Who is the right fit?

Summit Academy OIC is looking for motivated adults who want training for a career in the fields of Information Technology, Construction, and Medical Administrative Assistant.

You could have a little or a lot of experience in any of these industries, but you’re looking for the professional training and network to move ahead in your career. Our faculty has experience instructing students in both categories.  

Please note: All vocational programs are a combination of online and on-campus learning and are 20 weeks in length. The GED program is currently online only. Assistance may be available to students who need to acquire the technology necessary for success in their program of interest. Please let us know your needs during the enrollment process. We do not offer campus housing.

Entrance exam

 

The entrance exam lets you know if you are ready to keep up with classes when they begin. You must meet the minimum scores, but don’t worry!

  • If you’ve already taken either the Accuplacer test (for vocational programs) or the TABE test (for the GED program), please submit your scores to the Admissions department to determine if you already have qualifying scores for your program of choice.
  • You may make multiple attempts at either test. Test preparation and tutoring is available.
  • Tests vary based on your program of interest.

Complete the FAFSA

Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and meet with a Financial Aid coordinator. Your Financial Aid coordinator will ensure you do not pay any tuition out of your own pocket and you will not have any student loans.

You must bring the following to your appointment:

  • FAFSA form completed online 3 business day prior to appointment. This is used to determine your eligibility for financial aid. Visit the Financial Aid page for more information.
  • Picture ID
  • Please note: Our GED program does not require FAFSA.

New Student Orientation

Participate in New Student Orientation before classes begin.

  • You will receive your new student materials, such as a map of campus, parking passes, etc. Meet your advisor, program staff and future classmates, and learn more about resources available to Summit students.

High School diploma or GED required

Vocational students are required to have a high school diploma or GED to enroll (transcripts must be made available if requested).

Our GED program is available if you don’t have a high school diploma.
