Academic Flexibility

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Some days I have to cancel important work or family related things, other days it's just the other way around.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: With the option of online classes, it is easy for me to still have my full time job and make time for doctors appointments and my child.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Scheduling classes has been a headache due to working full-time and being a mother. In my program especially courses fill up fast, there's a limited amount of classes teaching a course, and trying to take courses during the summer is stressful due to very limited options.

Academic Flexibility: For the most part, it's great. But, there are some classes that they only offer one or two of so you don't really get a selection if you have to take them...unless they offer it online and you are able to do online learning. That's something that I struggle with so I try to stay in classroom settings.

Academic Flexibility: Ivy Tech is extremely affordable and my professors have been amazing!! The financial aid process was absolutely terrible but it all worked out...eventually.

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.
