A credit hour is an hour spent by students attending in-person instruction and two hours spent on assigned work per week. Many Indiana Tech courses are worth three credits each semester. Students enrolled in a three-credit course will spend three hours attending in-person instruction and six hours spent on assigned work for that same course per week.
A course meant to be taken prior to another course. The prerequisite course often contains material that will be beneficial to understand before engaging in material from a higher-level course.
A course that can be taken at the same time as another course. The corequisite course often contains material that will be beneficial to understand while engaging in material from a another course.
A course that is not required as part of a student’s academic degree plan, but that will count toward the required number of credits needed to graduate.

First-year students are encouraged to meet with their Student Success Advisor at least three times a semester for course advising based upon the student’s declared major. Student Success Advisors will educate students on course requirements and course sequencing within an academic degree program of interest.

Student Success Advisors work specifically with first-year students when it comes to scheduling classes for the first three semesters and work with all students in discussing and developing strategies and habits that lead to academic and personal success.
Academic Advisors are faculty members who will meet with students beginning fall of the second year on campus and advise students on courses to take through graduation. Student Success Advisors will provide all students with contact information for their academic advisor at the end of the student’s first academic year.
A Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science are not the same degrees. The main differences between a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science are that a Bachelor of Arts degree often includes additional courses in the humanities (writing, art, history, philosophy, or religion) while a Bachelor of Science degree often includes more science and mathematics courses.
Students can access their course schedule through their my.Indianatech.edu portal under the “Academics” tab.
