Educational Options at Ivy Tech Community College - Bloomington

In 2004, Ivy Tech Community College - Bloomington established a two-year degree program in biotechnology through a grant from the Lilly Endowment. Since then, we have developed training and degree programs that meet the demand of the local biotechnology industry. We have received additional grants from the National Science Foundation, the State of Indiana Strategic Skills Initiative, and Lilly Endowment. Our local industry partners continually enable us to expand our training and obtain state-of-the-art equipment.

Ivy Tech - Bloomington offers certificate programs, two-year degree programs, and a two-year degree that transfers to four-year institutions, and counts toward a bachelor’s degree. The entire Ivy Tech AS degree in Biotechnology transfers seamlessly to IU-Bloomington. The tuition and fees for two years of biotechnology college education at Ivy Tech costs about one third of the average
cost of two years at public four-year universities in Indiana.
