Eager to get to Job Corps? Trust us; we are eager to have you. Our goal is to make sure that you’re coming 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. This plan includes following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, working with its state and local health departments, and adhering to the process for determining when it is safest to bring small groups of students back to campus. Some centers are opening their campuses now, and others will be doing so over the coming weeks. 

If you have applied, the best way to stay up to date on campus plans and schedules is to stay in contact with your admissions counselor. Tell your counselor what help, support, or information you need while you’re not on campus. And, in addition to supporting you, your counselor will let you know when your center is ready for you.

While we can’t make a decision for you, we can tell you that, as soon as campuses are ready for you, we’d love to have you in Job Corps. Job Corps can provide you with the education AND hands-on training you need for the career you want. If you’ve already applied, be sure to stay in touch with your admissions counselor. Your counselor will answer any questions you may have and let you know when your center is ready for you to join us. If you haven’t applied, what are you waiting for? Visit https://bit.ly/2OePZhT or call (800) 733-JOBS [5627].

The short answer? As soon as it’s safe to do so and when you can experience all of what Job Corps has to offer. COVID-19 disrupted our normal operations. We want your time in Job Corps to provide you with the academic and career skills training you expect.

Even though some campuses aren't resuming on-campus operations yet, students are continuing their training—just online! More good news? We are still accepting applications. Apply today so that you can join us as soon as campuses are welcoming new students. Visit www.joinjobcorps.com/apply or call (800) 733-JOBS [5627].

Virtual training (or “distance learning”) is available to current Job Corps students. However, at this time, distance learning is not yet available for those not enrolled in Job Corps.

That’s a great and really important question! Everyone on campus is expected to wear a face covering. We will give every student a reusable face covering, but we suggest that you also bring a couple of backups. You must wear a face covering in indoor spaces (except your dorm room) and all common areas, like bathrooms, classrooms, training areas, cafeterias, and lounges, even if you can maintain 6 feet of physical space. The center will provide you training and information on the requirements that you must follow to help us keep you and other students safe. Face coverings help us to “stop the spread.”

Your campus staff will ask you to help them maintain a clean campus by wiping down surfaces like desks, keyboards, and training equipment. You and other students will be asked to fill out a form each day reporting any symptoms of COVID-19 infection. Also, thermometers are available in several places, including dorms, so you can take your own temperature.

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. This plan includes following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, working with its state and local health departments, and adhering to the process for determining when it is safest to bring small groups of students back to campus. Some centers are opening their campuses now and others will be doing so over the coming weeks. 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. Let them know what help or support you need while you’re not on campus. They want you back and will have the most updated information on when you will return. And in addition to supporting you, they’ll let you know when campuses are ready for your return.

In the meantime, continue to participate in distance learning. It’s the best way to stay on course and continue progressing toward your goals. We hope to see you soon!

Some centers have been given the thumbs-up to start slowly bringing students back. Not all centers have resumed on-campus operations, and not all students are back on campus at the same time. We are closely monitoring national, state, and local health and safety guidelines, and other things, to determine which campuses are ready.

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 while you’re not on campus. They want you back and will have the most updated information on when you will return.

Here are a few things you can expect once you get back to campus.

  • 14-day quarantine: When you first return to campus, you’ll be required to quarantine for 14 days and continue virtual learning until you are cleared to join campus classes and activities.
  • COVID-19 testing: Along with the required quarantine when you arrive, you will be asked to consent to testing twice — once at the start of quarantine and then at the end of the quarantine.
  • Face coverings:  Wearing a face covering in indoor spaces and common areas will help us keep you and others safe. 
  • Smaller class sizes: We’ll have fewer students on campus, which means you’ll have more opportunities for one-on-one instruction time between you 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. We are going to do our part, and the students will need to do their part!
  • Suspended weekend passes and holiday breaks: We are suspending weekend passes and breaks to help keep the risk of the virus being brought to campus low. This helps to keep students safe and able to keep working toward their goals.

Yes. You and other students will be asked to fill out a form each day reporting any symptoms of COVID-19 infection. Also, thermometers are available in several places, including dorms, so you can take your own temperature.

We’re all in this together, and that means each one of us must do our part. Everyone on campus is expected to wear face coverings in all indoor spaces, except in your own dorm room. Your campus staff will also ask you to help them maintain a clean campus by wiping down surfaces like desks, keyboards, and training equipment.

It is really quite simple: Follow all the safety rules! This includes wearing your face covering, not breaking quarantine, avoid gathering in large groups, keeping at least 6 feet between you and others, and washing your hands frequently. If you do those things, then that will help us keep everyone safe and healthy.


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.

The best way to get help with distance learning is to stay in contact with your center staff. Let them know what help or support you need while you’re not on campus. Remember, you are required to spend a certain number of hours each week engaged in distance learning; but if you are struggling please reach out to your counselor or instructor.  They want you back and will find ways to support you while you are off campus.

Yes, Job Corps is accepting applications. We are working as fast as possible to make sure Job Corps continues to enroll, educate, train, and place every eligible applicant. The best way to stay up to date on the status of your application is to get in touch with your admissions counselor.
