Financial Aid Services
After filling out the FAFSA, applicants may qualify for various forms of financial aid. The sooner they complete the process, the better options they have. Examples include federal Pell grants, as well as Stafford or PLUS loans. There are scholarships available too, through both the Florida Department of Education and Jones Technical Institute itself.
Students have access to a lounge and fitness center. Jones Technical Institute also provides lockers and helps secure housing for those who need it. To stay focused on academic and personal goals, there are advising services. The Learning Resource Center is a useful tool as well, housing a variety of instructional materials.
J-Tech has a transitional program to help students craft resumes, look for jobs, apply online, interview, write, and develop soft skills. This allows graduates to move into the workplace effectively. Career advisors then assist with job placement and keep a list of current openings. Employers may take advantage of these services too, and often recruit on campus.
Veteran and Military Services
Veterans and active duty members of the military can use education benefits on the 4-week CDL training program at J-Tech. They may also opt to be automotive or diesel technicians. Applicants can visit the Financial Aid Office to find out their available benefits, such as the GI Bill, Fry Scholarship, or other type of assistance.
