2+2 programs

​Marian University has partnered with Ivy Tech Community College  to provide a seamless, cost-effective bachelor's degree pathway for Ivy Tech students who graduate with (1) an Associate of Science in Business Administration or (2) an Associate of Science in Psychology degree.

This degree pathway is called a "2+2" program because you take Ivy Tech classes as a full-time student for two years and then you'll transfer and take Marian classes as a full-time student for two years.

  • During your two years of courses at Ivy Tech, you will complete your associate degree.
  • Upon admission to Marian, you transfer into one of our bachelor's degree programs with junior class status.
  • You'll complete two years of courses at Marian, completing your bachelor's degree upon finishing your senior year.

This is an attractive option for full-time Ivy Tech students who want to keep their educational expenses and student loans as low as possible by taking less expensive community college courses for two years. It's also attractive for students who want to earn a two-year associate degree before finishing a bachelor's degree. ​

Students with the Associate of Science in Business Administration from Ivy Tech can earn these degrees at Marian:

  1. Bachelor of Science in Business Analytics
  2. Bachelor of Science in Finance
  3. Bachelor of Science in Management
  4. Bachelor of Science in Marketing

Students with the Associate of Science in Psychology from Ivy Tech can earn this degree at Marian:

  1. Bachelor of Science in Psychology

It is possible that additional 2+2 options may be available in the future.
