Edison to host registration event

PIQUA — Edison State Community College will host a special registration event for new and returning students on Saturday, Nov. 14. The event will be held between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Piqua campus and is designed to expedite the application and enrollment processes in time for classes that begin Jan. 19.

The portion of the registration event designated for new students will include a one-stop registration opportunity and breakfast. For this special occasion, the $25 payment plan will be waived. Those new to Edison are asked to arrive at 9 a.m. or 10:30 a.m.

“These events are great because they give people the opportunity to complete multiple enrollment steps in just a few hours — they apply, meet with an advisor, and get registered for classes,” said Christina Raterman, enrollment manager for Edison State. “You start out with an application and leave as a student with a picture ID and a class schedule in hand.”

Prospective students will meet with an advisor, design a personalized education plan, and register for spring semester classes. In addition, they will receive information about setting career and academic goals, learn about the financial aid process, complete new student orientation, and take a tour of campus.

New students will also be able to complete the COMPASS assessment in reading, writing and math. Students who have previously completed college math and English, or who have qualifying ACT or SAT scores, may not need to take the COMPASS.

Students who started pursuing education from Edison State but stopped attending before completing their degree are also invited to attend. Returning students will be able to register for upcoming spring semester classes, design a personalized education plan, meet with advisors to discuss career and academic goals, and enjoy lunch on Edison. Returning students may arrive at any time during the event.

“The event is being held on a Saturday in hopes of making it easier for folks to attend,” added Raterman. “We understand people are busy and we want to help make things simple!”

In addition to saving money, the first fifty people who register to attend the enrollment event in advance will be entered to win a three-credit hour tuition waiver. For more information or to register to attend, go online to www.edisonohio.edu/admissions.
