Edinboro University weeklong ‘Admit on the Spot’ program to speed admission08/20/2013
Future Edinboro University students can get on the fast track to academic success during a weeklong “Admit on the Spot” event, which began Monday, Aug. 19, and continues through Friday, Aug. 23. Instead of waiting to begin their Edinboro education, participants in the program can wrap up the application process in time for the start of the fall semester.
The “Admit on the Spot” program will be held between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the Admissions Office in Academy Hall, 200 E. Normal St., Edinboro. The office will remain open until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 20, to accommodate prospective students.
Students with applications on file can bring their missing credentials to the Admissions Office and receive an admission decision before they leave campus. Those who have not yet applied can complete an application on the spot. If they bring copies of their transcripts and SAT/ACT test scores, they too can receive an “Admit on the Spot” decision in time to begin classes on Monday, Aug. 26.
Financial aid representatives will be on hand to assist students who will be applying for aid, and staff will be available to register students for classes once they have been admitted.
Director of Admissions Craig Grooms said the “Admit on the Spot” program was created in response to the needs of students, who are often pressed for time in the lead-up to the academic year.
“The Admit on the Spot program is offered to students who have a desire to begin classes this fall, but do not have the luxury of time. We accelerate the application decision process to allow students to immediately proceed to the next step for fall enrollment,” Grooms said. “The ‘Admit on the Spot’ initiative gives Edinboro University the ability to be responsive to the needs of our students and community.”
