The ABC program is a partnership between Indiana University South Bend in conjunction with the Ivy Tech Community College campuses in South Bend, Elkhart, and Warsaw.The ABC program represents a proven formula in higher education: 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.
The ABC program provides full-time Ivy Tech students with an excellent pathway to earn quality, accessible, and affordable associate and bachelor degrees which will increase their opportunities for a professional career. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain by enrolling in the ABC program. Enrollment does not limit transfer options in any way. In fact, if an Ivy Tech student decides to transfer to IU South Bend, they will have guaranteed admission and other advantages not available to non-ABC students. It is easy to enroll and it's free.
