Northern Indiana Consortium for Education

IU South Bend is one of six institutions of postsecondary education in St. Joseph and Elkhart counties that are members of the Northern Indiana Consortium for Education (NICE). The purpose of the consortium is to share the library resources, faculty expertise, and academic strengths of the six institutions so that course opportunities available to students at member schools may be broadened. In addition to IU South Bend, the consortium includes Bethel, Goshen, Holy Cross, Ivy Tech Community (North Central), and Saint Mary’s colleges.

A student exchange program operates under the auspices of NICE and is open to formally admitted full-time undergraduate students (those enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours of coursework). Students cannot request a NICE course if the course is offered at the student’s home institution during the requested semester. Permission to take the guest institution’s course is granted on a seat-available basis.

IU South Bend students interested in taking courses at another NICE institution must obtain the approval of their academic advisor and complete the registration requirements established by the IU South Bend Office of the Registrar. IU South Bend fees are assessed for classes taken at other institutions. Laboratory fees are paid to the host school. No more than 6 credit hours may be taken through the consortium in a semester. No consortium classes may be taken in summer sessions.

Under a library resources agreement established by the six schools, students and faculty members at IU South Bend have access to the holdings of other libraries in the consortium without cost to the borrower.

About Distance Education at IU South Bend

IU South Bend offers several online educationcourses; including fully online and hybrid/blended courses for undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs. Admission to the university is required and tuition is the same for classes held on campus. Throughout the year, new courses are developed with several offered every semester.

Students already admitted to the university may go to One.IU to find distance education course listings. Course descriptions and requirements are posted by the instructor. On-campus attendance for hybrid/blended courses is usually included in the course description.

While there are clear deadlines to meet for each DE course (submitting assignments, taking exams, etc.), students have found it convenient to complete the assignments and course work in their free time.

Before registering for a DE course, students are encouraged to take the Student Readiness Survey found at The self-assessment is meant to help students understand what is required/expected of them as well as what they can expect from a DE course.
