Q -- Do you have to be a citizen of the U.S. to attend EVIT tuition-free if you're an adult under 22?
A -- High school graduates under 22 will not be
treated any differently than other EVIT students. So, no, you do not
have to be a U.S. citizen to qualify.
Q -- Do you have to pay tuition if you start a program at age 22 and finish before turning 23?
A -- EVIT does not receive state funding for any student over age 21. So, a 22-year-old would have to pay as an adult.
Q -- Can a student qualify for free tuition if they are under 22 and currently taking classes to get a GED?
A -- If a student doesn't have a GED or high school
diploma, then they have to either 1) be attending one of our 10 sending
school districts (Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe Union, Chandler, Gilbert,
Higley, Fountain Hills, Apache Junction, Queen Creek and J.O. Combs), or
2) live within those 10 districts AND be attending any other high
school, such as a charter school, or a certified home school. If they
meet one of these qualifications, they can attend EVIT tuition-free. If
not, they cannot attend EVIT at all.
Q -- Will EVIT be offering night classes for adults under 22 without charging them tuition?
A -- No. Night classes, which are adult-only programs (including LPN and Surgical Tech), cannot be taken tuition-free.
