Enroll Questions
How Much Does it Cost?
Will you help me get a job?

In general, you will need to complete an on-line admissions application, take the admissions assessments, and then visit Student Services to set up a class schedule. Many programs have specific admissions standards and some have a competitive application process. To find the information for the specific program that interests you, start with our list of programs and then click on the program of your choice. There you’ll find all of the details regarding enrollment in that program along with a link to the on-line admissions application.

What are the ‘admissions assessments’?

We want to give you the best chance to succeed, so before you start we check to make sure that your math, reading and language skills are appropriate for the program you’ve chosen. You can learn more about the test you’ll take on the Admissions web page. If your scores are a little low, don’t worry. We have classes to help build your skills so you can succeed in your chosen training program.

What if I’m not sure what to study?

We’ll be happy to help you identify careers that would be a good match for your interests and abilities. Please contact Career Center and ask to speak to a Career Advisor.

What will by class schedule be?

Your class schedule will be determined by the availability of the course or program that you take. The availability of classes is listed on the individual web pages for each program. When you enroll, a member of the Student Services staff will assist you in creating a schedule and can advise you on what you will need to do if you have to change that schedule.

When do I go to class?

During the time which you are scheduled to attend. If you occasionally need to attend at a different time – to make up some missed work, for example – you should discuss that with your instructor.

How long will it take to finish my training?

The length of each program is based on the skills that you’ll need to learn to succeed in your chosen career. You can find the length of your program by going to the Program Page and selecting your program from the list. You’ll find the number of hours you’ll need to complete.

What about attendance and grades?

Each program at UBATC has a written orientation which includes information about attendance and grade expectations and requirements for that particular program. If you have questions about these expectations and requirements, please talk to your instructor.

What if I need to take a break from my training?

We recognize that students may need a little time off during their training. The staff in Student Services will be happy to assist you in taking advantage of the ‘Leave of Absence’ policy. Please feel free to drop in during normal business hours to find out more or you can read the policy.

What if I want to enroll for less than 12 hours per week?

If you are a “certificate seeking” student, you must schedule a minimum of 20 hours-per-week .

Students who are not “certificate seeking” may enroll for as few as 10 hours per week.

In order to be considered a half-time student, you must be enrolled for at least 20 hours-per-week. If you want to be considered full-time, you’ll need to be enrolled at least 30-hours-week.

It is important to note, however, that many sponsors require that students maintain full-time status.

What happens if I drop the course?

If you drop a course during the first five school days and have not submitted any work to be entered into your student record, you are eligible for a complete withdrawal from the course and a full refund of the course tuition and fees.

After the fifth day, you are committed to the class and are no longer eligible for either withdrawal or refund. Similarly, once you submit work that is entered into your student record, you are no longer eligible for withdrawal or refund.

Do I have to attend the class?

Your attendance will be tracked. When you go to class, you’ll clock in and out on the student station near the door. Your clock-ins will be compared against your schedule to calculate an attendance percentage. Check with your instructor (and sponsor if you have one) to find out what the attendance requirements are for your program.

If I re-take a course, do I have to start form the beginning and re-do all of the work?

No. When you re-register for a course, you may begin at the last point you completed and work to the end of the course.

What happens if I finish the course early?

If you complete the course work before the end date, you have the option to register for a new class and get started right away. Or, if you prefer, you can take a little break until the end date for the course and then start your next one. You don not get a refund if you finish the class early.

There is a small registration fee to get started. After that tuition is charged per enrolled hour if it’s an open-entry/open-exit class. Some programs are structured, and costs are calculated differently. On each program page you’ll find information about the total cost for the specific program.

How am I charged for the class?

When you sign up for a course, you’ll be expected to pay the full cost of the course up-front. Program students need to pay for the first month up front, and the following months will be billed based on number of hours the students enrolled. To find the cost for the course, go to the web page for your program, or visit with a registrar.

How much is tuition?

Tuition cost is generally $2.00/hour (effective July 1, 2013). Tuition and related fees will be calculated by course based upon the number of hours within the course. Your specific tuition bill will be calculated when you meet with a representative of UBATC. Tuition is due when you register for a course.

The entire purpose of the training at UBATC is to prepare you for a job and we want to give you the best chance possible at finding employment. Our instructors are required to meet with local employers twice a year, forming their “Advisory Committee”. We will assist in anyway possible, visit with your instructor.

I’m an adult, but I didn’t finish high school. Can I still enroll at UBATC?

Yes, you can take courses at UBATC. But most programs require a GED. Visit UBATC’s Assessment Center to see if you qualify.

Do you have a cafeteria?

We have a cafeteria for students to each lunch in, but we do not have food services available for purchase.
