Butler/IPS Partnerships

Butler Early College Program

An integral part of Butler University's partnership with IPS, the Early College Program (ECP) provides appropriately prepared juniors and seniors at Shortridge with access to college courses for credit at Butler while the students are completing their high school requirements. Another goal is to allow program students to spend time on the Butler campus, participating in additional educational and enrichment programs that help prepare them for higher education.

Earning Early College Credits

Qualified Shortridge juniors and seniors can earn college credits at Butler through the Early College Program (ECP) while completing their high school degrees. Participants learn side-by-side with Butler students and fulltime faculty, interacting in intimate classroom settings. 

All Butler colleges offer ECP courses covering many disciplines, including writing, advanced foreign languages, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. ECP participants also enjoy one-on-one academic advising, peer mentoring and instruction to enhance college-level study skills.
