Where can I apply? Applications can be obtained from our website. Please submit all completed applications and required documents to our Haiti staff.
Is there an Application fee? No.
Will the curriculum be taught in French and Creole? No, the goal is to teach the entire IT curriculum in English. As a result, an EFL course study is necessary to prepare students for continuing studies.
Do I need a baccalaureate 2nd part degree? Yes.
Is tCHF an Academic Institution? No, tCHF is a non-profit organization dedicated to Education but not a school in itself. tCHF is doing this program in Haiti free of charge to the students who participated. tCHF raises the funds through individual and corporate donors that share our vision to help in Haiti through education.
Who would not be a good fit for this Technology Program? If you are not interested in being a Technologist as either a programmer or Network Administrator then this is not for you. As we move forward, we will introduce more curriculum and disciplines. In addition, we are looking to serve the community and provide dedicated students with access to the best-accredited programs available. Along with our US partner Universities, our goal is to look for the next generation of Haitian leaders. As a result, we are looking for team players with the right core values to help grow and better themselves and ultimately their communities and country.
Do you accept students straight out of High School level? Yes, we are and will accept students directly from High School level studies in Haiti. Our goal is to recruit for our program students who we feel have very strong potential. Academically they are very bright, they are willing to make a full-time commitment and work hard, and they have exceptional interpersonal skills that would enable them to make an equal contribution with their classmates.
What edge does a Technology graduate have over other graduates? The tCHF Program will be backed by accredited U.S. Universities. The objective of the program is to produce professionals who are able to look outside of their own circumstances and be very creative about solving business problems. They know how to be team players and leaders. They are known to be incredibly bright but also very authentic in their interactions with people. We will train them to be analytically prepared and globally aware, so the result is that we produce leaders of consequence.
Do I need a transcript?
Self-reported transcripts are required as part of the online application. If you are invited for an interview, you will be required to present sealed, official transcripts at the interview.
What is the most suitable financing method?
The Program is fee of charge to all students. tCHF recognizes the need ot parents and students alike and is committed to help develop a plan to assist through fundraising activities in the U.S. Our ask is that students understand the sacrifices that are being made on their behalf and dedicate themselves to studying and excelling in their academic work. Once a student starts the program, there are also many opportunities to give back. some examples include working as a teaching assistant, helping tCHF with various community development programs or initiatives throughout the year.
