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. 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.

  • 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.

Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated non-residential 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.

Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated non-residential students must receive weekly screening center-provided testing. Fully vaccinated non-residential students are waived from this testing requirement, unless they have a close-contact exposure.

All non-residential students must complete the daily symptom tracker and attestation form 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.
