B. In at least three classes I had to "babysit" the instructor who would not bother to actually read my homework but would mark down my score saying I didn't include something and I would point out that I did and they would change my grade. In one case in particular I found out the professor marked everyone down two points and put the same comment on every assignment. I guess he thought no one would notice. One instructor failed to open the discussion board three weeks in a row and then did not give extra time for posting discussions which should have been done three times a week. The curriculum is standard though.

3 College Junior

Student Body: I only know people through the online discussion boards. Honestly I am shocked at the lack of education frequently displayed in these discussion boards. It would appear that many students would not pass a grade school grammar class and I have no idea what they are doing in a college course.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not used this but considering how poor the staff's performance has been while in school I can't imagine it would be good once a student has finished school

College Junior

Campus Resources: I have not used the student center or visited the campus

College Junior

Campus Resources: I have not used the computer labs or printing or network on campus

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have found the flexibility of the classes very convenient for me to find classes that fit into my schedule.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My major is Human Services. I like the program here because it is very informative, and thorough. They teach us more than actually necessary to receive an Associate's degree which makes us more successful when we pursue a career or Bachelor's degree.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Everything at Ivy Tech flow very well together. I have found the process of class registration easy to understand. Even though, I inadvertently signed up for two eight week courses, I still was able to complete all my assignments and receive the information being taught. I have had pleasant experiences in all of my courses.

5 College Junior

Facilities: I love attending IVY Tech. There are different fun interactive activities available around campus and most of them are free. There are discount ticket offers for otherwise expensive activities that students get to take advantage of. The instructors are very open and friendly. They provide positive feedback to how you are doing in class. I was nervous about returning to school but have felt very welcome and uplifted being here.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It has always been my life long dream to attend college. Due to personal circumstances, I was not able to attend college, when I was younger. Now that I have two older children, I want to be the example for my children to follow. I want them to know that it is never to late to follow your dreams and learn the importance of hard work and an education. I have maintained a 4.0 GPA for 3 semesters. I have made the Dean's List twice and joined Phi Theta Kappa and plan to transfer for a bachelor's degree. I hope one day my children will do the same. Ivy Tech has made this possible for me.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Career services help students evaluate how their personal strengths and weakness will pertain to the jobs they are seeking. They help students prepare resumes and help guide them in filling out applications. In addition, career services help students prepare for job interviews and offers current and up-to-date job postings.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Overall, I have had some flexibility in scheduling classes, but I have had issues with having to choose one of two classes due to the course schedules overlapping. Some classes have limited availability, when the are more degree specific. The general courses offer more options. Also, I was disappointed that a couple of the courses I wanted to take for my degree were not an option due to limited financial aid and transferability of the credits.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I prefer to take traditional classes, but I have attend one hybrid class and plan to take a couple upcoming classes online. I do like the flexibility the online class offers, but I personally prefer the face-to-face interaction.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The school offers a free shuttle between the downtown Indianapolis campus and the Lawrence campus, and the study abroad opportunities are a great chance to experience other cultures.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition costs are much less than a student would pay at another institution. Financial aid is available and may include federal and state grants. I've had no problems in applying for financial aide, but I would recommend that students apply early and keep track of deadlines. The deadlines for FASFA is usually several months before school begins. It is wise to plan ahead.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Ivy Tech has onsite fitness classes for students. The school has several break areas and a food court. There is a library on site as well as a virtual library containing a wide selection of resources. The school's theater performs one play each semester. Students are often privileged to receive discount tickets to a variety of special events and are offered many opportunities to participate in community services.
