    REACH is an academic assistance program designed to support and prepare students for college-level study. IVY Tech State College and Indiana University Northwest have developed a partnership to expand the academic opportunities in our community.
    The REACH program helps prepare students for the expectations of university course work. It creates an opportunity for students who are not immediately admitted to Indiana University Northwest to brush up on their study skills and earn transferable credits. Upon completion of the REACH requirements with a C or better, a REACH student will be guaranteed admission to IU Northwest.
