Some trade schools are a part of a community college. These programs may have their own admissions or financial aid process. For example, the Dawson Institute is part of Kennedy-King College, located in Chicago, IL., but Dawson has its own campus, its own financial aid process and certain trade programs require pre-tests before admission.
If you’re looking to find a job program where you can use federal and state financial aid, your local community college is a good place to start. These programs will likely accept the FAFSA for financial aid because they are accredited colleges.
