Frequently Asked Questions for High School Graduates under age 22

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about high school graduates under 22 qualifying for tuition-free EVIT programs:

Q -- Will students currently enrolled in an adult CNA (nursing assistant) program that started April 29 and continues through June 27 qualify.

A -- No. The Arizona Department of Education has only just started allowing EVIT to offer these courses at no cost for students under 22 for the coming school year, 2014-15, which starts in August.

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.
