Student Resources

Being a student of LA ORT has many benefits, not the least of which is your degree or certification at graduation. There are also a number of resources we offer our students that go above-and-beyond what you might expect. To ensure their success, we offer many extra services to current and graduate students.

Current Students

  • Childcare Referral
    • Being a parent while trying to earn a degree can be exhausting. If you’re looking for someone to take care of your little ones while you’re at class, just reach out to our Student Services team. Knowing you can trust the person taking care of your child is a huge deal, so we only recommend authorized childcare facilities. We’ll help you find the perfect childcare provider for your family.
  • Transportation Assistance
    • Let’s face it: with all the recent price hikes, public transportation has gotten pricey. The good news is you could be eligible for reimbursement of the full cost of your monthly pass! We also offer free shuttles for our students to and from certain areas.
  • Financial Aid
    • With financing plans and federal, state, and local sources of financial aid, paying for tuition is just not a big deal. Our financial advisors will help you craft the plan that’s right for you, so you never have to stress about making payments.
  • Assistance for International Students
    • Moving to a foreign country can be intimidating. There are forms to fill out, visas to acquire, and a whole new culture to learn. Fortunately, supporting international students is one of the things LA ORT does best. We know what you’re going through, and we’re here to help.


  • Graduate Refresher Training
    • So you’ve landed your new job as a Medical Office Manager, but now the process of medical insurance and coding is a little fuzzy? No problem. Just pick the module you want to retake any time within two years of your graduation. Our low-cost refresher training courses make sure you are always on the top of your game.
