We want to make sure UTI is the right fit for your goals. Once you decide this is the place to start training, there are some requirements to cover to make sure you are eligible to attend our trade school. Review those requirements below then speak with an Admissions Representative to answer your questions.
To be eligible for enrollment, a prospective student must be at least 16 years of age. Please note that all students enrolling under the age of 18 require a parent or guardian to execute the Enrollment Agreement.
The school determines, with reasonable certainty and in advance of class start date, that the applicant has proper qualifications to complete training. Each Enrollment Agreement and other pertinent information submitted by the applicant
will be reviewed prior to starting classes.
All students, upon acceptance of an Enrollment Agreement, are conditionally admitted to UTI. The conditional status remains until the student's documentation is judged acceptable. Allowing adequate lead time (ideally 30 days minimum) for both
evaluation of the document(s) submitted and an alert regarding any deficiency prior to any planned relocation to attend school is highly advised.
To comply with the school's entrance requirements prior to starting or re-enrolling, students must supply and UTI must accept one of the following documents:
Students possessing a certificate of high school completion (i.e., completed all courses but did not pass all state standards-based requirements such as testing), or high school diploma or transcript indicating the student earned a special education
diploma that did not meet all of the state standards-based requirements must provide a copy of a state-issued GED or state-authorized equivalent exam prior to starting class.
These students may submit a copy of official ATB scores from the previous school or take a new ATB test for UTI admission.
Foreign education documents from outside the United States or its territories that cannot immediately be confirmed as valid proof of high school completion by a college official must be submitted for assessment with a third-party evaluation
agency at the prospective student's expense.
In addition to the general Admissions Procedures/ Entrance Requirements provided above, applicants for Cummins Engines and Cummins Power Generation programs must satisfy all of the following requirements:
Satisfying all admissions requirements does not guarantee admission to the program. If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the number of available spots, the institution will select the most qualified applicants based upon GPA, attendance
and interview responses.
A GED or state-authorized equivalent exam is not required for students who do not enroll in a full, approved program. If a student chooses to later enroll in a full program, all admissions requirements listed above must be satisfied.
As a condition of enrollment, Universal Technical Institute, Inc. (“UTI”) requires each student to sign an enrollment agreement containing a binding arbitration provision. The full arbitration provision can be found here in the Admissions
section of the campus catalog (https://www.uti.edu/programs/catalogs). Under the arbitration provision, each student and UTI agree to resolve through binding and mandatory arbitration any dispute between the student and UTI or any current or former
employee(s) of UTI. Arbitration is the referral of a dispute to an impartial person (an arbitrator) for a final and binding determination of the dispute. In agreeing to binding and mandatory arbitration, the parties voluntarily give up certain rights,
including the right to pursue a dispute in court, the right to a trial by a judge or jury, rights to appeal, and other rights that may be available in a court, such as broader discovery rights. As provided by the arbitration provision, the parties
also give up the right to bring or participate in any class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or any other type of action or proceeding in which anyone acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity on behalf of others.
If you have any questions about this arbitration provision or the arbitration process, please contact Student Services. UTI cannot require the student to participate in arbitration or any internal dispute resolution process offered by UTI prior to
filing a borrower defense to repayment application with the U.S. Department of Education pursuant to 34 C.F.R. § 685.206(e); UTI cannot, in any way, require the student to limit, relinquish, or waive his or her ability to pursue filing a borrower
defense claim, pursuant to § 685.206(e) at any time; and any arbitration required by this pre-dispute arbitration agreement tolls the limitations period for filing a borrower defense to repayment application pursuant to § 685.206(e)(6)(ii).
