Bethel College and Ivy Tech partnering

A new partnership aims to make a private college education more affordable for students.  Bethel College is teaming up with Ivy Tech to allow students to live on Bethel's campus, while taking classes at Ivy Tech their first two years. They'd then take their last two years of classes at Bethel.

The College says the program will save students about $32,000.  "We saw pockets of students on campus every year who were interested in Bethel, but when push came to shove, they just couldn't afford a Bethel education," says Assistant VP of traditional enrollment at Bethel College, Andrea Helmuth. "They were going to a great institution like Ivy Tech already so we said, 'why not partner, why not find a way for them to have the best of both worlds?' and so this was the solution."

One student is enrolled in the program called "2CU" or Two campuses, one focus. You. Bethel is looking to enroll 25 students in the fall.  For information on how to apply, click here.
