Ivy Tech announces academic restructuring

INDIANAPOLIS — Ivy Tech Community College will restructure its academic divisions to better align programs with potential career and transfer tracks for students and aid in retaining students, the school said Thursday in a press release.

The new structure will divide the college’s academic programming into four distinct divisions and will take effect in fall 2014.

n The University and Transfer Division will include academic programs designed to transfer directly to a related baccalaureate program at a four-year college or university. Students who complete a program within the University and Transfer Division will earn the General Education Transfer Certificate and an associate degree in a chosen field of study.

n The Health Division will encompass all programs that prepare students for a recognized health license or certification. Most programs are selective admission with limited enrollment, and many programs will transfer to a baccalaureate program once the graduate is licensed or certified.

n The Business and Public Services Division will include programs designed to prepare graduates for immediate employment, and degrees awarded are primarily the Associate of Applied Science Most programs have related technical certificates that can be completed before the Associate of Applied Science, while some programs embed certifications; however, this coursework is typically elective and not required to meet degree requirements.

n The  Technology and Applied Sciences Division includes programs designed to prepare graduates for immediate employment or, in a select few programs, may prepare for transfer or employment. Technical certificate programs are the default enrollment option for the division, and most programs embed multiple nationally recognized certifications to prepare graduates to take exams upon completion.

For students who are undecided on their potential area of study or career track, Ivy Tech will implement meta-majors programming in which students select a broad category — such as STEM, Liberal Arts, Health Sciences or Education — in which to initially major.
