It's possible to complete the first two years of a Purdue engineering degree at Ivy Tech and that's one of the best bachelor's degree programs in existence. A person who earns that degree is better qualified than about 98% of people who completed their entire degree a different four year school.
I certainly put more faith into Purdue than the questionable opinion of some anonymous person who claims to work in human resources.
While Purdue will accept credits from Ivy Tech I think you will find very few graduates from their engineering program began at Ivy Tech. With requirements of Calculus, Physics and Chemistry, Ivy Tech students barely can attend 3 weeks to get their financial aid refunds.

I would agree with that. The vast majority of people who earn engineering degrees from Purdue entered college straight out of high school and take all of their classes on campus in West Lafayette, Students are far more likely to take a class or two at community college over the summer than to take a full years worth of classes at Ivy Tech.

Ivy Tech's graduation rates are dismal because they have more remedial students who have no business being in college than students who are actually prepared for college.

Spot on. Unfortunately the school seems to attract those who are only in it for the financial aid. Those people bring down the level of instruction. It is frustrating for the serious students and the instructors. I was in one class where the student had no comprehension of punctuation. She literally did not know you used periods, commas, colons when writing a paper.
