Ivy Tech Articulation Agreement

Graduates of Ivy Tech Community College can now transfer to Earlham College and earn a bachelor’s degree in as little as two years.

Ivy Tech students who have earned an associate degree in biology, chemistry, computer science, business administration, psychology or human services can transfer to Earlham as juniors knowing every credit they have taken will count toward their degree requirements. In two years, and with an ordinary course load, you can graduate from Earlham with a corresponding bachelor’s degree in 


When combined with federal and state grants, as well as outside scholarships, Earlham can be just as affordable as a public university. 

Ivy Tech graduates admitted to Earlham are eligible for our Heartland Region Scholarship, which is worth $2,000 per year, up to four years.

Additionally, Ivy Tech graduates may be eligible for Earlham’s new INspire Earlham Program, which offers free tuition to Indiana students whose families are Pell and State of Indiana grant-eligible and earn up to $60,000 per year.

Earlham also offers up to $37,000 per year in merit-based aid for eligible students, helping students save considerably on the cost of tuition.

Why transfer to Earlham?

Earlham is among the first national liberal arts colleges to develop a strong partnership with a public community college, offering unprecedented learning opportunities for Ivy Tech graduates in their own backyard!

Earlham combines academic excellence with affordability to ensure you get the most out of your college experience. The Princeton Review ranks us in the nation’s Top 20 for best classroom experience and U.S. News and World Report includes us in its list of top values in higher education.

Earlham also provides you (and every student) an advantage very rare in higher education: a funded internship, faculty-student research experience or project before graduation.

Ivy Tech students at Earlham will benefit from a new initiative that significantly expands Earlham’s student advising resources and funds the development of a new “commuter lounge,” a space that will serve as an on-campus study space and home-away-from-home for non-residential students. This initiative, “Grow Where You’re Planted: Deepening Our Roots,” is supported by Lilly Endowment Inc.

How to apply?

Transfer students should apply through the Common Application. In addition to the application, you’ll need to submit high school transcripts, official college transcripts and an essay outlining your decision to transfer to Earlham.
