3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I take strictly online classes so my schedule is completely flexible and some of my teachers allow us to work ahead which also helps on weeks were I am extremely busy or just have extra time to keep working. I have only had one class transferred to this school and they excepted the credits for the class just as they said they would, it just took a few weeks to get into the system.

Academic Flexibility: the teachers are nice and very flexible but strict. They dont let us slack off. one of my instructors only allows 5min and your assignments are late and no longer accepted.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I was a transfer student and my college credits transferred easily. The teachers always have time for the students and offer appointments for different time if we we need to have one on one.

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.

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

The flexibility of classes is great. Classes range in days and times to accommodate everyone. You can take online classes, as well. The school even has flex courses that take half a semester.

All of your credits transfer to the Indiana University you want to attend after Ivy Tech. It doesn't matter if you work during the day, have kids, or want a traditional schedule; Ivy Tech has the classes for you. They have night classes, weekend classes, and classes at various other days and times.
