IUPUI collaborates with the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) to sponsor the SITE program. SITE is a transition program that serves an average of 10-16 students ages 18-21 each year from IPS. Students outside of IPS who apply and are accepted into SITE must enroll in IPS prior to beginning the SITE program. Students spend one to two years on campus taking classes, engaging in typical college classes and activities, interacting with college peers, and learning to access the campus and community.
