There are several steps to the enrollment process at El Centro de Estudiantes.
Step 1: Submit a completed application to the school. 

Step 2: Provide any necessary documentation or paperwork as detailed by someone from our front office staff.

Step 3: Attend el Centro orientation. If a student is late, leaves early, or misses any of the orientation days, they will be asked to come to the next orientation.

All students who are enrolled at el Centro de Estudiantes and live 1.5 miles away from the school will receive a SEPTA Transpass. All students who do not qualify for a SEPTA Transpass will receive a Key Card to travel to and from their internship sites on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
