IU Northwest offers spring classes at Academic Learning Center in Merrillville

IU Northwest will offer Spring 2006 classes at the Academic Learning Center located on Broadway and 101st Street in Merrillville. Students can take introductory to upper-level classes in a variety of concentrations. Classes such as Interpersonal Communications, American History, Pre-Calculus Mathematics, Intro Accounting and American Criminal Justice are just a few of the types of courses that will now be conveniently offered at the Center.

This joint effort with Purdue University Calumet is yet another way that IU Northwest is making a quality education possible for those who live far from campus or who have varied schedules. In addition to this facility and the Gary campus, classes are also offered at the IU Northwest Portage Instructional Site in Portage, thus allowing IU Northwest to reach students all over the region.

The center, which is operated by Purdue University Calumet (PUC), offers students the opportunity to attend classes in a modern, technologically advanced learning environment, while staying close to home. The Academic Learning Center, with accommodations for 1,500 students, features 20 classrooms, four computer laboratories, two student study areas and four small conference rooms. It is situated on Purdue Research Foundation-owned land adjacent to the Purdue Technology Center of Northwest Indiana—some two miles south of U.S. Highway 30, just east of Broadway Avenue, north of 101st Street.

Registration is currently underway, but it’s not too late to enroll for the spring semester, which begins January 7, 2006. Current students can register now at If you are not a current student, please call the IU Northwest Admissions Office today at 1-888-YOUR-IUN or log on to for more information.
