General Information About Wyotech-Fremont
Wyotech-Fremont Mission Statement: WyoTech is uncompromisingly dedicated to superior-quality, college-level, career-oriented education in the automotive, motorcycle, HVAC, and plumbing industries. The WyoTech campus located in Oakland, California, is dedicated to career fields in the aviation industry. WyoTech's programs meet industry specifications and standards. Through the use of industry-based advisory committees, employed graduate contacts, and faculty/industry interactions, WyoTech continually upgrades and modifies programs to enhance each graduate's employability. WyoTech's primary objectives are to impart specific knowledge and skills, to graduate each and every student who begins training, and to place them in their chosen fields. In order to achieve these objectives, the curriculum, the faculty and staff, and the facilities and learning environment become equally important. WyoTech's curricula allow students to concentrate exclusively on learning technical skills in certificate and diploma programs or to expand their education with occupational degree programs. The faculty and staff respect the professional decision students have made to enter career training. We believe professionalism is as important an aspect of training as technical and business skills. For that reason, WyoTech has established rules and regulations concerning attendance, behavior and academic performance in classrooms, labs and shops. These rules are enforced, both on campus and in housing, and each student's grades are adjusted weekly to reflect professionalism points. Professionalism develops a positive attitude, personal motivation, and career pride. These elements, combined with technical expertise, produce a WyoTech graduate--a skilled professional technician. To apply for federal financial aid, including the Stafford Loan, Pell Grant, Perkins Loan, and work-study, you will need to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). State aid programs and Wyotech-Fremont financial aid offices may also require the FAFSA. The chart below can give you a rough estimate of your total college cost. To begin the financial aid process, you'll want to fill out the FAFSA Form, search and apply for free scholarships and then cover any remaining costs with alternative student loans. Now get going! Next semester is right around the corner.
