Ivy Tech to host May 10 application workshop for new ASAP program

Sunday, May 8, 2016

Ivy Tech Community College is hosting a student workshop May 10 for final applications to the first cohort of the Associate Accelerated Program (ASAP) at the Greencastle campus.

Students may pursue an Associate of Arts degree in liberal arts or an Associate of Science degree in business administration.

The session will be 6-8 p.m. Tuesday at the Greencastle campus, located at 915 Zinc Mill Rd. At the event, ASAP Coordinator Amanda Ostoich will answer any questions applicants may have about ASAP and allow students to complete parts of the application onsite.

ASAP classes will start at the Greencastle campus June 6.

The innovative program allows high school graduates to earn an associate degree in just 11 months. ASAP provides wraparound support from mentors and peers, giving students the support they need to complete a degree in an accelerated timeframe. ASAP students can also take advantage of Ivy Tech's tuition costs, the lowest in the state. After completion of the program, students can transfer their credits to a four-year school, where they can finish a bachelor's degree in just two more years.

ASAP has gained national attention for its success rates. Sixty-nine percent of ASAP students earn a degree in just one year and after one year 98 percent of students persist to earn their bachelor's degree or a second associate degree. Learn more about the program at www.ivytech.edu/asap.
