The College Program is an advanced training program. To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or HSE (from our center or another educational facility) and have successfully completed a vocational trade at Job Corps. A limited number of students are accepted into the college program each year. Once they have met all the eligibility requirements, students can enroll at Big Bend Community College to earn an associate's degree.
Benefits of the College Program include:
- academic advisement, mentoring, and tutoring
- paid tuition, fees, books, and supplies
- housing and recreation
- meals provided by Job Corps, on-and-off center
- transportation to and from college of choice
