FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Jan. 30, 2012) –Indiana Tech has become a partner with Norton Healthcare through the organization’s College at Work Program. The program encourages Norton employees to pursue higher education degrees.
Indiana Tech is a small private university with a main campus in Fort Wayne, Ind., and 12 satellite locations including one in Louisville.
Norton’s College at Work Program helps to eliminate some of the barriers that working adults face, such as finding time to go to campus and meet with an admissions representative. As a partner in the program, Indiana Tech will offer onsite meetings and registration events for Norton employees who are interested in pursuing a degree through the university’s College of Professional Studies.
The College of Professional Studies offers undergraduate and graduate programs in high-demand fields such as accounting, business, criminal justice and leadership in an accelerated format. The program is designed to accommodate nontraditional students who also balance work, family, and community responsibilities. Classes meet one evening per week for five weeks at the undergraduate level and six weeks at the graduate level. Textbooks, which are included in the cost of tuition, are shipped to students prior to the first night of class. The accelerated degree program also is available online, and students can take advantage of mixing in-person and online courses to meet their needs.
Indiana Tech is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
