Edison sets enrollment events

Staff report

PIQUA — Edison State Community College will host Fast Track Friday enrollment events beginning July 8 and running every Friday through Aug. 5 for new and returning students.

The events are designed to expedite the application and enrollment processes for fall classes that begin Aug. 29.

“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 adviser and get registered for classes,” said Christina Raterman, enrollment manager. “You start out with an application and leave as an Edison State student with a picture ID and a class schedule in hand.”

In addition, those in attendance 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.

Returning students who started pursuing education from Edison State but stopped attending before completing a degree are also invited to attend. Returning students will be able to register for classes, design personalized education plans, meet with advisers to discuss career and academic goals and enjoy breakfast.

New and returning students are asked to arrive by 9 a.m. Register to attend by visiting www.edisonohio.edu/enroll. For information, call 937-778-8600.
