New process will streamline, simplify enrollment for new students and transfers
INDIANAPOLIS – Ivy Tech Community College has launched a newly enhanced online application for the college’s new students that will streamline the application process and provide information in a quicker timeframe.
New students who apply for admission to Ivy Tech will now have the ability to upload standardized test scores, high school transcripts or college transcripts at the time of application in order to expedite their enrollment to the college. Although Ivy Tech is an open-access college, these documents are required as part of the assessment process to ensure Ivy Tech places the student in the appropriate classes based on skill level. Students who do not have these documents are encouraged to take Ivy Tech’s ACCUPLACER assessment test on campus.
In addition to the enhancements to the online application, Ivy Tech has launched an Admissions Processing Center which ensures all applications and assessment documents are processed within 48 hours, allowing students to advance through the enrollment process at a quicker pace. Students are notified via email and text message once their application is completed and their assessment documents are reviewed.
“We are pleased to bring a more efficient and streamlined process to the more than 75,000 students that apply to the college each year,” said Jeff Fanter, Senior Vice President for Communications, Marketing and Student Experience at Ivy Tech. “By implementing the Admissions Processing Center, we will be able to better serve our students.”
Students can access the new application at ivytech.edu/applynow. Classes for the Spring semester begin January 11.
