Admissions

STEPS TO ENROLLMENT

Step 1. Create a Student Profile Here: Create a student profile by filling out an online application. This Student Profile helps FTI’s Admissions, Student Services, and Financial Aid personnel assist you in successful enrollment. Creating a Student Profile does not guarantee or obligate you to enrollment with FTI. Please contact a member of FTI’s Admissions Team for assistance at (386) 447-4345 if you have any questions.

Step 2. Meet with our Admissions Team and begin your pathway to success: Meet a campus admissions team member in person or by phone to discuss your interests and find out about our programs of study and career training opportunities. If you are undecided about a career or educational pathway, the admissions team member will explain options and provide support to assist you in making an educated decision. You will be offered the opportunity to tour our facilities, your program of interest’s classrooms, and meet with the program facilitator.

To schedule an in-person appointment, or to discuss your interests, please call FTI’s admissions team at (386) 447-4345. 
Health Careers and Commercial Vehicle Driving programs require a meeting with the program facilitator before registration. For more detailed information regarding programs, completion rates, school rules and regulations, schedule and more click here.

Explore Financial Aid Resources (if applicable): FTI offers several ways to help fund your education. Financial Aid, local agency sponsorships, and scholarships are examples of funding opportunities. If you are seeking financial aid assistance, FTI will provide several options and resources to explore. All students are required to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) regardless of the program’s PELL eligibility as it is a factor in applying for certain scholarships and other sources of student funding. For questions regarding Financial Aid, please call the FTI Financial Aid Specialist for assistance at (386) 447-4345 ext-1199. For a listing of other Financial Aid Resources click here.
