Community College

Community College

Today's community college's have more to offer than 2-year associate degrees. Today's community college's are more than just a stepping stone to your 4-year degree. 

Today's community college experience allows student to earn not just associate degrees, but also flexibility, affordability, certificates and workforce training that matters in today's career landscape. In fact, on average, a student with an associate degree earns more than $10,000 more than someone with a high school diploma. 

And here in our region, we have Ivy Tech, which is the nation's largest singly-accredited community college in the country and a fantastic resource to northeast Indiana.
