DO I QUALIFY FOR HELP:
There are no enrollment requirements for TEC programs, although some may require prerequisite course work, or demonstrated skill levels. Financial Aid applicants must qualify. Teen parents need not be enrolled in TEC but must be enrolled in secondary school in either the Boulder Valley or St. Vrain School Districts.
WHO DO I CONTACT:
Call or drop by the Main Campus to make an appointment with a counselor, to request catalogs, flyers, information packets, or to ask other questions of a general nature. Persons interested in the Teen Parenting Program may call Gloria Parmerlee-Greiner, Teen Parenting Coordinator at 447-5346 for information or an appointment.
HOW DOES IT WORK:
Depending on their needs or areas of career interests, the prospective student may be referred to a counselor for further discussion, to the Admissions Secretary, or for a secondary student, to the home high school counselor for registration materials. Most certificate classes enroll students at the semester, although numerous classes are also enrolled on a quarter basis. Students interested in Financial Aid will need to complete an aid application and meet with a financial aid officer for further assistance.
WHAT ARE MY CHANCES FOR SUCCESS:
Certificates or completion of a technical course of study qualify a student for entry-level employment, upgrading in a specific technology, or certify retraining for a new job or career. The Job Placement office assists approximately 350 students annually with employment services. Around 75% of students receiving job placement assistance find work related to their training or elect to continue their education. The Financial Aid office distributes approximately $400,000 per year in grants and scholarships, and an additional $300,000 in student loans. Approximately 300 students receive financial aid annually.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST:
High School students attend free. A small fee may be charged for some classes. Post-secondary students pay tuition. Currently tuition is $48 per credit hour. Class fees vary from $10-$150 per class.
