Set schedule
College for Working Adults works with your life and your schedule. Classes will meet on the same days and the same times throughout the entire program.

Relevant courses
You'll take classes designed to give you the skills employers want you to have.

Get a jump start with credit for prior learning
Work experience, military service, professional certifications, and technical training service in AmeriCorps or the Peace Corps are all examples of ways you may have developed the experience and knowledge needed to earn Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) credit. When you earn credit through PLA, you may save a significant amount of money and complete your degree more quickly. Learn more.

Classmates who work with you
College for Working Adults is designed in a cohort format - meaning that you will start and complete the program with the same group of students - students just like you. You will work on projects together, study together and celebrate each other's successes. Most importantly, you will learn from each others' experiences.

The support you need along the way
Ivy Tech has resources prepared especially for you. Think you might need a couple of refresher courses? Through one on one advising, we will help make sure you are getting started on the right track. Some locations offer remedial classes within the College for Working Adults program.

There will be an orientation exclusively for students like you. And if you are eligible for financial aid, most types of aid can be budgeted throughout the program.

Earn your degree and change your life
When you complete the program, you will have a degree from Ivy Tech - giving you increased earnings potential and opportunity for career advancement. With an associate degree from Ivy Tech, you'll earn an average of $7,000 more each year than you would with just a high school degree. Over the course of your career this could be a difference of up to $400,000.

Business Administration

Students take courses over five eight-week terms per calendar year. Classes are eight weeks long, and students take four classes per semester in the fall and spring and two classes in the summer. Classes are 'hybrid' in nature, which means students attend traditional lecture classes and have an Internet component as well. This blend of learning environments means students MUST have dependable access to a computer and high-speed Internet for assignments, class projects, and/or research.


What qualifies me for CWA?

Students must be 'program-ready' as indicated by pre-enrollment assessment scores, ACT or SAT scores, or transferable college credit. Students may be admitted to the CWA on a provisional basis if within one semester of completing remedial courses.

Because the CWA is designed to serve students' needs and help them overcome barriers to completing a degree, they are able to 'cycle' back into a degree program if a life event should happen and the need arises to stop attending classes. A student might have to take a traditional 16-week class, but within one semester will be back on track to earning a CWA associate degree.
