Continued growth in degree programs and enrollment are on the horizon at Ivy Tech Community College in Columbus.

Enrollment for the spring semester is on track to increase 2 percent from a year earlier, said Steven Combs, chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College.

The campus has been enrolling new and current students and signing them up for classes during express enrollment this week, which continues today.

Degree programs such as nursing and advanced automation and robotics technology offered at the Columbus campus remain among the most popular, Combs said. The college is the only Ivy Tech location south of Indianapolis that offers a degree in agriculture, also making that program attractive, he said.
