Adult vocational education classes are open to all persons eighteen years of age or older, who can profit from training, are capable of performing the course work, meet prerequisite requirements and can pay the applicable fees. Students applying for state licensing programs, which have a completion of high school requirement, must provide a copy of a high school diploma or high school equivalency diploma at registration.
TUITION & FEES
All courses are tuition-based. Each course has the required fee listed with the course description in the catalog. Fees include tuition, a non-refundable $15 registration fee and, where noted, textbooks and supplies. All fees must be paid in full at time of registration.
Prior to and after the first scheduled class meeting, you may request a tuition refund in accordance with Board of Education Policy. There will be no refunds after the first night of class. (A $15 registration fee will be deducted from refunds). Students must notify the Adult Education Office at 732.473.3100 x 1000 to initiate the refund process. Check refunds will take 6-8 weeks to process. We are not responsible for snow days; however, cancelled classes will be rescheduled.
Courses may be cancelled by OCVTS or merged, if enrollment does not permit economical operation. Registered students, who cannot be accommodated, may elect to transfer to another course, receive credit for a future course or receive a full refund (including the $15 registration fee).
When a textbook is required for a class, students must purchase them on their own. Information can be located on our website www.ocvts.org. Students must have the textbook for the first night of class.
SUPPLIES/PERSONAL SAFETY EQUIPMENT
Supplies used for personal projects are the responsibility of the student. Items such as auto body paint, lumber, motor oil and sandpaper are examples of personal supplies. All items used, as required training exercises, are supplied by the school. Personal safety equipment such as safety glasses and goggles must be used and are not included in the tuition fee. No one will be allowed to participate in the training instruction without required safety items.
Students must attend a minimum of 85% of all school class hours and meet the course requirements, in order to receive the recommendation of the Adult Education Principal to be eligible for a Certificate of Completion. (LICENSING, CERTIFICATION AND APPRENTICE PROGRAMS MAY REQUIRE HIGHER ATTENDANCE RATES. SEE INDIVIDUAL PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS. ALL FEES MUST BE PAID OR CERTIFICATES WILL NOT BE ISSUED.)
CLASS SIZE AND SCHEDULES
Shops and classes are designed so that each student has access to the tools and equipment necessary to acquire the skills taught in the course. All classes and shops are planned with a student-teacher ratio that provides an optimum learning situation. (A minimum of 10 students is required to begin a course). The school reserves the right to cancel any course with insufficient enrollment. Every attempt will be made to maintain the class schedule as printed. In order to accommodate the greatest number of students possible, some changes in campus locations or days may be necessary.
CLASS MEETING DATES, TIMES & LOCATION
Classes begin February 6, 2023, unless otherwise noted. Refer to individual course listing for class meeting dates and times. Students will receive notification by email upon enrollment. Classes may be extended due to inclement weather. No refunds for inclement weather.
CONDUCT ON CAMPUS/BOARD POLICIES
Students may be dismissed without refund of fees when their behavior or actions violate Board of Education Policy for students that follow NJ State Law Title 18A:37-2 “Cause for Suspension or Expulsion of Pupils.” These policies include, but are not limited to, actions such as disruptive behavior, vehicle parking violations, visitors, alcohol or drugs, smoking, vandalism, disregard of safety rules, plus any action covered by civil or criminal law.
