Harrison College is a for-profit career college founded in 1902 with main headquarters based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Formerly known as Indiana Business College, the school officially changed its name to Harrison College in 2009 to reflect its rapidly evolving curriculum and its move to expand its operations to campuses outside of Indiana.
Now with a branch campus in Columbus, Ohio, Harrison College remains committed to its mission to “deliver student-centered education and prepare students for careers that positively impact society, both locally and globally.”
Through its various schools of study; namely, the School of Health Sciences; School of Veterinary Technology; School of Information Technology; School of Criminal Justice; School of Business, and its Chef Academy, Harrison College offers campus-based and online educational programs leading to an Associate or Bachelor’s degree or to a professional diploma or certificate.
To insure that all students wanting to pursue higher education are able to do so regardless of their busy schedule or remote location, the college offers 100% online degree and certificate programs in the areas of Health Sciences, Information Technology, Criminal Justice, and Business. For as long as these working students have access to the Internet, Harrison’s online programs allow them to pursue their college degrees wherever they are.
Cost of tuition for both online and on-campus courses varies according to the program chosen. However, students who have remained enrolled in Harrison College since September 24, 2007 enjoy the benefits of a tuition freeze program which the school adopted to help ease the burden of cost of tuition for its students. In addition, financial aid is also extended in the form of scholarships for qualified students.
Harrison College is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools.
