What Makes Us Different?

At IU, our busy adult students are always in mind when developing new programs and services. You may often study independently at IU, but you are never alone.

Degrees Designed for Employment

Our flexible, fully online degree programs are strictly career-focused. We’ve eliminated elective courses that you don’t need or want, so you can graduate and get started in your new career as fast as possible. In addition, our courses are designed using input and advice from our nationwide network of business partners to help ensure the knowledge and skills you learn match what today’s employers are looking for.

Exceptional Student Services

At IU, you may be studying online, but you’re never left on your own to figure things out. We combine the freedom and flexibility of online learning with the ultra-personal student services and support you’d expect from a face-to-face learning environment. Our dedicated team of admissions consultants, academic advisers, instructors, tutors, and success coaches stand ready to help you every step of the way, from enrollment to graduation, and beyond!

A Nationwide Professional Network

We’ve partnered with over 430 businesses and healthcare organizations across the nation to make sure our students gain the knowledge, skills, and experience they need to propel their careers forward after graduation. Our clinical partners help provide externships for students enrolled in one of our School of Healthcare programs, and companies of all shapes and sizes lend their expertise in the design of our other Schools’ courses.

Employment Assistance for Grads

Graduation is only the beginning. A better life is the destination. We’re not satisfied until you’ve launched a better career using your degree. Our Career Services office can help you polish your résumé, sharpen your job interviewing skills, and grow your professional network for career success. Plus, we’ll provide refresher courses to help you update your skills after graduation at no additional cost!
