Take the first steps toward an exceptional future...


Locklin Technical Center accepts application on a non-discriminatory basis from anyone having the interest and ability to benefit from an occupation training program. All applicants must be beyond the compulsory age of attendance (age 16). Locklin Tech admits as postsecondary (adult) students those individuals who have completed their secondary school education, or students without a high school diploma or GED with an ability to benefit from career training. Secondary (high school) and Career Dual Enrollment students apply through their high school guidance department.

First time applicants to Locklin Tech are required to complete and submit an application for admission. Minimal requirements for acceptance to all programs include evidence of one of the following: high school diploma, GED, a home-study certificate or transcript from a home-student program that is equivalent to high school level and is recognized by the student's home state, or demonstrated an ability to benefit. Ability to Benefit implies that an individual student is able to perform the work required in a program of study and that the student will benefit from participation in such program.

Some admission requirements for certain programs may vary due to occupational completion requirements and licensing regulations. Please refer to each program page for details specific to individual program enrollment. Students with foreign transcripts are responsible for obtaining their own translation/evaluation which must be completed by an approved outside agency. Students should note that a translation of their foreign transcript alone is not sufficient; their educational records must be evaluated and certified (as being the equivalent to a secondary and/or postsecondary education in the United States".
