I know they graduated someone who did not complete all the requirements just to get the numbers up. I guess is would have been lower than 9% if that didn't happen.

I believe it! This school gets the students that had no desire to learn in highschool, but know that they need a degree offered from IvyTech to help them from being a burger flipper. Although it is affordable, this is what the student can afford since the job they will get after completing Ivy Tech pretty much meets with the students salary. IU focuses on the bigger and better jobs and yes these jobs can help pay off college cost, if the student plays their cards right. These students worked hard to get into IU and deserve the better jobs.
By the way the nursing program is terrible! Take a step into Bloomington hospital and you will understand. Just saying. Look around, work hard because this world does not have much to offer these days with the bad economy.

A lot of the "faculty" members there need to get more training. Almost all, or maybe all of them, are on contract and have degrees that don't relate to what they teach. Some got their degrees on-line too.

Good point! Shows why the education is a mess there. Teach what you know, or don't teach at all.

I heard the graduation rate is not very improved this year either. i'm sure they are scrabbling to manipulate the numbers again so it doesn't look at bad. maybe they will have a 10% graduation rate this year - HAHAHAHA.

Push your kids to do good in high school to get into a 4 year college. Start saving and find funding to get your child through a good college in order to make it in todays world. Encourge them to make a wise choices to pick a path to a career that will be stable. Ivy Tech will not get the student far in life with an AA degree unless the student is focused and continues on to IU or another college with his or hers studies at a college to achieve a BA degree. My best to all of the up and coming students.

I would never allow my kids to go here. A penny saved here is money which could have gone to a productive 4 year degree. Yes, students can transfer but do they then graduate from 4 year schools? Doubtful, when only 9% of them get to the end of the 2 year program. The culture at Ivy Tech does not promote student graduation.

You think! Not! The truth has been spoken in all of the post. Think about it and figure it out. 99.9% of the students struggled in school or they were lazy inwhich that continues into Ivey Tech. Or the students got through high school with a "very low" GPA. There could be that 1% that is successful but I have yet to hear the results.
I was told info by a nurse in an Indianapolis hospital that went to Ball State. She stated that she was in a room with Ivy Tech nursing students and they had to answer questions. The Ball State students knew the material. Speaks volumes! I can see the difference between this nurse that was serious in high school and got into a four year college compared to the two year college.
Also, maybe the parents can not afford a four year college for their child and the student has to attend Ivy Tech. I hope that the student can follow their dream and have a great future. Good luck students and work hard the future is challenging and other countries are taking our jobs.

If you are going to post to a site please get your facts straight. Ivy Tech has students from all walks of life not just people that did poorly in high school. The school is composed of mostly non-traditional students and they have a lot of reasons for not being able to complete their education. They have families, full time jobs, elder care responsibilities and the list goes on and on. Ivy Tech has several International students as well as several matriculation agreements with Indiana schools. The curriculum is vigorous enough to allow you to transfer to any 4 year college if you work hard and make the grades. A parent and wife of Ivy Tech Community students.

Those transfer programs are brought up all the time but who makes it to the point they can transfer??? Also, how many are successful once they transfer??? Better yet, how much debt do they have when they transfer? Better still, what is Ivy Tech's graduation rate this year????? Does anyone know? Does anyone audit Ivy Tech to make sure they aren't doctoring the numbers as described above too?

What is your husband going to do after graduating from Ivy Tech? Will he continue with his child to a four year college? Why didn't your child go to a four year college? We all know that this is where student go if they do not get in a four year program. One thing is not completing education like you mention do to family, full time jobs, etc. But students coming out of high school would not have a lot of these problems. Ivy Tech prevents students from being the burger flipper or the garbage collector although I have a lot of respect for them willing to work. There are students that struggle in school and ivy Tech would be a resource for help since they take the strugglers and test them to place them in the correct class. Good luck to your husband and child at Ivy Tech.
