Edison to host summer and fall registration event

Edison Community College will host a special registration event for new and returning students on Saturday, April 11. The event will be held between the hours of 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Piqua campus and is designed to expedite the application and enrollment processes for summer classes that begin May 18 and fall classes that begin August 24.

The portion of the registration event designated for new students will include a one-stop registration opportunity and lunch. For this special occasion, $45 will be waived for the application and payment plan fees for those registering the day of the event. Those new to Edison are asked to arrive at 9:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m.

“These events are great because they give 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. “You start out with an application and leave as an Edison 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 and 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 but stopped attending before completing their degree are also invited to attend. Returning students 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 lunch on Edison. Returning students may arrive at any time during the event.

“The event is being held on a Saturday in hopes of making it easier for folks to attend,” added Raterman. “We understand people are busy and we want to help make things simple!”
