Passport Program

Two institutions, one mission: Your success

Through a strong partnership between IUPUI and Ivy Tech Community College, we provide you with a smooth transition between the two institutions. Through the Passport Program, we facilitate convenient access to educational opportunities that fit your needs at both institutions.

To put it simply, we help you make the smoothest transition possible from Ivy Tech to IUPUI.

Our history: Thirty years of partnership

In February 1990, IUPUI and Ivy Tech Vocational College (now known as Ivy Tech Community College) executed our first Memorandum of Agreement to support student success. In 1998, we coined the term “Passport,” and the Passport Program launched as a jointly funded office between Ivy Tech Community College Indianapolis service area (ITISA) and IUPUI. ITISA includes the following Ivy Tech campuses:

  • Indianapolis
  • Lawrence
  • Avon/Plainfield
  • Boone County

As the name implies, Passport facilitates travel – for Ivy Tech students to IUPUI and much more.

10%of IUPUI undergraduates are Ivy Tech transfer students.

45%Of new first-time Ivy Tech transfer students are from underrepresented populations.
