Procedure for Admission
The following procedures are required for all student applicants:
- Upon arrival at the Institute, the applicant completes a non-binding pre- application.
- The applicant then meets with an Admissions Advisor to discuss the program, and the educational objectives of the applicant. At this time, the applicant is provided a tour of the facility.
- After meeting with an Admission’s Advisor, the applicant meets with a Financial Aid Officer, who further discusses the applicant’s educational objectives, and provides the applicant with information relative to all charges for training, including possible tuition increases, the methods of paying for the program, and the availability of financial aid opportunities.
- If the applicant will be applying for financial aid, a return appointment is scheduled with a Financial Aid Officer so that financial aid can be explained in more detail, and eligibility can be determined.
- If the applicant does not possess a high school diploma or the recognized equivalent of a high school diploma, such as a General Education Development Certificate (G.E.D.), the appropriate Ability-to-Benefit test is scheduled. Please note: Effective July 1, 2012, students admitted under the ability to benefit test will no longer be eligible to receive Title IV funding.
- If it is determined that the applicant meets all of the entrance requirements, the student enrollment agreement is completed, making sure applicant is fully informed of the obligations, responsibilities, and rights of students before it is signed. The enrollment agreement is then accepted by the appropriate Institute official.
