Description

Laurel Technical Institute (LTI) offers personalized, hands-on learning in select areas of professional study.

Located in Sharon, Pennsylvania with a campus in Longmeadow, LTI’s associate degrees are awarded in Cosmetology, Health Care, Business Administration, Early Childhood Education, Information Technology and Administrative Office Technology.

Its hands-on approach is another distinguishing feature of the LTI experience. Students in the Cosmetology program, for example, work at the school salon, offering hair, nail and make-up services to the public.

The health care program also gives students the chance to apply skills in real-world situations, requiring that they complete an internship at a hospital or medical facility.

Student services offers students the opportunity to undertake internships in their field through work at local companies. They also provide career counseling and job-placement assistance for students as well as graduates.

Student life offerings include a student government association and local community service activities.

Admission to LTI requires proof of a high school diploma or GED, completion of an entrance exam and a school interview.

Financial aid is available to eligible students as is tuition assistance for veterans.
