About the IU South Bend Elkhart Center

The IU South Bend Elkhart Center was built with private donations and serves students who primarily live in or near Elkhart County. The Center contains 13 classrooms including a science laboratory, student technology center, video-conferencing classroom, and student lounge/computer mini-laboratory.

Between thirty and forty classes are taught at the Elkhart Center during fall and spring semesters with additional courses offered during summer sessions. Students can take all their classes in Elkhart or a combination of classes offered either in Elkhart, South Bend, or online. The Center specializes in offering the first two years of General Education courses. A plan is in place to make the Center a home for health science education within the next few years.

Specific information about classes offered at the Elkhart Center can be found online at and on the registrar’s page.

SmartStart Program

By taking 24 or more credit hours at the Elkhart Center, students are considered a SmartStart student. The personal attention and instruction received from faculty and staff as a full-time Elkhart Center student will provide students with a solid foundation upon which to build their IU degree. Students should work with their academic advisor to plan their course schedule. Students who successfully complete the SmartStart Program are encouraged to apply for the Verizon Scholarship, which provides tuition assistance for future course work at IU South Bend.


Several scholarship opportunities are available exclusively for students attending IU classes in Elkhart or for IU South Bend students who live in Elkhart County. For scholarship information, email
