Admissions

FMTC is a public post-secondary institution that accepts applications on a nondiscriminatory basis from anyone having the interest, ability, and desire to benefit from career and technical education programs. To assist students in meeting their goals, there are minimum age, educational, and health requirements established for each program. Our Admissions staff is happy to assist you with any stage of the enrollment process!

Applicants must be at least 16 years of age and should be academically, physically, and emotionally capable of meeting the essential tasks of the chosen program. Completion of a high school diploma or GED may be required for some programs.

Programs are filled on a first come, first served basis, with the exception of Practical Nursing.  Your seat is not reserved until you have successfully completed the enrollment process and paid your non-refundable application fee of $45.

Admission Steps

  1. Get Informed!

    • Make sure you’ve taken the virtual tour and attended the virtual Information Session.
    • Do you still have questions?
      • Attend a Live ZOOM with an Admissions Specialist to ask specific questions.  We’re happy to help!  Live Zoom Sessions will be offered for those who need them on Tuesday Mornings at 9:30 a.m. and on Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. Click Here for Instructions.
  2. Prepare your Documents

    Complete and save the following documents, and have them digitally available to upload into the application form.

    (Please be sure forms are accurate, completed in their entirety, and signed; failure to do so will result in a delay in processing your application.)

    You will also need:

    • TWO documents proving Florida Residency for In-state tuition. (MUST show 12 months of residency!)
    • Determine Florida residency for tuition purposes.
    • Residency Requirements
    • Are you under 24 years of age?  PLEASE watch the video to make sure you are submitting the correct documentation.    Here’s a video that will help.
    • A picture of the Student’s Driver’s License or State ID card (if you are under 24 and using a parent’s residency documents)
    • Pursuant to Section 1009.21(12), F.S., students denied the classification of Florida resident for tuition purposes have the right of appeal. Appeals must be in writing to the Residency Appeals Committee, care of the Student Services Office. Appeals should be made as soon as possible after receipt of the initial decision and prior to payment of the first semester’s tuition. All appeals will be reviewed by the Residency Appeals Committee, and the Committee’s decisions are final. Students classified as a non-resident for tuition purposes can reapply for residency consideration at the beginning of any term of enrollment.
  3.  Transcripts

    You will also need to mail or have e-mailed an official copy of your High School Transcripts to FMTCAdmissions@leeschools.net.

    If you have college transcripts (especially if you are using your awarded Associates Degree or higher to exempt from Basic Skills testing) they will also need to be sent to FMTCAdmissions@leeschools.net.

  4.  Basic Skills Mastery

  • Students must demonstrate Basic Skills Mastery.  We administer the Test of Adult Basic Education (T.A.B.E.) for students who cannot provide other documentation of Basic Skills.  Acceptable forms of documentation to exempt from testing are:
    • An official college transcript showing an Associate’s Degree or higher
    • An official High School transcript from a Florida Public High School showing a standard diploma earned after 2007
    • A Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) score report showing a Reading Score of at least 24, a Writing and Language Score of at least 25, and a Math Score of at least 24 dated within two years of program enrollment
    • An American College Testing (ACT) score report showing Reading score of at least 19, English at or above 17 and Math at or above 19 dated within two years of program enrollment.
    • An official GED transcript showing passing scores dated within two years of program enrollment.
  • The Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE), is administered on campus for a fee of $30. Students who do not demonstrate at least a level 6 in Reading, Math, and/or Language on the TABE exam will be referred for remediation prior to enrollment in a program at either the Applied Academics for Adult Education program at FMTC or an Adult Basic Education program at the school district. Registration for the TABE.
  • To Submit Official Transcripts  Request all high school/GED and college transcripts to be sent to FMTC Admissions, 3800 Michigan Avenue, Fort Myers, FL 33916. Transcripts may also be delivered in person if they are in a sealed envelope or emailed directly from the school to FMTCAdmissions@leeschools.net. If you do not have a high school diploma or GED, you may still be eligible to enroll in some programs at FMTC. Please talk with an admissions specialist.

     5.  Apply for Financial Aid

 

Our Virtual Enrollment Event is live!  This event is being used to fill seats in classes starting January, 2021.

Once you have completed the steps above, you’ll be ready to complete and submit your application.  Seats in each program will be filled on a first come, first served basis.  It is important that you check your documents for accuracy and completeness. Incomplete or inaccurate documentation will delay processing and may mean losing your placement.

Enrollment for our January classes will be especially limited as we are still recovering from the schedule disruptions caused by COVID-19.  Please be aware of the number of seats available in your program of interest, and choose wisely as you select alternate programs.  You will be allowed to choose up to 3 programs to try to enroll.  If your first choice is filled, we will move on to your second choice and then third.  If all the programs are filled you will be placed on the waiting list for the highest ranked program.  We will waitlist up to five students in each program.  (You do not need to select more than one program, nor can you be enrolled in one program and waitlisted for another at the same time.)

*Total seats are shared among the three programs.
**Email FMTCAdmissions@Leeschools.net for special directions for LPN – selective admittance.
***Has additional requirements to complete once enrolled.  (Background check and drug screening)
