Step 1:  Check Deadlines, Request & Review Information Packet & Work with Advisor

Application Deadline
  • October 31: Spring Term (January start date) - Full-time Day Class

Request the Welding Services Information Packet: This will open an email to the program advisor. Please include your name, phone number and email in the note you send, along with any initial questions.

Because this is a limited access program with many variables and a special application requirement it's important for prospective students to receive advising from the program advisor, Phil Sweeney. You can request an appointment in the same email request for the Information packet or call or email to set up an appointment.  Please note that an appointment is not necessary to apply for the program unless you require additional information about the program.
