WHAT TO EXPECT

As a parent, you may have questions about the admissions process at UTI. Your Admissions Representative will review everything in detail with you, but below is some general information.


IN-HOME INTERVIEW

The admissions process is a little unconventional at UTI. We want to make sure that we are the right fit for your child and that he or she is the right fit for the industry. Once your son or daughter has expressed interest in attending UTI, your Admissions Representative will set up an in-home Interview for the family to discuss what the industry is like and the types of jobs it can offer,6  the programs available at UTI, the expectations as a student, and tuition and financial aid.10  At the end of the interview, the family will have the opportunity to complete the enrollment application.

New Student Checklist

NEXT STEPS

Although the application may be finished and the required documents submitted, there are still other steps to complete before your child starts school. Your Admissions Representative will review the new student checklist with you during the in-home interview and provide you with deadlines to complete the remaining items. Examples include completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), saving money for relocation and housing (if needed), and finding employment for your child when he or she is in school.1  It’s important to stay involved in this process to ensure everything is completed before your child’s start date.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

At UTI, we understand the valuable role parents have in their child’s education. Our research has shown that the more involved and supportive the parents are, the more likely their child will be successful in school. Here are some ways you can help your child prepare for school.


FINDING A JOB

We have Local Employment Specialists available at each campus to help our students succeed while they’re in school and after graduation. And we have a centralized team that specializes in sourcing graduate jobs and building national relationships with dealers, distributors and other large employers across the country.

While our services also include résumé help and interview skills, you can support your child in a number of ways:

  • Provide guidance on filling out job applications
  • Help research the industry where he or she wants to work and find local employers to answer any questions you or your child may have about the industry
  • Set up mock interviews to help them practice
  • Help research employers around the campus to see what part- or full-time jobs are available

FINANCIAL AID

We want to make the financial aid process as smooth as possible. We offer a complimentary Financial Aid Service Center to help you and your family complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The process only takes approximately 15-30 minutes to complete. To prepare, you can do the following:

  • Apply for an FSA ID at fsaid.ed.gov
  • Complete your taxes.
  • Compile the required information for your call with the Financial Aid Service Center. This includes your child’s Social Security number and driver's license number, and your previous year's tax return or most recent pay stub
