Indian Hills has articulation agreements and transfer plans with many four-year colleges and universities. However, not all credits are guaranteed to transfer because of differences in programs and requirements among various institutions.

"I was able to complete one year of college at Indian Hills while still attending high school. After graduating, I only had to complete one additional year of credits at Indian Hills. Taking concurrent enrollment credit saved me so much money. Also, staying close to home and completing my degree provided me with the freedom of going to college, but also the structure I needed to learn how to transition to a larger institution.
