Ivy Tech Community College Evansville Campus will have an informational event on Feb. 20 for parents and students interested in learning more about completing an associate degree in less than one year at Ivy Tech Community College. The Associate Accelerated Program (ASAP) was recently announced as a recipient of the 2018 Stan Jones Student Success Award by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.

ASAP helps high school graduates earn an associate degree in just 11 months and prepares them to transfer to a four-year college to earn their bachelor’s degree. Students work with a dedicated ASAP coordinator to help identify academic goals, mapping out a clear path to success. Classes are offered for students as a group with other students in the program for the entire 11 months. In addition, faculty teams offer individual attention during five, eight-week terms. Graduates leave the program with the skills they need to succeed in further education and the workforce.

To learn more about the ASAP program, attend the information session on the Evansville campus, at 3501 N. First Avenue, on February 20, at 6 p.m. or visit https://www.ivytech.edu/asap/.

The award from the CHE was announced at a ceremony during the Commission’s fourth annual Student Success Conference in Indianapolis. The award was named in honor of the late Stan Jones, President of Complete College America and former Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education.

In addition to being honored at the ceremony, Ivy Tech’s ASAP program received a $5,000 award to help further its work increasing student success and closing completion gaps.
