Workforce Development:

If you have been laid off this page will help you get started in a retraining program. Students in this program are referred by their local One-Stop Center once they are approved for training. The approval process by your local One-Stop Center will enable you to maximize the educational benefits you are entitled to from the state of NJ and the Federal government. Consumers must attend workshops at the One-Stop Center in order to qualify for funding.

Once you have been approved by the One-Stop Center in your county, contact a Workforce Development Specialist at the ATC Center at Cumberland County College 856.691.8600 x1320.

Once funded in an approved training program, students need to meet with their appointed one-stop advisor and pick up all the required paperwork from their One-Stop Center prior to registering.

  • One Stop Referral
  • CCC Application
  • Financial Aid Application
  • Accuplacer

Students, already enrolled, must have timesheets up to date and signed by the student and instructors.  Timesheets are still required for students receiving full financial aid.  Any changes in program or credits must be approved by the One-Stop workforce counselor.

Unemployed Person Program (UPP) Process

To qualify for tuition waivers or UPP (Unemployed Person Program), students must be unemployed and have filed for financial aid. UPP forms are picked up from the One-Stop Center. In order to use a tuition waiver or UPP a student must meet with an ATC advisor, during late registration. Late registration typically occurs three business days before the semester begins. There is a $20 processing fee to use a tuition waiver. Student is also responsible for any additional fees may apply to lab, remedial, online, hybrid, or telecourse classes.  Students are also responsible for purchasing books.
