Please use the following checklist as a guide of what must be submitted to Southeast Community College to be accepted as a student in the Deere Construction and Forestry Equipment Tech program.
Although not a requirement for being accepted into the program, it is highly recommended that the student make arrangements to fulfill the financial obligations associated with being a student as soon as possible! Applying for financial aid will require a minimum of four (4) to six (6) weeks from date of initial application to the time the college sends the "Award Letter" to the student stating the financial aid the student is eligible for.
During the course of the Deere Construction and Forestry Equipment Tech Program, the student is required to complete two (2) sessions of Cooperative Education at his/her sponsoring dealership. A minimum of 480 hours per CO-OP Ed session is required, plus the student must remain employed from the starting date to the ending date of each of the two (2) CO-OP Ed sessions as determined by Southeast Community College. (Thereafter, this agreement is terminated.)
