If you have suffered a job loss, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College can help you obtain the education and skills you need to successfully embark on a new career.
The On-Ramp Program provides funds to cover tuition, fees, books and supplies for the unemployed and underemployed. In some cases, students may also be eligible for additional financial aid from other grant programs.
The program’s primary goal is to increase the number of adults with postsecondary education credentials, such as a college degree or an industry-recognized certification or licensure, and get them back to work.
The On-Ramp Program expands access to timely career programs with both tuition coverage and career advising for dislocated workers, including follow-up support while they pursue new training and education. The program, which is funded by the U. S. Department of Labor Workforce Investment Act Title I, defines dislocated workers primarily as those who have lost their jobs due to layoffs or plant closings. The program is also open to certain small business owners whose businesses have failed or individuals who have been out of the workforce for family care reasons.
