If pursuing a career in the transportation industry has always been a dream of yours, there’s no better time to start your training.

Technicians in the skilled trades are in high demand, and advancements in technology have opened the door to exciting new opportunities. The industry needs people like you. Instead of saying “one day,” you can make today day one of your journey toward pursuing your passion.

At Universal Technical Institute (UTI), you can create the future you’ve always dreamed of. If you like to solve problems using your head and hands, and want to train for a career without spending years in school, our accelerated programs can help you get there.1 As you chase your dreams, our team will be there to support you every step of the way.

MAKING THE DECISION TO TRANSFER

Whether your current school isn’t the right fit or you’re looking to pursue a different career path, it might be time to transfer. If this is you, know that you’re not alone—many students just like you have made the decision to transfer to UTI in order to pursue an opportunity that aligns with their passion.

 

OUR TEAM IS HERE TO HELP

At UTI, we understand that making the decision to transfer is a big one, and that the process can seem daunting. Our team is here to assist you and provide support every step of the way, from completing your application to getting started on your first day.

THE BENEFITS OF TRANSFERRING TO UTI

UTI is the nation’s leading provider of automotive, diesel, collision repair, motorcycle and marine technicians, and offers welding technology and computer numerical control (CNC) machining programs. In its 53-year history, UTI has built relationships with industry leaders and delivers training that is aligned with employer needs.

UTI isn’t your typical school. Our programs were designed for those who learn best by doing and are looking for an accelerated path to preparing for a career. Our training programs begin every 3 to 6 weeks, depending on the campus, and some programs can prepare students for the professional workforce in under a year.2

As a student, you’ll gain skills that directly apply to your future career. Our curriculum teaches everything from the ground up, so whether you have no prior experience or have worked in the industry for years, you can succeed at UTI.

Learning at UTI doesn’t take place in a typical lecture. Instead, you’ll be training in dynamic classroom and lab environments where you’ll have the opportunity to work with the same tools and technologies used by technicians in the field. Along the way, you’ll have the support of instructors and staff who are committed to your success.


CAN I TRANSFER CREDITS TO UTI?

UTI/NASCAR Tech/MMI does not accept transfer credits from other Institutions. However, students with relevant prior coursework or experience may attempt to test out of the course. If the student passes the test, the course status becomes “tested out.”

To learn more information about the transfer of other Institution credits to UTI, download the course catalog for the campus you wish to attend.

THE APPLICATION PROCESS

At UTI, we strive to make the application and enrollment process as seamless as possible for transfer students. Our online application will walk you through the process step-by-step, and requires no fee to apply.

If you have questions before applying, simply request information to get in touch with one of our Admissions Representatives. Whether you have questions about admissions requirements, tuition or programs, our team is here to provide the answers you need to feel confident in your decision to attend UTI.

PLANNING FINANCIALLY FOR YOUR TRANSFER

Transferring schools will most likely require you to re-configure your finances. At UTI, you don’t have to do this alone. Our team is here to help! We believe you should feel in control when it comes to financing your education, which is why we share costs upfront so you can plan accordingly.

A variety of options may be available to you in order to reduce the cost of your training, including financial aid, scholarships3 and grants. Additionally, some graduates could benefit from the Tuition Reimbursement Incentive Program (TRIP), which may include student loan repayment assistance, tool purchase assistance and sign-on bonuses.4

Our Financial Aid team is well-versed in the challenges faced by many transfer students and can provide guidance every step of the way. From calculating tuition costs to securing financial aid, you’ll have the support you need to navigate your finances and feel confident in your decision to train at UTI.
