Academic Information

Title IX Information

Educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance are required to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964. These federal laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, including sexual harassment and sexual violence; sexual orientation; genetic information; race; color; religion; national origin; age; veteran status; and disability in the education programs and activities that they operate. International Business College is subject to these laws and complies fully with them in the enrollment of students, the hiring of faculty and staff, and in all other activities of the college. The Director/Chief Academic Officer, who is identified in the Administration, Faculty, and Staff section of this catalog and who may be reached by phone at 317-813-2300, by email at, or by mail or in person at 7205 Shadeland Station, Indianapolis, IN 46256, is the Title IX coordinator at International Business College. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the Title IX coordinator or to the U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights. Students, faculty, and administrative employees are encouraged to bring any complaints or reports of discrimination to the coordinator's attention. Such a report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by using the telephone number or electronic mail address or by mail to the office address listed for the Title IX Coordinator. The matter will be investigated promptly, and both parties will be notified in writing about the outcome of the complaint. Appropriate follow-up will be implemented to assure that no person associated with the college is subjected to unlawful discrimination. Individuals who report discrimination will not be subjected to any retaliation for doing so. 



Credit Transfer From Another School

Transcripts of work completed at other accredited colleges may be submitted to the Director/Chief Academic Officer for review. Transcripts should be submitted during the first term of a student's program. 

Other documentation may also be required. Credits considered for transfer are evaluated by the Director/Chief Academic Officer to determine if course work is similar in nature, content, and level to that required by International Business College. If the course work is comparable, transfer students may be given credit for courses completed at other accredited colleges provided the grades received for the courses were a "C" or better.  Because programs at International Business College are tailored to career preparation, course credits from other postsecondary schools may not be transferable.  

Credit is not granted for advanced placement or experiential learning. One exception is credit for military training that has been evaluated and recommended for credit by the American Council on Education for evaluation. Credit will be treated as transfer credit and will count towards graduation.  



Credit Transfer To Another School

The acceptance of credit is always at the discretion of the institution to which a student is attempting to transfer credits. 

There may be articulation agreements in place at the time the student enters that may not be in place when the student graduates or desires to attend a particular school. Because programs at International Business College are designed specifically for career preparation, students must assume that credits for courses taken at International Business College are not transferable to other institutions. Neither International Business College nor any of its employees can represent that another institution will accept any courses for credit. 

A student who is interested in attempting to transfer credits to another institution should contact the Director/Chief Academic Officer. 

International Business College will supply the necessary documentation that may aid the student in receiving credits for the completed course work provided the student does not owe the school money, is not delinquent or in default on a student loan, or does not owe a refund on any federal or state student financial aid program.
