Piedmont Technical College will once again be offering Instant Admissions Days this summer to make enrolling in college easy. The first Instant Admissions Days is tomorrow, and is the only one that also allows sign-up for summer work. Admissions and financial aid counselors will be on hand to help students through the entire enrollment process in just one day. Dean of Enrollment Management Tanisha Latimer said “We wanted to provide students with a one-stop option to enroll in classes.”
During the Instant Admissions Day, students can apply, take the placement test, complete the FAFSA for financial aid and register for classes with a counselor.. The idea for a one-day event came from an admissions counselor who saw numerous students who had expressed an interest in classes at Piedmont Tech, but had not yet applied for admissions or registered for classes.
Tomorrow’s Instant Admissions Day will be from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. with the last placement testing beginning at 4:30 p.m. Students should bring their official high school transcript or GED Score report; official college transcripts if any; a photo ID and their 2012 tax return forms. The process will take two to four hours to complete, but will include everything the student will need to enroll in classes.
