2+2 Transfer Student Information
Western Kentucky University (WKU) has a unique partnership with a select group of community and technical colleges that allows graduates to apply their IT degrees towards the completion of the CIT major. Under this arrangement, WKU will accept your degree as a block transfer when you are admitted — and you start the CIT program as a Junior.
There are no complicated articulation agreements, no awkward lists of classes that transfer (and many that do not). Our consortium graduates know that their associates' degrees transfer into the CIT program directly. Check out the 'other' schools; there really isn't much to compare.
Students who take advantage of this option only take (4) 300-level CIT courses and (8) 400-level electives. Your block transfer covers the rest of the major requirements.
Students must complete the A.A.S. degree before starting in the CIT program to take advantage of this partnership. WKU will not consider individual courses for transfer. If you don't graduate...you can't take advantage of this 2+2 option.
Students who graduate in something other than Information Technology (or CIS at IvyTech) are not eligible for the 2+2 option. Lots of college majors use computers in their curriculum and some have the word "technology" in the title. Unless it's an IT program from a consortium partner we can't accept your transfer credit.
Students who transfer from a partner community/technical college will need to complete WKU's General Education requirements. These may be completed at WKU, or your local college. You will learn more about this in your CIT classes.
All CIT courses are available on-line and may be completed from anywhere in the world. The "on-demand" format of these classes is compatible with busy work and family schedules.
2+2 Partner Institutions Information
The Community and Technical Colleges listed below are members of the Educational Opportunity Consortium. Students who graduate with an associates degree in Information Technology from one of these schools are eligible for the 2+2 option in CIT.
|ITCC South Bend|
|ITCC Fort Wayne|
|(All ITCC Campuses)||
Big Sandy CTC
|ITCC Terre Haute|
Students who have completed a different major or have graduated from a school that is not part of the consortium are NOT eligible for the 2+2 program. Students who have attended, but not graduated from, a consortium partner cannot transfer individual courses. Only the completed associates degree is accepted. If you haven't graduated, please consult your advisor and finish that associates program!
If you are a faculty member at a school offering a technically-focused Information Technology curriculum and are interested in becoming part of the educational consortium, please contact us. Students, please ask your dean or division chair to get in touch. We are not able to follow up directly to student requests for inclusion.
Non 2+2 Students
Many CIT majors transfer to WKU after completing their associate's degree from a partner institution. Other majors are traditional on-campus students. Some are non-traditional, adult, or returning students.
If you are a 'non-2+2' student (you haven't completed an associate's degree in IT) you will start the major by completing a set of foundational courses. These required classes will introduce you to the key subject areas in the discipline and prepare you for more advanced study in your electives.
We strive to make the CIT program as flexible and accessible as possible.
Contact your assigned CIT advisor for more information.
