Manchester University becomes one of just five private colleges and universities in Indiana to accept the Indiana College Core, further strengthening the institution’s commitment to acknowledging the prior college-level work students bring to Manchester and helping them graduate on time and with less debt. 

The Indiana College Core is a set of statewide competencies defined by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education that allow high school students to earn college credit before graduating, while also easing the process of transferring from one higher education institution to another. 232 Indiana high schools currently offer it. 

Previously only accepted by public Indiana colleges and universities, it will now transfer as a block of 30 credit hours applied toward Manchester’s general education curriculum.

“Accepting the Indiana College Core, as well as associate degrees as a block transfer of credits, will streamline the transfer process for many students,” said Ryon Kaopuiki, Manchester University’s vice president for enrollment and marketing. “The college credit earned prior to Manchester, but applied in meaningful ways toward a Manchester degree, will help more students graduate sooner and likely with less debt.” 

Some students may require additional courses to meet the general education requirements at Manchester University.
