St. Joseph's College

Charlotte Tuggle / WBAA

This week marks one year since St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer announced it would be suspending operations. School officials say the college – as it was – is dead. And it’s still uncertain if – or how – the college might reopen.

Just a year ago, students were shuffling to and from class under the towering chapel on the St. Joseph’s campus. It’s since fallen silent.

Ivy Tech students will soon be able to earn a bachelor’s degree in business or accounting on the Lafayette campus.

The community college has entered into a partnership with St. Joseph’s College in Rensselear to allow Ivy Tech grads to transfer to Saint Joseph’s and complete a bachelor’s degree on the Ivy Tech campus.

Students entering the program this August would be enrolled as St. Joseph’s students and take classes at Ivy Tech taught by St. Joseph’s faculty.

Courses will be offered evenings twice a week.
