Passport is a coordinated program between Ivy Tech Community College-Central Indiana and Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). Passport strives to increase course and degree articulations between institutions, maintains advising offices at both campuses, offers cooperative student services, facilitates shared access to student records, offers IUPUI Passport scholarships and promotes student life programs. The goal of the Passport office is to make the transfer of credit and/or degrees between the two institutions as seamless as possible.
Check the Passport website for course and degree articulations. Visit the Passport Advising Office at Ivy Tech located in the Student Services area and speak with an advisor or call 921-4623 and make an appointment. IUPUI students should check with their departmental advisor.
