To be admitted to Hamilton Tech, you must: (1) be 17 years of age on or before the first day of classes, and (2) possess a high school diploma (or recognized equivalency certificate).
A color perception test is also given to you to reveal any difficulty you may have in identifying colors and differentiating between them. If you have severe color perception problems, you may be limited to some degree in employment opportunities.
To be considered for enrollment at Hamilton Technical College, applicants must provide a high school/GED transcript. The high school or GED must have been earned from an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the US Department of Education. The college maintains a database of recognized high schools and GED institutions. If an institute attended is not on that list, the Dean of Students and Registrar will research the accreditation of the institution to determine if it meets the requirements stated earlier. If approved, the institution will be added to the approved list and an Advising Report will be completed stating that the transcript was approved. If the institution does not meet the accreditation standards, the applicant’s file will be considered incomplete and an Advising Report will be written to document the reason for incomplete status. All documentation will be filed in the applicant’s file.
When one applies for admission to Hamilton Technical College as a graduate of a High School outside the United States, he/she must request a verified/translated copy of your transcript. The prospective student is then referred to Educational Perspectives at www.edperspective.org for credentialing. The prospective student should have Educational Perspectives send a copy of the General Report sent to Hamilton Technical College, Dean of Students, 1011 East 53rd Street, Davenport, Iowa 52807. The Dean of Students will consult with the School Director, Admissions Director, and Registrar and write an Advising Report starting that the documentation was approved or disapproved for enrollment and what factors led to the decision. All documentation will be filed in the applicant’s file.
During the interview, you will meet with an admissions representative to discuss your goals and whether or not the school is a good match for you. If your goals and the school are a good match, then the admissions representative can help you apply. Throughout your education at Hamilton Tech, your admissions representative will continue to follow your progress and support you in reaching your goals.
