Admissions Process

Upon receipt of your application, FTG staff begins to evaluate your potential for success. We determine whether your goals and time frame are realistic and attainable. Prior to acceptance into the program, FTG staff conducts personal interviews, examines your written statement of purpose, and evaluates your transcripts and other, pertinent documentation. Your application file must be complete, in order for us to complete our pre-program assessment. If we believe your goals and time frame are realistic, we will send you a formal letter of acceptance into the program.

If you are accepted, we begin together to prepare for you to join us in this exciting endeavor! Acceptance is not complete until we have received your program deposit. Once your deposit has been received, FTG staff begins to design and customize your Workplace Study placement, to meet your specific learning objectives.

First, we reach out and identify workplace study program partners whose backgrounds and areas of expertise match your learning needs. This step helps assure the quality of the program design for you. We decide upon a start date, and begin to make specific plans for your arrival.

Once your program begins, it will be your responsibility to maintain focus, discipline and regular attendance. FTG staff will monitor your progress on a daily and weekly basis, to assure that your learning objectives are being achieved. If mitigating circumstances such as illness, accident or a death in the family compromises your progress, we will suspend your program until such time as you can continue. If necessary, we can revisit the design of the program if your original expectations prove unattainable, and recalibrate the schedule to assure your success. Program recalibration requires additional program fees, to accommodate a different schedule.
