The application deadline for the 2014/15 ASAP program at Ivy Tech Community College Richmond has been extended to June 1. The Program starts June 9 on the Richmond campus.
The Associate Accelerated Program (ASAP) provides Ivy Tech Community College Richmond students with the opportunity to earn a degree in one year instead of the traditional two-year track.
With the ASAP degree, students can begin a career immediately after graduation or transfer credits to a four-year college.
Students who are graduating this spring with a 2.5 or better, have a strong attendance record and have a counselor/teacher recommendation may qualify for the program.
Students who have obtained Dual Credits and/or taken an Ivy Tech Richmond “Take a Course On Us” class may be able to transfer those credits into the ASAP program.
ASAP students are encouraged to think of college as a job. In addition to obtaining knowledge and hands-on experience in an academic program, they will be educated in areas that are critically important to employers, like time management and teamwork.
Students will stay in the same group throughout the program, which will allow students to share successes and overcome challenges together—just as they would in the workplace.
In addition to helping program students get a head start on their future, ASAP can also help students save money— thousands of dollars, in fact.
One year in ASAP equals a two-year associate degree without the costs of a two year program- about a third less than at the average Indiana college. And that’s before factoring in room and board—expenses not incurred as an ASAP student. Students may qualify for a fellowship.
A new partnership between Ivy Tech Community College and Indiana University East enables students to earn a bachelor’s degree in a variety of business fields in just three years, saving time and money.
