The SkillsUSA Campus Affiliation Plan allows eligible students who are enrolled in technical, skilled and service occupations, including health occupations, to participate in SkillsUSA as an integral part of their education. Under this program, community colleges, technical colleges and adult programs can affiliate as one or combine campus locations together onto one contract. All students enrolled in a technical program that SkillsUSA services must enroll and register under the Affiliation Plan.
This allows the maximum number of students to participate in all SkillsUSA activities. By having the campus join as a whole, it may be possible for schools to use alternate funding sources for the program, such as student activity fees or Perkins funding (as determined and allowed by state department of education and local school policy). The program philosophy is based on running a SkillsUSA program that benefits all students through the development of leadership and employability skills.
Institutions with college students are only eligible to use this plan. If your campus or district has a combination of college and high school students use the Total Participation Plan for high schools.
The Campus Affiliation Plan is available to institutions only by approval from their state association director. The following states are participating in the plan:
Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia.
