Indiana Tech is expanding its presence in Kentucky by opening a campus in Bowling Green.
The school has a traditional campus in Fort Wayne, along with 18 other locations that primarily serve working adults.
“The difference between us and other schools, is that even if they’re online students, we like to have people face to face to offer various types of support from admissions to tutoring to helping them with registration," said VP for Enrollment Management Steve Herendeen.
Despite being home to Western Kentucky University, Herendeen says Bowling Green is a good market because there have been several closures of for-profit colleges in the area that traditionally cater to non-traditional students.
Indiana Tech hopes to be open in Bowling Green by November 1 with classes starting in January. The school will operate out of a 4,000 square foot space at Stadium Park Plaza downtown.
The school offers associate to graduate level degrees both online and in the classroom. In-person classes will be taught in the evenings to accommodate working adults.
Indiana Tech also has locations in Louisville and Evansville.
