Indiana College Core (ICC)
Students enrolled at USI wishing to satisfy Indiana's 30 credit-hour Indiana College Core (ICC) must complete a minimum of three credit hours in each of the six ICC competency areas (written communication, science, speaking and listening, humanistic-artistic, social behavior, and quantitative reasoning) plus 12 additional credit hours from USI’s Core 39 for a minimum of 30 credit hours. The additional credit hours must be selected from courses satisfying BS Skills, BA Skills, or Ways of Knowing categories; the only Foundations course that may be used to satisfy the additional credit hours is ENG 201. A minimum GPA of 2.0 in the ICC is required.
By completing a minimum of three credit hours from each of the six ICC competency areas, USI students will have minimally met all of the required state learning outcomes; the additional 12 credit hours selected from eligible Core 39 courses will serve to strengthen and broaden a student’s foundational knowledge of the learning outcomes while permitting students the flexibility to select courses related to their educational interests.
