KOKOMO, Ind. – Ivy Tech Community College is kicking off its fall semester today with the beginning of the first eight-week term.
At Ivy Tech’s Kokomo Service Area, where enrollment is up about 5 percent over last year, Interim Chancellor Ethan Heicher said, “It’s wonderful to see our classrooms and hallways full of students from all backgrounds and all walks of life.” Heicher added that many of the fastest growing majors in the Kokomo area are in manufacturing, nursing, cyber security, psychology, education and agriculture – programs that connect to the area’s greatest workforce need.
Heicher noted that Ivy Tech offers five start dates throughout the year. “Even though this is the first day of the fall semester, it’s not too late to get started,” he said. “I would encourage anyone who has ever considered college as a path to a better life and career to come out and visit our new campus at 1815 E. Morgan St. Our team is ready to show you all the opportunities we offer to open doors to that better future.”
The next eight-week term begins October 24 and students are encouraged to enroll now. The College is offering free textbooks for this academic year and offers more than 70 programs in-person and online.
The State of Indiana provides free tuition at Ivy Tech for a number of programs through the Next Level Jobs program. Through this program, students can enroll in high-demand fields including IT, healthcare, building and construction, advanced manufacturing, business, and transportation and logistics.
