Am I eligible to have my tuition paid for?
The federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA) program helps you find a job or train for a new career.
- All adults, age 18 or older, are eligible to receive services. Additional intensive services are available to unemployed individuals who have been unable to obtain jobs through core services and those who are employed but need additional training services to reach self-sufficiency.
- Financial assistance is available for approved clients.
- To be eligible for the dislocated worker program, you must have received a lay off notice or have been laid off due to a company closure or mass layoff. You may also be eligible if you are currently unemployed and are unlikely to return to your prior occupation due to economic conditions in that industry.
- One-Stop Career Centers provide services locally. The One Stop Career center near you will determine if you are eligible to receive free training from a provider. There are seven locations around the SDSU area. For more information, and locations, visit www.sandiegoatwork.com or call 1-888-884-SDWP (7397).
