Ancilla Takes Part in “You Can. Go Back” Program

Ancilla College NEWAncilla College is taking part in a state initiative aimed at helping Hoosiers with some college credit return to college and succeed. The You Can. Go Back. program initiated by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education is a Learn More Indiana initiative.

It offers students exclusive incentives to return to school. Ancilla College Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Joanna Blount says the two-year private school is uniquely set up to help students succeed. She says Ancilla offers online, evening and accelerated courses, financial incentives, one-year certificate programs and more to make college attractive to learners looking to step up their career.

Professional advisers at Ancilla review each student’s case individually and match them with the right program. Blount says they will develop an academic plan that best fits the student’s goals and situation. She adds classrooms are often filled with students from college-age through retirement. Additionally, Ancilla hosts classes on different days of the week and at different times of the day to accommodate working and family schedules.

Programs and incentives available to eligible returning students include academic credit for work or military experience using the ACE (American Council on Education) evaluation; prior learning assessment through testing and departmental exams; military financial benefits as part of the Post 9/11 GI Bill’s Yellow Ribbon program; a tuition freeze for “You Can. Go Back.” students who maintain continuous full-time enrollment; career assistance with job preparation, internships and job hunting tips and eight certificate programs.
