Ivy Tech Community College East Central Region will hold a Dual Credit Transition Event on August 13th at their Muncie Cowan Road location. Approximately 3,000 high school students are participating in the East Central Region’s Dual Credit program. Dual Credit is a program that allows high school students to remain in the high school classroom and earn credits toward both high school graduation and college, all while saving on the cost of college tuition.
The Dual Credit Transition Event gives high school seniors participating in Dual Credit the opportunity to learn more about the student experience, how to use the credits they have earned towards earning a degree or certificate from Ivy Tech, how to get a degree in one year instead of the traditional two-year track, and how Ivy Tech credits transfer to four year universities.
