Upcoming Ivy Tech ‘boot camp’ in Logansport

LOGANSPORT, Ind.—Ivy Tech Community College Logansport will be offering another enrollment boot camp. The camp will be held on Monday, June 17 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The purpose of the boot camp is to help prospective students with busy schedules get through the enrollment process in one visit to campus.

Those who participate in Ivy Tech Enrollment Boot Camp can expect to get through (or finish if they’ve already started) the enrollment process and be ready to start fall classes on Aug. 19. College recruiters will help students complete the admission application if they haven’t already, complete new student orientation, complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) if they haven’t already, complete the placement assessment, and select the appropriate courses for the summer or fall semesters. Note: Students may waive the assessment by providing the admissions representative with a copy of their transcript showing previous college credit or SAT scores of 460+, ACT scores of 17+, or PSAT scores of 46+.

Currently, students may have to come to campus as many as four times before they are actually enrolled. This approach will eliminate those repeated trips.

Parents are encouraged to attend with their college-bound student. Participants who have not filed for financial aid should bring their 2012 tax returns. A financial aid associate will walk them through filing the FAFSA.

Students who plan to attend any Ivy Tech Kokomo Region campus in the fall should plan to come to boot camp if this approach works best for them. What is covered in Boot Camp is applicable to any Kokomo Region Ivy Tech student. Additional staff will be ‘deployed’ from the outlying Kokomo Region campuses to assist with the event so participants are assured excellent customer service and leave the event confident that they are prepared to begin their college experience. There is no cost to attend Boot Camp. For more information about Ivy Tech’s Enrollment Boot Camp, contact Suzanne Dillman at 574-753-5101, ext. 2179, or sdillman@ivytech.edu.
