ABC Program


The Dual Degree Program is a partnership between the Indiana University regional campuses in Gary, Kokomo and South Bend in conjunction with the Ivy Tech Community College campuses of northern and north central Indiana.

The Dual Degree Program represents the proven formula in higher education that students who earn an Associate’s degree at a community college are much more likely to go on to earn their Bachelor’s degree at a college or university.

Associate + Bachelor’s = Completion
= College degrees
= Career
