Admissions Requirements

In order to be considered for admission into a Star Career Academy school, an applicant must:

  1. Be a high school graduate, G.E.D. holder; or demonstrate the ability to benefit from the program of study as determined by the U.S. Department of Education (see below).
  2. Be 18 years of age, or over 17 and either out of school for one year, or with a letter of release from high school; and
  3. Undergo an admissions interview to demonstrate an understanding of and interest in the program of study, and be able to benefit from the training provided.
  4. Meet any special requirement for the program of study (see the official school catalogue for more information).

If not a high school graduate or if unable to document graduation or possession of a GED; applicants to programs other than Dialysis Technician, Paramedic, or Surgical Technology may demonstrate the ability to benefit by passing a Federally-approved standardized Ability-to-Benefit (ATB) admissions test.

The test is monitored and graded by a qualified third party person who meets the regulations set forth by the U.S. Department of Education. ATB-qualified tests utilized are: Wonderlic Personnel Test: SCA Brick, Philadelphia, Newark, Clifton and Egg Harbor. Career Programs Assessment Test (CPAt): SCA New York and Long Island.

After the interview, applicants are invited to see a financial aid advisor to learn of the various programs available to help cover tuition costs and to establish the basis for meeting tuition obligations. The Executive Director and/or admissions director then makes an admissions determination and provides the dates of the next available start classes. Students then sign an enrollment agreement and must attend an orientation session before starting classes. The school must also confirm receipt of the high school, GED or ATB documents and of financial aid eligibility.

Students have three (3) business days in New Jersey, seven (7) business days in New York, and five (5) business days in Pennsylvania from the date of the enrollment to cancel the enrollment agreement and receive a full refund of all advance tuition and registration fees, even if classes have begun.
