The Associate Accelerated Program (ASAP) provides Ivy Tech Community College students with the opportunity to earn your degree and begin your career in one year or transfer your credits to a four-year college to continue your education. The choice is yours.
As an ASAP student, you will be encouraged to think of college as a job. In addition to obtaining knowledge and hands-on experience in an academic program, you'll be educated in areas that are critically important to employers, like time management and teamwork.
