"As more students look to continue their education after completing associate degrees at Ivy Tech, we want them to know that we're there to help ensure a smooth transition to a baccalaureate program," said Melissa Hughes, director of outreach and co-director of Transfer Central in ISU's Division of Enrollment Management.
Linda Clark-Laffoon is serving as ISU's on-campus transfer coordinator at Ivy Tech. She previously worked as assistant to the dean of the Indiana State's School of Graduate Studies for one and one-half years following a 10-year stint as associate director of distance education at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College.
"I look forward to having more direct contact with students," Clark-Laffoon said of her new position. "Having a presence at Ivy Tech provides transfer students with the opportunity to make a face-to-face connection with someone from Indiana State. Making sure they feel comfortable on campus and are taking the right courses is vital to their continued success."
Indiana State has a revitalized dual admissions agreement enabling students to be enrolled at Ivy Tech and ISU at the same time, Clark-Laffoon noted. The university also has new scholarships available for transfer students, she said.

Indiana State University also has on-campus transfer coordinators on Ivy Tech campuses in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne and Columbus and at Vincennes University.
