With COVID-19, things are a little different on campus. Like, we’re keeping class sizes smaller, cleaning and sanitizing shared spaces frequently, requiring face coverings, and more. We are working with state and local health departments and following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines on campus.

The bottom line? We’re as focused on your future as we’ve ever been and we’ll do everything we can to keep you safe while you’re at Job Corps.

I Am a Non-Residential Job Corps Student

I Am in Virtual Enrollment

I Want To Be a Job Corps Student

We know you’re eager to get back to Job Corps. Trust us; we are eager to have you! Our goal is to make sure that you’re returning to a safe and healthy environment where you can learn and train. Every center has a plan for keeping students as safe as possible on campus, including following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and working with its state and local health departments. When you do return to campus, a lot will look different, and it may take some adjustments; but please know that you’ll receive the same hands-on training as before, and you’ll be as safe as possible.
 

The best way to stay up to date on your campus’s plan and schedule is to stay in contact with your center staff. They will have the most updated information on when you will return. Also, let them know what help or support you need while you’re not on campus.

 


Along with our staff and students on center, we’re also encouraging virtual enrollment students to get the COVID-19 vaccine BEFORE they come on campus. If you do decide to get vaccinated, you can skip many of the COVID-19 safety precautions and restrictions. The more vaccinated people on campus, the faster we can get back to normal training and campus life.

Get started today by connecting with an admissions counselor. We’ll help you find the right fit for you!

Unvaccinated students must receive a COVID-19 test no more than 5 days before their initial return to their center. Centers will arrange appointment times with students to visit the center for testing. Students must be notified of their test results by phone prior to arriving on-center.

Non-residential students must test for COVID-19 at the point of arrival, regardless of vaccination status. Students will also receive weekly COVID-19 testing.

Non-residential students must complete the daily symptom tracker prior to coming to center, or upon check-in on center.

For the time being, non-residential students will not train with residential students. Non-residential students will also have separate dining and break areas and cannot use the recreation areas.

Yes! Non-residential students will just dine separately from residential students to reduce risk of transmission. You will also still get basic health care services on campus. Your center will have more information to share with you once they let you know that you can return to campus.

There is a federal mandate for federal and contractor staff to be vaccinated. There is not a formal policy for students although we highly encourage all students to get the vaccine. The more vaccinated people on campus, the faster we can get back to normal training and campus life. Fully vaccinated students will also have more freedom to move around on center.

The best way to stay up to date on your campus’s plan and schedule is to stay in contact with your center staff. They will have the most updated information on when you will join us on campus. Also, let them know what help or support you need while you’re not on campus.

In the meantime, keep up with your virtual enrollment courses so you’re ready to join us on campus when the time comes. We also encourage all virtual students to get the COVID-19 vaccine while they wait to come on campus. The more vaccinated people on campus, the faster we can get back to normal training and campus life. And if you do decide to get vaccinated, you can skip many of the COVID-19 safety precautions and restrictions. We hope to see you soon!

Once you complete your 60 days of virtual enrollment, you’ll be scheduled for campus arrival. The best way to stay up to date on your campus plan and schedule is to be in contact with your center staff. Let them know what help or support you need in the meantime while you’re not on campus.
 

Smaller class sizes: We’ll have fewer students on campus, which means you’ll have more opportunities for one-on-one instruction time between yourself and your instructor.

More detailed cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting routines: We are increasing how frequently we clean common areas, and we’re asking our students to help us out by wiping down surfaces like desks, keyboards, and training equipment.

Face coverings: You are required to wear a face covering at all times on center, except while eating, alone in your dorm room or sleeping.

Testing and quarantine: When you arrive on campus, you’ll be required to get tested for COVID-19. Depending on your test results, you’ll complete one of the following quarantine schedules:

  • Negative COVID-19 test = 7-day quarantine. You will also be asked to fill out a daily symptom tracker.
  • Positive COVID-19 test = 14-day quarantine. You will also be asked to fill out a daily symptom tracker.
  • Continued COVID-19 testing on days 5–7 after beginning quarantine.

Virtual learning until you are cleared to join campus classes and activities.

7-day quarantine following leave with testing on days 5–7 after return.

Face coverings: Fully vaccinated students are required to wear a face covering while indoors and on public transportation, but not while outside.

Fully vaccinated students no longer have to quarantine upon arrival to campus, and you no longer have to follow weekly COVID-19 testing protocols.

You can also share dorm rooms with other fully vaccinated students.

Fully vaccinated students are allowed to leave campus, and do not have to quarantine upon return.

Fully vaccinated students can also waive quarantine after CCE (close-contact exposure) with a person who is determined to be infected. They will be requested to monitor for symptoms and test on days 3–5 after CCE. If a vaccinated student develops symptoms consistent with COVID-19, they must follow the same quarantine protocol as unvaccinated students.

Yes! We’ve made changes on campus to protect your health and safety; but you will still get housing, meals, basic health care, and a community that will support you every step of the way. Your center will have more information to share with you once they let you know that you can return to campus.

Yes! Job Corps is accepting applications for immediate arrival on-campus, but we are also accepting applications for delayed arrival. Delayed arrival, called virtual enrollment, allows new students to begin their first 60 days in Job Corps online before they arrive at a Job Corps center. Learn more about your options here.

We are working as fast as possible to make sure that Job Corps continues to enroll, place, train, and educate every eligible applicant. The best way to stay up to date on the status of your application is to reach out to an admissions counselor.

Not yet, but Job Corps is offering virtual enrollment for applicants who can complete their first 60 days of orientation and career preparation online. After you complete the first 60 days, you will transition to your assigned Job Corps center and dive into your academic and hands-on training. This means you can get started on your Job Corps journey faster while we work to safely bring new students on campus.

Along with our staff and students on center, we’re also encouraging virtual enrollment students to get the COVID-19 vaccine BEFORE they come on campus.

  • Most job training skills just can’t be taught online. Sixty days is enough time for centers to plan for your safe arrival on campus, while also getting you into the hands-on training you need to really succeed as soon as possible.
  • Sixty days can also give students some needed extra time to personally prepare themselves, their families, and maybe even their employers for the move from home to campus.
Learning online is not right for everyone; but if you are focused, are organized, and can work on your own without always having a structured schedule, you may be a good candidate for virtual enrollment and online learning. Job Corps can even provide you with a laptop and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
 

While we can’t make a decision for you, we can tell you that we’d love to have you at Job Corps. Job Corps can provide you with hands-on job training AND education, as well as housing, meals, and basic health care, all 100% free. Job Corps offers training in industries that are in high demand and can lead to good-paying jobs with opportunities to grow.

If you’ve already applied, be sure to stay in touch with your admissions counselor. Your counselor can help you determine if virtual enrollment is right for you or let you know when your center is ready for you to join us on campus. If you haven’t applied, what are you waiting for?
