Edison to host enrollment event

PIQUA — Edison State Community College will host a special enrollment event for new and returning students on Saturday, April 9. The event will be held between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Piqua and Darke County campuses and is designed to expedite the application and enrollment processes for summer classes that begin May 22, and fall classes that begin Aug. 29.

The portion of the enrollment event designated for new students will include a one-stop registration opportunity and breakfast. Those new to Edison State are asked to arrive at 9 a.m. or 10:30 a.m.

“This event is great because it gives 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 an Edison State 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 summer or fall 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 may arrive any time during the event and will be able to register for upcoming summer and fall semester classes, design a personalized education plan, meet with advisors to discuss career and academic goals, and enjoy breakfast.

“We’ll also have a great giveaway,” added Raterman. “All the folks who register to attend the event will be entered into a drawing for three-credit hour tuition waiver which is worth $450.”
