University of Evansville Strengthens Transfer Partnership with Ivy Tech Community College
Posted: Tuesday, April 14, 2015
The University of Evansville and Ivy Tech Community College have collaborated to streamline transfer opportunities for Ivy Tech graduates.
Ivy Tech students interested in transferring to the University of Evansville upon completion of their associate’s degree now have an added resource on campus. University of Evansville Admission Counselor Ashley Ross will now be housed at Ivy Tech’s main campus in Evansville one day a week. She will provide students with information and support regarding the transfer process to UE.
“We’re excited about strengthening our very good relationship with Ivy Tech,” says Dr. Tom Kazee, President of the University of Evansville. “We look forward to discussing credit transfer options and scholarship opportunities for those who complete an associate’s degree at Ivy Tech. We want to ensure a smooth transfer transition to UE.”
Traditionally, the majority of community college students transferring to the University of Evansville are Ivy Tech students. Ivy Tech has similar partnerships in place with the University of Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky University.
“We greatly value our relationship with the University of Evansville, as well as our other local higher education partners. Having a representative from UE on campus each week will now be another great benefit for Ivy Tech students,” said Ivy Tech Chancellor, Jonathan Weinzapfel. “Our partnership will make pursuing a bachelor’s or graduate degree at UE an attainable option for students seeking to continue their education after Ivy Tech.”
