Frequently Asked Questions

How can the Network Infrastructure training be free? Are there hidden fees?

Most people who learn about us think: “Too good to be true.” We know it seems that way, but it’s true. Our services are provided at no cost to you, using funds we raise from foundations, corporations, government and generous individuals.

The costs you can prepare for include transportation or childcare—expenses that take care of you so you can focus on your studies.

What are the safety measures for in-person learning during the COVID-19 pandemic?

In 2020, Per Scholas safely transitioned all of our learners to a remote instruction and learning environment. You can read about our transition to virtual instruction here.

In 2021, as local situations allowed, we began to transition select courses back on-site for in-person learning, following safety protocols that include but are not limited to:

  • All learners and staff complete confidential wellness screenings prior to arrival daily.
  • Temperature screening at entry. Mandatory mask policies.
  • Reduced class sizes to accommodate for social distancing.
  • Disposal PPE and sanitation items available to all campuses.
  • Regular professional cleaning of campuses.
  • Air purification systems to assist with airflow.

In 2022, we adopted a new vaccination policy that requires all staff and in-person learners to be fully vaccinated, pursuant to local, state and federal guidelines. Per Scholas will continue to offer fully remote courses for individuals who prefer this learning environment or who are unvaccinated.

What if I don’t have a laptop? What are the computer requirements?

Computer requirements are determined by each specific curriculum track. During the onboarding process, we will review each learner’s needs on a case-by-case basis. If you have any concerns about your situation, please elevate to the admissions team during the admissions process.

I receive unemployment insurance benefits or other benefits that require me to spend time working or looking for work. Can I still enroll?

Yes. Generally, Per Scholas courses are approved for people receiving unemployment insurance, as well as other benefits that would ordinarily require them to spend time working or looking for work. Your benefits should not be affected. If you have questions or concerns about your situation, please contact us.

I meet other requirements, but I am not a U.S. citizen and haven’t received my work authorization yet. Can I still apply?

Unfortunately, we cannot process your application until you have received clearance to work in the U.S. However, if you are experiencing problems, we may be able to refer you to other organizations that may be able to help.

I have a disability. Can you accommodate me?

We comply fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other relevant laws and regulations. Please contact our admissions team to discuss your specific situation and needs.
