Tuition & Application Fee

Course fees are established to cover the operating expenses of the The Career Center Adult Technical Training programs which are self-supporting. There is no out-of-state tuition.

All programs have an registration fee of $30.00. Some programs which require additional applicant evaluations will have an additional application fee. These are noted in the catalog.


Our Admissions Office is here to assist those who are considering enrollment in one of our programs. We will work with you through the admissions process, scheduling appointments of those who need financial aid and providing any assessment testing that may be required for entrance into the adult programs. It is suggested that you begin your application process early, since all programs have limited enrollment. Tuition prices are subject to change pending Board of Education approval.

Registration is confirmed by your payment of application fees on a first-come, first served basis. The school reserves the right to cancel a class due to insufficient enrollment, up to the day before a class is to begin. Students are urged to register early to ensure a place in the class.

Each class has a minimum and maximum number of sudents. Classes will be canceled and registration fees returned in full if the minimum number of tuition-paying students is not reached.


Refunds are processed through the school treasury department and are made within eight weeks of the withdrawal form completion. The refunds are made according to Board Policy and are as follows upon written notification of student withdrawal:

  • Full Refund: Full refund (less initial $30.00 registration fee**), if student has withdrawn three business days before the first day of class.

  • 50% Tuition Refund: If student has withdrawn within the first calendar week of class, they will be responsible for 50% of tuition; tuition paid over 50% will be refunded.

  • No Refund: After the first week of class or for individuals that fail to withdraw three (3) business days prior to the first meeting of class (No-Shows included).

**This fee is refundable up to the point of Program Orientation or the Work Keys® Assessments, which ever happens first. If the student has not completed either the orientation or the Work Keys® then the deposit is refundable.


These items, when required, are not included in the course fees and are not refundable.
