GAP Program Info


Gap Tuition Assistance Program

The Gap Tuition Assistance program provides tuition funding for approved Continuing Education certificate training programs including the Truck Driving Prep Program, and Welding AWS Qualification.  

Since non-credit certificate programs are not eligible for federal financial aid, this program bridges the funding gap for those students pursuing short-term certificates.
