Individuals may apply for full-time or part-time admission. Most of the training programs at Tom P. Haney Technical Center have minimum admission or state licensure requirements. Applicants should have the basic skills necessary for potential success in the training program and the career field they have chosen. Classes are available to assist students in improving basic skills.



Step 1: ACADEMIC ASSESSMENT The academic assessment is the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) that measures applicants' grade levels in mathematics, reading, and language. Pre-register for the TABE, pay the applicable fee, and arrive at least 15-minutes prior to testing. Be sure to bring your I.D. with you to Student Services (must be 16 years old or older). If you are unsure of the program of training you wish to enter, schedule some time with our Career Specialist and view our Program Offerings. Each program has its own basic skills requirement. Information for preparing for the TABE is available iin Student Services located in Building 1 or you may print the information below (opens in new window):

You may be exempt from the TABE testing if you:

  •  possess a college degree at the associate in applied science level or higher
  • demonstrate readiness for public postsecondary education pursuant to F.S. 1008.30
  •  earned a valid Florida standard high school diploma (entered 9th grade in 2003-04 school year or any year thereafter)
  • passed a state or national industry certification or licensure examination indentified in State Board of Education rules and aligned to the career education program which you are enrolled
  • are an active duty member of any branch of the United States Armed Services

Proof of exemption status is required. Please see a counselor for further details.


Step 2: NOTIFICATION OF ACADEMIC ASSESSMENT RESULTS Each applicant will need to meet with a Haney Guidance Counselor in Student Services to review the Academic Assessment the following day to determine if remediation is necessary. Complete an admission application (requires free Adobe Acrobat. This is a fill-able, printable form that opens in a new window.) and bring the application with you when registering

Step  3: PREPARE FOR PAYMENT Finalize enrollment by determining your method of payment. All fees (registration, tuition, lab, student activity, etc.) must be paid at the time of registration. Out-of-state fees will be charged to students who have not established one year of Florida residency.  Registration will not be officially complete until all fees are paid in full. 

Step  4: APPLICATION AND DOCUMENTATION Complete the admission application packet(available in Student Services) after reviewing the academic assessment. The packet should include: a copy of academic assessment scores (if not exempt), a completed Haney application, immunizations (if under 21), two proofs of Florida residency, picture I.D., Social Security Card, and a copy of high school/GED/Associate degree diploma/transcript.
