Fall Semester classes begin Monday, August 24 at Ivy Tech Community College, and Express Enrollment Days will begin Monday, August 10 through Thursday, August 13 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday, August 14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  During Express Enrollment, students can complete the steps to begin classes for Fall Semester, including assessment, advising, help with financial aid, and course registration.

Ivy Tech’s Bloomington campus is also extending hours on Monday, August 17 through Thursday, August 20 from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and will be open Saturday, August 15 and Saturday, August 22 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The testing center, business office, bookstore, and financial aid offices will be open.

New technical certificates will be offered this fall, including Certified Personal Trainer, Pharmacy Technician, and Qualified Medication Aide.

“The new certificates can lead directly to jobs in those respective areas,” said Larry Swafford, Ph.D., dean of the School of Health Sciences. “The certificates are also part of associate degree tracks, so after students earn their certificates, they can choose to continue on to earn Kinesiology or Healthcare Specialist degrees.”

Ivy Tech Bloomington’s School of Health Sciences offers associate degree programs in Healthcare Specialist, Kinesiology, Paramedic Science, Radiation Therapy, Respiratory Care, and Nursing. Certificates offered include Practical Nursing, Certified Nursing Assistant, Certified Personal Trainer, Pharmacy Technician, Qualified Medication Aide, and Emergency Medical Technician.
