Chancellor's Welcome

Chancellor Rita Hudson Shourds

Welcome to Ivy Tech Community College!
Ivy Tech is the Louisville region’s most affordable educational choice, and through our reciprocity agreements with the state of Kentucky, residents of Jefferson, Oldham, Meade and Bullitt counties in Kentucky can attend Ivy Tech at the in-state tuition rate.

Ivy Tech is a solid choice for students who plan to continue their education and receive a four-year degree. Transfer opportunities increase every year.

The campus is part of the Ivy Tech Community College system, the largest college in Indiana with more than 160,000 students enrolling each year on 23 campuses. Ivy Tech Southern Indiana enrollment surpassed 5,500 in 2011, an all-time enrollment record. We’re accommodating the growing student body with a new campus building, Ogle Hall.

Whatever your plans, please know that we’re here to help. If you need assistance with financial aid forms, applications, standardized tests or choosing a course of study, that’s our job. Our campus is brimming with experts in education who know how to handle virtually anything you’re facing and who consider it their calling to help you clear those hurdles with ease.

Thank you for placing your faith in us. Welcome – and enjoy this opportunity to grow and learn.


Dr. Rita Hudson Shourds
