INDIANAPOLIS – College encourages students to register before the holidays due to capacity constraints. Ivy Tech Community College President Thomas J. Snyder informed both current Fall term students and recent applicants to the school about the urgent need to enroll in Spring classes as soon as possible due to capacity issues and the possibility that some courses may not be available in the near future.
The college has currently enrolled more than 86,000 students for the upcoming Spring term; however, over 40,000 students currently enrolled in this Fall term are not yet registered for next semester. In addition, another 15,000 new applicants have not yet registered for the upcoming semester, which begins on January 9.
The college is experiencing some capacity constraints in certain classes in Nursing, Healthcare Support and Technology and is encouraging students to register before the holidays in order to secure a seat in courses while they are still open and available. The college has advised students to enroll early through an aggressive promotional campaign that began in March 2011.
“Our mission is to serve as many Hoosiers as possible and to do this effectively we want to encourage our students and future students to register for classes prior to the holidays as we are seeing course constraints at some of our campuses,” said Ivy Tech President Thomas J. Snyder. “The past few years have been record enrollment years for Ivy Tech and we want to thank our students for their patience in what has been a tremendously busy enrollment cycle at Ivy Tech.”
Enrollment at Ivy Tech Community College has grown from 104,708 in 2005-2006 to 174,806 in 2010-2011.
