University announced it plans to discontinue the Maumee-based Ivy Bridge
College as of October 20 due to policy changes. This will be the second local
college to close.
2007, Tiffin University (TU) and Altius Education created a joint venture to
provide support services to TU's online Associate's Degree programs at Ivy
Bridge College. The joint venture was structured to meet the requirements of TU's
accrediting agency, the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
the past couple of years, the HLC changed certain policies and procedures. Now
Ivy Bridge College does not meet those policies, so by October 20, the online
degree will be discontinued.
who are currently enrolled have three options: They can transfer to TU's online
or seated Bachelor's programs, they can transfer to another college or
university that offers the online Associate Degree, or go to any institution
that accepts them.
officials say they will continue to offer Associate Degrees on their campus,
and may consider offering them online at some point in the future.
