HS seniors, you can weld your way to winning free tuition. Found out more.
The annual High School Senior Welding Competition is a great way to win a welding tuition scholarship at the Tulsa Welding School.

This is a great school with a couple great instructors, and welding is a great field to get into to make good money. *Attention Veterans* Due to how the school certifies attendance, all the Veterans attending Tulsa Welding School are getting shorted roughly $200 each month as well as not receiving payments on the first of each month in full. Since I'm using my Post 9/11 G.I. Bill benefits earned for the 6 years of service I completed in the Army from 1998-2004 to pay the tuition to Tulsa, and also receive a Basic Allowance for Housing (Which is rated by the cost of living determined by the government to be the minimum amount needed to live in any one particular region of the world) that should total $1,375 each month but instead I receive sporadic payments of greatly varying amounts each month

Thank you for sharing this information with us as we do realize the frustration of our veterans with regards to how we are mandated to certify their attendance. We recently had a compliance visit from the Department of Veteran’s Affairs and during the visit the opportunity was given to our current VA students to have one on one meetings with their representative in which this issue was also discussed. The end result was that the school is in compliance with the way we are required to certify our student enrollments and that this process is being done accurately. In an effort to provide this information to future students, we have recently implemented a Veteran’s Orientation that is held after the regular new student orientation so that we can explain how their monthly payments are calculated by the VA. We feel that providing this information as early as possible to our incoming students allows them to better budget their expenses and promotes a sense of transparency to our students.

This place is a great learning environment to help individuals become competitive in their job search. The amount of knowledge here is unlimited. All you as a student have to do is listen, ask questions, dont just do the bare minimum. It's like anything else in life, you get out what you put in. Burn and learn.

Thanks for the review, Brian.

I'm a student at the jacksonville campus. The only I can say about the instructors is that They are outstanding. I started in September at the age of 54 & from whole other field of Work. From day one every instructor I have asked for help has went out there way to help Me. Even the ones who are not my immediate Instructor. And when my instructor ask me to do a project over again he shows me where I went wrong on my weld. He shows me again & watches me until I have it. As far a getting a job. Company's are already reaching out to me for job opportunities. I still have 3 weeks till graduation. I'm sorry for those who are having a hard time finding a job. Maybe you might need to look at your interview techniques and brush up on interviewing. Your skills are the only thing company's are looking for. Good luck to all. Andre greaves

As a prior United States Marine I cannot express what a clusterf*** their Financial Aide office is. I was using my Post 9/11 GI Bill to pay the schools tuition. To generate an extra income I applied for the Pell Grant and got qualified for $5800. As I was an out of state student who had to leave behind three kids, and a pregnant wife i needed all the extra money i could get to still try to provide some sort of support for them. Lets back track though. Before deciding to come to Tulsa Welding School Jacksonville i was an Independent Contractor OTR Truck Driver. So i received 1099s instead of W2s. Let me say this before i move on my wife used the same Tax documents for her Financial Aide with ASU Online, and had no problem as she got approved. I sent in all my 1099s and tax return documents to a Mrs. Mariana Rubio on November 7th. It would have had my adjusted gross income on it to show i made less than 16k for 2015. As if anybody is familiar with 1099s they don't show business deductions i.e. diesel, truck payments, taxes, etc. So of course they would add up to more than what the IRS documents showed i made. I explained to her this and was told ok everything should be fine. Well come November 14th i start school. Was told by the FA reps in office nothing else was needed after they checked Mrs. Rubios notes she had on my file. Well now lets fast forward to December. I emailed her almost regularly every week and get no response for weeks. Once i do get a response i get excuse after excuse well its the holidays it could delay the mailing of the checks, we cant make the government pay out any faster. Well i understood that, but here is the icing on the cake. December 28th i get an email from Mrs. Rubio who lets me know hey the DOE has not mailed your check at all we still need more paperwork for your verification. Well funny thing is you have now had my paperwork for almost two months and in between that time no one can reach out to communicate this with me. Not an email, not a phone call, not even a courier pigeon. Still what is even more frustrating my green card non citizen wife used the same documents for an actual college (Arizona State University) and got approved when she went for her schooling. I bring this up and i get 'oh your wife may have been selected for a different verification process than you' like these things are a Apple IOS update. I guess we got verification version 1.0-10.0 which ok i understand its the govt. not surprising if we did. Now lets get to the shady part speaking with another Marine Veteran whose name I'm going to withhold he is having the same problem. Has received none of his Pell grant payments, and everytime he calls its a different excuse. Then we had my roommate who again I'm going to withhold his name who is in phase 5 and still had not received any of his pell grant money. He called and what a surprise was told 'oh their is a problem with your paperwork, we will have to resubmit' Phase 5 would mean he would have been there for over 3 months. So here is were perception is reality they either do not know what their doing and need some training or the money is being kept. I really hope the last part is not true i don't want to believe that is the case, but their is plenty of schools on record doing shady business practices. Update 1/6/2017 Complaint filed with the BBB, and considering taking legal action. WARNING ANY VETERAN INTERESTED IN ATTENDING TULSA WELDING SCHOOL, JACKSONVILLE CAMPUS PLEASE RECONSIDER. I Don't want any of my brothers or sisters to have to gave the problems I had to endure. They will lure you in making you think they really care when in all reality they just want your money, and when you question them about yours they put little to no effort in helping you.

Mr. Nelms, we spoke with you on Monday regarding your dissatisfaction but you requested to withdraw from the program before a resolution could be reached. We always try to work with our students, and we are sorry we were unable to come up with a solution that works for you. Good luck in your future endeavors.

Where do I begin on this train wreck firstly everything I was told before they got my money was sugar coated "you will get all your tools needed to complete the school you will have one on one help finding jobs for life you can train after you graduate" the tools all broke within a month of the school I needed to buy several other items to complete my projects the "career service" comes in the form of periodic emails and you are only allowed to train 2 days out of each month after graduating I would NOT recommend this school to anyone if they could ever stop putting money before their students then this might be a good school one day I graduated in March its now almost September and I'm still out of work....

Way too much mis-Communication! Some teacher are good, some don't care about you or the 18,000 you spent to get an education. I should've done my research better and went to a real school. Good luck......
