Student Application

Admissions Application

Erskine Green Training Institute’s (EGTI) programming is designed for individuals whose academic, social, communication and adaptive skills are affected due to a disability. Most applicants would have received special education services in the K-12 setting and exited their secondary school with a diploma, GED or certificate of completion.

EGTI is a certificate program (not an accredited college degree program). Students will exit their chosen training program with a certificate and potentially an industry recognized certificate depending on their program.

To ensure that EGTI is the best option for each applicant we require a completed application packet.  Applicants should possess a majority of the following bullets. Also, applicants for EGTI Muncie will need to meet many of the skills listed within the Independent Living Skills document. Additional requirements for specific training programs may also be required. Please refer to your training program of interest on EGTI’s website to see additional requirements.

Participant Selection Process

Not all applicants who complete the application and meet the criteria listed on page two and within EGTI Prerequisites: Independent Living Skills within the Housing section of the website will be accepted into EGTI.

An Admissions Screening Committee will review all applications and invite selected applicants to an interview and informal assessment. Although an applicant may be asked to schedule an interview and informal assessment, this does not guarantee acceptance into EGTI. Once interviews are complete, selected applicants will receive a letter in the mail notifying them of their acceptance. In their acceptance letter, they will receive information about a mandatory new student orientation for the student and his/her guardian(s) to attend as well as additional forms to be completed and returned prior to the start of the training session.

Applicants not accepted to EGTI will receive a letter of regret in the mail notifying them of the decision. Due to the amount of applicants, the Admissions Screening Committee cannot provide individual responses explaining the decision to not accept an applicant.
