Top benefits to getting an associates degree

A look into the Saint Joe Indy associate degrees
At Saint Joe Indy, we’re committed to helping you succeed and achieve what you’ve always dreamed of. You’ll choose from our two programs, along with optional plug-ins, that will uncover your talents and connect you with your next step.

Our programs follow the cohort model. This means that in the first year of the program, you will have a pre-set schedule. In the following year, more flexibility exists in the order and choices of courses, when there are more electives. We also aim to keep our class sizes small, with an anticipated 15 students in each course, creating a supportive environment for personalized learning and detailed discussions. The class size also allows you to form close relationships with your classmates and professors.

Associate of Business Administration
With a business degree, you will receive a well-rounded education that spans topics and creates skills in accounting, finance, marketing, management, and operations, allowing you to work in almost any industry in various positions. Within this track, you will take a set group of core courses but the degree allows for three elective courses for you to choose based on your career interests.

Associates of Arts in Liberal Arts
The liberal arts program enhances your critical thinking skills and verbal and written communication, providing credits that can easily transfer to a four-year institution. Besides the requirement of two social science courses and two arts courses, the highly flexible track allows you to choose to concentrate the remainder of your credits in either field.

Information Technology Plug-In
Add an information technology plug-in to your degree to broaden your skill set and increase your marketability. This plug-in allows you to take elective courses in computer science, work hands-on with a coding academy, or gain credit for other tech-associated experiences, gaining increasingly in-demand skills.

Shape the path that works for you
Each degree requires 64 credits, which is half the 128 credits needed for a Marian University bachelor’s degree. The program takes 24 months to complete, with breaks between the summer, fall, and spring semesters.

Once you earn your Saint Joe Indy degree, you’ll receive direct admittance to Marian University if your future career requires a bachelor’s degree. Your Saint Joe Indy credits can also transfer to another four-year institution. You may choose to go directly into your career following graduation. No matter what you decide, together, we’ll help you meet your goals.

Affordable and achievable
We encourage you to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible to receive maximum consideration for financial aid. Once complete, you’re automatically considered for all university scholarships and grants when you apply for admission—no additional applications necessary.

You may be eligible for the majority of your annual tuition to be covered through federal and state grants and 21st Century Scholarships. Other scholarships and our Earn and Learn internship program can typically cover any remaining portion.
