General Admissions Requirements and Procedures


All students must be 16 years of age or older and withdrawn from the K–12 school system or approved for dual enrollment. Students in an apprenticeship program must be 18 years of age. Commercial Vehicle Driving students must be 19 years of age to enter the program. FTC recommends 21+ years of age for interstate travel.


A high school diploma/GED is not required for applicants to enroll in technical certificate programs, with the exception of Apprenticeship programs. Students can be simultaneously enrolled in GED programs and technical certificate programs. Students who lack a high school diploma may be eligible for Federal Student Aid through Ability to Benefit (ATB) alternatives which involve obtaining a GED while concurrently enrolled in an eligible career pathway program. 

Test Scores

Minimum SAT/ACT scores are not required to attend courses at FTC for any program.

International Students

FTC does not admit international students with an M-1 Student Visa, as FTC is not a Certified SEVP (Student an Exchange Visitor Program) School.

Transfer Students

Applicants who have previously attended another accredited post-secondary or technical institution may be considered for admission as a transfer student. All transfer students must submit official transcripts from the last post-secondary institution attended and any other college(s) from which the student wishes to receive transfer credit. The Program Supervisor or Teacher of each program may award transfer credit and hours for applicable courses and may consult with appropriate faculty in the final decision. Evaluation may take from four to six weeks.
