Students of Ivy Tech Community College will be heading back to the classroom for the Fall 2021 Semester.

A statement issued by Ivy Tech on Tuesday night explained that the College would offer its fall semester courses in-person starting in August.

Officials say the decision to return to in-person classes was made based on the current downward COVID-19 trends throughout Indiana.

While Ivy Tech will allow those who wish to return to full in-person learning to do so, students who would rather learn online will have multiple course options available.

"By August, it is anticipated that all students who want to be on campus, will be able to," Ivy Tech's statement said.

According to Daniela Vidal, chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College’s Evansville campus, vaccinations are another driving force behind the College's switch to in-person instruction.

“We know that many of our students prefer to be learning in an in-person setting, and we are happy that with the vaccinations taking place, we are getting in a better and better position to offer more classes in that manner," Chancellor Vidal said.

Much like Ivy Tech, the University of Southern Indiana recently announced its switch to in-person learning for the fall semester.

The first fall session at Ivy Tech starts Wednesday, August 18.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
