A.S. in Visual Communications at Ivy Tech to B.S. in Media Arts and Sciences at IUPUI

It's Not Too Late to Launch Your Future

Student applications for the 2020-21 school year will be accepted until August 14 via the ApplyIU platform only. Applicants who apply up through this date will have until August 18 to submit all needed transcripts and materials to be reviewed for the fall semester. We will also continue to award admission-based scholarships for those who meet the qualification criteria.

Students who graduate from Ivy Tech with the Associate of Science in Visual Communications must complete these remaining courses in order to earn the Bachelor of Science in Media Arts and Science from IUPUI. You may have to present a portfolio with previous work to move to higher level specialization courses within the degree.

If general education requirements have not been completed, including college-level Math, additional courses may be required to complete the degree. Students must earn a C or higher in all courses as well as a cumulative grade point average of a 2.0 or higher in order to graduate.
