Ivy Bridge College is the online component of Tiffin University, a private coeducational university founded in 1888 with campus located in Tiffin, Ohio. Tiffin University offers degree programs not just in its main campus but also online, at the University of Bucharest in Romania, and in various areas of Ohio like Archbold, Columbus, Cleveland, Shelby, Toledo, Fremont, and Cincinnati. The school is recognized in the U.S. for both its on-campus as well as its online courses.
Through Ivy Bridge College, Tiffin University is able to grant 100% online Associate degrees. The relationship between the two learning institutions is such that a diploma earned from Ivy Bridge is a diploma from Tiffin University. Ivy Bridge College was granted authority by the Ohio Board of Regents and accreditated by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools Commission (NCA) to offer complete online Associate degrees including Associate of Arts in General Studies; Associate of Business Administration in Accounting; Associate of Business Administration in Business; Associate of Business Administration in Computer & Information Technology; Associate of Business Administration in Healthcare Administration; and Associate of Criminal Justice in Law Enforcement.
One feature that differentiates Ivy Bridge College’s online degree programs from others is that every student who enrolls in an online course at Ivy Bridge is immediately assigned a success coach whose role is to assist the student in developing his study skills, in managing his study time, and in fulfilling his academic and personal goals. The success coach thus insures that the student remains on track in the pursuit of his degree.
Tuition cost is US$4,500 per semester for fulltime students and US$300 per credit for part-time. Financial aid is available via loans, grants and scholarships for qualified students.
