Butler will open two-year college in 2025 to give underserved students a path to college

Butler University plans to open a two-year college in the fall of 2025 to attract undocumented and historically underserved populations to pursue higher degrees.

The new college, which will only accept commuter students, aims to offer Indianapolis high school students who cannot afford Butler’s typical four-year undergraduate degree an opportunity to obtain an associate’s degree or other professional credentials.

The exact tuition amount has not been set yet but Butler University President James Danko said the goal is to make college as low-cost as possible. Students will either have to qualify for a federal Pell Grant or be undocumented to be admitted to the program.
