Ivy Tech Kokomo Region sets special orientation for December high school grads

Students can move quickly through entrance process for spring semester

KOKOMO, Ind. — High school students who will graduate mid-year and are interested in beginning classes at Ivy Tech Community College in January are invited to a special orientation program that will help speed them through the enrollment process.

The session, set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, at Ivy Tech’s Kokomo Campus, will include completing the application process, going through new student orientation, and beginning the financial aid process (starting with the FAFSA) and the academic placement assessment process. Students are encouraged to invite their parents and to bring along friends who may be considering Ivy Tech as a next step in their plans.

“This is a great way to quickly complete most of the steps toward enrollment,” said Sarah King, an instructor in Academic Skills Advancement working this year in student recruitment. “We will have Ivy Tech staffers on hand to help answer questions about all the steps in the process to be ready to begin college study when spring semester begins Jan. 12, including the opportunity to meet the Dec. 1 priority date to assure financial aid can be in place on the first day of classes.”

Part of the Ivy Tech enrollment process involves academic placement assessment to evaluate applicants’ reading, writing and math skills so they can be placed in appropriate classes. Those attending the Nov. 7 event should bring their high school transcripts or their scores from the PSAT, SAT or ACT examinations. Students with scores above specified minimums will be directly admitted. Those students needing to take the Accuplacer placement tests will have the opportunity for test preparation at the event. More information on the assessment process can be found at www.ivytech.edu/assessment.
