The school is perfect for those who wants to start small. Having just recently migrated from Africa, I had neither SAT or ACT score. my options were limited but the school gave me an opportunity to start my American educational journey. The academic environment is welcoming, the professors are friendly and the administration staffs are attentive. The school curriculum is top notched and tedious. You have to be motivated to do well like in every other good school. The class is also small so you are able to learn well and make good connections with the professors and your classmate. I have met really good friends which has made my time here fun. There are also students and academic societies like ivy honors and the phi theta kappa. The school is not as expensive as other schools. Financial aid is available for most students. All of my friends gets financial aid. The school is located in a very safe small town in crown point.

The online experience at ivy tech is very good. The teachers are engaging and mostly available to answer any questions the student may have. It is occasionally difficult to reach the teacher via phone or email, but the teachers are very invested in their students and put in a lot of hard work to help them succeed. The curriculum is also fairly straightforward and the workload is manageable. The platform upon which the coursework is based takes a few days to adjust to, but is overall easy to use.
This is a good option for those who would like to return to college and further their career. It is reasonably priced. I was not happy with the amount of help I received. No one goes out of their way to make sure you completely understand what you need to do. They just seem to want you to enroll and pay. After that I couldn't get my counsler to email me back with answers as to if I was enrolled in the correct classes! Teachers were great but I needed a college that wanted me to succeed. Not just wanted my money.
