A unique combination of two globally recognized Big Ten schools (Indiana University and Purdue University), the Columbus campus offers undergraduate and graduate programs. Online, hybrid, evening, and day classes are available, as are courses taught off-campus at learning centers in Seymour and Greensburg.
