Due to the impact from Hurricane Laura, the Lake Charles campus is currently assessing the damage to the physical structure in an effort to prepare for the students and staff to return to school. We will be announcing the return date as soon as possible. In addition, we understand that this natural disaster may have caused many of you to evacuate the Lake Charles area. You may or may not have plans to return to the Lake Charles community, which may alter your original educational path with Unitech.

However, Unitech Training Academy will continue to provide you with quality education, and it is our priority to help you meet your current educational needs. Due to the extreme circumstances, we have listed four possible options for you to choose from moving forward:

Option A: Continue your online education with Unitech

• Online classes will resume in approximately two weeks (exact date to be provided once finalized). The Unitech Corporate Office will be contacting you to confirm this date and update you on any Edmodo instructions, as soon as possible.

 Option B: Leave of Absence

• Hurricane Laura has caused you to temporarily be unable to resume online instruction due to computer and/or Wi-Fi access, but you have the intention to return to the Lake Charles campus. This will pause your educational track for a period of time to be decided on between you and a Unitech representative.

Option C: Unitech Campus Transfer

• Relocation to another Unitech Training Academy campus. Student must be in close enough proximity to travel to the campus to perform scheduled lab skills, as needed.

• Financial Aid will be transferred to the campus you attend.

Option D: Withdraw as a Unitech Student

• If you are moving to an area without a Unitech Training Academy location, and you are not planning to return to the Louisiana area.

• Government Loan forgiveness is unavailable because the Lake Charles Unitech campus will not be closing permanently.

• Michelle Phelps, Corporate Associate Director of Financial Aid, will be in touch with you if you choose this option.


The Unitech Corporate Office will be contacting you within the next few days. We will provide answers to your questions and guide you through this transition. Until then, please feel free to contact Alisha or Kristi with your questions and concerns. We are here to support you, and look forward to seeing you at the Lake Charles campus very soon!
