Parents

You remember your child’s first steps, his or her first day of kindergarten, and that fulfilling moment when she or he received a high school diploma. The transition to college might be a time of mixed emotions—for you and your child. Indiana Tech wants you to know that your child is not just a number at our university.

Our faculty and staff know our students by name and are committed to helping them fulfill their aspirations and overcome any personal or academic challenges. Indiana Tech offers a welcoming community that will inspire growth and endless opportunities.

We understand you might still have questions, so we’ve provided a list of resources we think you’ll find helpful below. Of course, you can always contact us at 800.937.2448, ext. 3103 if you still have questions or concerns.

Student housing

In the past five years, Indiana Tech has built four residence halls that have allowed us to keep up with the number of students who live on campus. The amenities in several of our residence halls are nicer than what some apartments in town offer their tenants. There are specific residence halls that are designated for freshmen and for upperclassmen, so make sure you learn more about our residence halls before having your son or daughter apply for housing.

Student Support Services

Our Student Support Services Office assists students who need academic help for any reason, no matter if it’s because of a learning disability or they just need some extra help with their studies.

Wellness Center

It is a known fact that the “Freshman 15″ is alive and well on college campuses. To combat this, Indiana Tech offers many ways for students to stay healthy – both physically and mentally – when they aren’t in class or studying. Visit our Wellness Center webpage for more information on how we keep our students healthy and happy.
