How to Apply

Admissions Policy

Postsecondary Students

Applicants for technical programs must attend one of the departmental orientations which are scheduled on a weekly basis, or view our online orientation on the website and then come in to take the TABE test. Individual counselor interviews are scheduled following each orientation program to discuss test results, program placement, special needs, and registration procedures. Referrals to the Vocational Preparatory Instruction (VPI) Center are made if minimum basic skill levels have not been achieved. Registration for postsecondary students is held five times annually (August, October, January, March, and June).

Secondary Students

Applicants must complete an Application for Technical Center Enrollment through their high school guidance counselor. The completed application is forwarded to Sheridan Technical Center along with a copy of the student's transcript. All high school applicants are scheduled for a counselor interview with their parents.

Orientation Programs

Departmental orientation programs are scheduled on a weekly basis as listed below. The orientation programs provide information pertaining to curricula, costs, entry requirements, support services, financial aid, and general institutional policies. Students may view an online orientation on the website and then come in to test.  Basic skills testing is conducted immediately following orientation. Photo identification and a $10.00 fee are required to participate in testing. For Disability Services requiring accomodations for orientation or a program, contact Johanna Kelly, ESE Specialist at 754-321-5447.  Arrangements for accomodations must be made  prior to orientation and testing.  If a sign language interpreter is required, a request must be made at least ten working days in advance.
