As part of the University of Southern Indiana's (USI) mission by advancing education and knowledge and to facilitate the transfer of credits between institutions, USI has entered into formal agreements with participating state institutions in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky.
These formal agreements (known as articulation agreements) are joint partnerships between an academic program at USI and an academic program at the community college. Articulation agreements facilitate a student's successful transfer of credits while saving the student time, money and confusion.
Beginning in the fall of 2015, students who have earned an Associate of Science or Associate of Arts degree from Ivy Tech Community College or Vincennes University in certain programs may be able to follow a single articulation pathway to complete a bachelor's degree at USI. The Indiana Commission for Higher Education and Indiana state institutions are working together to allow students to complete a four-year degree program in corresponding programs without a loss of credit hours. Additional information on Senate Enrolled Act 182 and its implementation will be available over the coming year.
If you are unsure what credits may transfer to USI degree programs and what courses are needed to complete your degree, a Transfer Equivalency Self-Service (TESS) link is provided in the right column.
