CARTERVILLE -- John A. Logan College officials have announced plans to hold a Saturday Signup Day on August 7 from 9 to Noon. College staff will be available to register students and assist with financial aid and other student services.

According to John A. Logan College Provost, Melanie Pecord, the event is designed for working adults.

"We recognize that for many in our region, finding time to register for classes during the normal workweek can be next to impossible," said Pecord. "To better serve this population, we have planned a day that will allow these students to come to the College on a Saturday and have a one-stop-shop for registration."

Pecord added that new students could help expedite the event by visiting the College website at and filling in some information before Saturday.

"We encourage new students to go ahead and fill out the Application for Admissions and fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)," said Pecord. "Also, if a student has any transcripts from a previously attended college or university, that will help, but is not necessary for Saturday."

Walk-ins are welcome, or students can preregister for the Saturday Signup Event at For more information contact the Advisement Office at (618) 985-2828, Ext 8070.
