ISU is offering a new Applied Science degree.

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education approved yesterday Indiana State’s request to offer a brand new Bachelor of Applied Science degree. Indiana State created the program because typically, associate in Applied Science degrees from community colleges do not transfer to four-year universities.

The ISU degree will be available in two tracks, technology and health sciences.

Indiana State will offer the degree online and students will need to complete only 60 credit hours through Indiana State to graduate.

Indiana State’s provost and vice president for academic affairs Richard “Biff” Williams said in a statement:

“This new bachelor’s degree completion program can go a long way toward helping the state achieve its goal of increasing the number of Hoosiers with four-year degrees,” he said. “This program gives the students the unique opportunity to apply their technical Associate in Applied Science credits to a bachelor’s degree. The Bachelor of Applied Science degree can make Indiana State a leader in Indiana and the nation.”
