Indiana College Core

What is the Indiana College Core?

The Indiana College Core (ICC) is a block of 30 credit hours of college-level coursework that includes specific competencies and learning outcomes commonly found in general education programs.  The ICC transfers between Indiana public colleges and universities.

Learn more about ICC from the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.

Benefits of ICC

For Students

  • The ICC provides ease of transferability in core credits between institutions.
  • Earn college credit while still in high school, kickstarting your college career.
  • Receive a post-secondary credential upon completion of the ICC.

For Partner Schools

  • Offering ICC can positively affect state standing.
  • ICC is required for Early College models in Indiana.
  • ICC provides students and your school community with greater pathways toward higher education.

How can your school offer an ICC from Indiana University?

Your school can become a delivery site for an ICC from Indiana University once a pathway to the following is open to your students:

  • At least 30 college-level credits in courses that provide the required ICC competencies and learning outcomes
  • At least 15 of the 30 credits from IU courses offered through ACP or from an IU campus

Once the pathway is established, an MOU addendum will be signed by your school and IU officially recognizing the partnership.

ICC support from your IU campus

Since the curriculum map for students is determined by both the available college-level credits and which IU campus is associated with the school’s region, there are ICC program coordinators at each campus who will answer questions and assist the partner schools and students through the process.
