Procedures

To apply for admission, applicants should contact an Admissions Representative at 1-781-348-1808 to schedule an appointment for a personal interview and to tour the campus location. During the entrance interview, prospective students will discuss the training programs and the funding options with an Admissions Representative and complete an application form.
Funding options are discussed in detail with the prospective student. Candidates that are members of One Stop Career Centers may qualify for funding provided through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), National Emergency Grants (NEG) and similarly funded programs. These funding sources allow individuals that are experiencing a separation from employment or extended period of unemployment an opportunity to develop skills necessary to transition into a secure employment opportunity ideally for the long term. Those candidates that enroll in a training program that are also currently collecting Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits may qualify for a Section 30 benefits extension while in training. The Section 30 extension allows qualifying candidates the opportunity to receive an extension of UI benefits for up until 18 additional weeks beyond their regular UI benefits period or until the end date of their training program, whichever comes first.

Once the funding source has been determined, the Admissions Representative will complete the enrollment process and review the Enrollment Agreement with the prospective candidate to help ensure that all sections are thoroughly understood. The candidate will then sign and initial these documents indicating acknowledgment of the terms of enrollment. A school director will review the assessments and the application and then notify the applicant of the status of his/her admission into the school.
