BLOOMINGTON – Ivy Tech Community College’s Associate Accelerated Program (ASAP) is now accepting applications for the 2018-19 academic year and is hosting an open house on main campus on Tuesday, April 3 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The program allows high school graduates to earn an associate degree in as little as 11 months and prepares them to transfer to a four-year college to earn their bachelor’s degree.

During the event, current ASAP students will be available to answer questions and prospective students will have a chance to win a free class.

“ASAP is a rewarding program, but a rigorous one,” said Jennifer Rusk, ASAP program director. “The students who enroll in Ivy Tech’s ASAP program are those who excelled in high school who are driven, focused, and are eager to earn their associate degree quickly to transfer to a four-year college.”

“The program is very transferable to other colleges,” said Bastian Key, previous ASAP student. “We are in-demand students because we already have an associate degree and colleges love us, and they love the work ethic that we have.”

During the event, current ASAP students will be available to answer questions and prospective students will have a chance to win a free class.

Ivy Tech’s ASAP program offers associate degrees in Liberal Arts, Education, Business Administration, Informatics, Biotechnology and Pre-Social Work. To join ASAP students must have a minimum high school grade point average of 2.5, a good attendance record, be under 21 years of age, complete all ASAP admissions steps, and attend an interview. Classes in the program are broken down into five eight-week sessions; summer, fall 1, fall 2, spring 1 and spring 2.

ASAP open house will be held in classroom D220. Ivy Tech Bloomington is located on the west side at 200 Daniels Way.
