Ivy Tech sets Express Enrollment Week at Kokomo, Logansport campuses

Extended hours offer chance to complete enrollment for spring semester

KOKOMO – If your New Year’s resolutions include improving your mind, your skills, and your future earning opportunities, consider starting at Ivy Tech Community College when spring semester classes begin Jan. 16. To get you on your way, Ivy Tech Community College campuses in Kokomo and Logansport are offering Express Enrollment Days today through Saturday.

Express Enrollment Days provide an opportunity for students from across Indiana to visit one of the participating locations and complete the enrollment steps to become a student at Ivy Tech for spring semester. The Kokomo and Logansport sites will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today through Friday, Jan. 2 through Jan. 5, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 6. No appointments are necessary.

“With these extended hours, you have an opportunity to walk in and get all the steps completed so you’re ready for spring semester,” said Marcia Worland, vice chancellor for Enrollment Services for Ivy Tech Kokomo. “We will have additional staff available at both locations to help prospective students wherever they are in the enrollment process,” she added, “from applying for admission to actually registering for classes.”

Joshua Morrison, director of academic advising, noted that academic advisors will be available to help students understand how their prior college courses could apply to a degree or certificate program. “This can potentially save them time and tuition dollars,” Morrison said. “Our staff members are always happy to review official or unofficial transcripts for prior college credit, whether they are from Ivy Tech or another institution, and many students are surprised at how close they are to completing their academic program with us.”

At Statewide Express Enrollment Days, students can apply for admission, get financial aid questions answered so they can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), learn about assessment to determine appropriate classes, meet with an advisor, and register for the upcoming semester. Ivy Tech recommends that students come with a government-issued photo identification, 2016 tax information, and SAT/ACT/PSAT scores and high school or college transcripts

Members of the admissions team are available to ask questions in advance. Contact Tammy Herschberger at therschberger@ivytech.edu or 765-252-5487 for the Kokomo Campus event at 1815 E. Morgan St., Kokomo, or Jovita Flores at jflores26@ivytech.edu or 574-398-6097 for the Logansport Campus event at 1 Ivy Tech Way, Logansport.
