University description (as per official university website)

Throughout the academic year the University assists students by administering a wide variety of awards, bursaries and scholarships donated by firms, industrial enterprises, government agencies and concerned individuals. These are normally awarded on the basis of performance and need.

Our Purpose
The purpose of the Financial Aid Office is to assist students with all aspects of financial planning for their tertiary education. Students are advised to budget not only for tuition fees but also for other expenses such as accommodation, meals, books, special equipment and projects. The Six Point Plan outlined below, recommends the following sources for accessing funds to support tuition and other school related expenses:

Private Resources
Students Loan Bureau Scheme (Applications accepted January –April)
Employer Support
Scholarships and Bursaries
Earn & Study (Campus Employment)
Financial Aid Grants
Our Operations
The Financial Aid Office administers the Scholarships and Bursaries, Earn and Study and Financial Aid Grants Programmes. It also plays a proactive role in identifying other sources of funding for students who are financially challenged. The services offered are as follows:

Opening Hours
The Office is opened from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm Mondays to Fridays and our telephone numbers are: 512-2184, 512-2219, 512-2204 and 512-2192.

Our Location
The Financial Aid Office is located on the ground floor of the Student Services Building which is adjacent to the Medical Centre.

Location
The University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech), formerly the College of Arts, Science and Technology is located within the Greater Kingston Metropolitan Region in the parish of St. Andrew and occupies approximately 18.2 hectares. It lies to the east of the Hope Botanical Gardens within the Papine-Liguanea commercial centres. The campus is served by several bus routes and is within walking distance of the Mona Campus of the regional University of the West Indies and the University Hospital.

History
The University was established in 1958, originally under the name the Jamaica Institute of Technology. In 1959, the name was changed to the College of Arts, Science and Technology, and became incorporated under the College of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST) Scheme of 1959. This was validated by an Act of Parliament in 1964. In 1986, the CAST Scheme was revised in order to make the College a degree granting institution. The CAST Scheme also legally empowered the institution to conduct its affairs under two governing bodies, namely the Council and the Academic Board.

The institution was formally accorded University status on September 1, 1995, under the name, the University of Technology, Jamaica, and became fully chartered on June 29, 1999.

The history of the institution is intimately connected with the social and economic development of Jamaica. From just over 50 students and 4 programmes in 1958, the institution has grown to become a major national institution with a student population of over 11,000 and offers over 100 different programmes at certificate, diploma and degree levels.

Its academic offerings and development have been modeled on the English polytechnic system with emphasis on flexibility of approach, work-based learning and professional linkages. Flexibility in its academic offerings is reflected in the various modes of programme delivery which include full-time and part-time (day release, evening) and co-operative work based programmes. In addition, several programmes are franchised in a number of Community Colleges and most programmes are linked to national and international professional organisations.

Philosophy
The University is committed to the total education of the individual as a social being and seeks to develop the whole person in terms of personal well-being and social and intellectual competence. It promotes life-long learning, personal development and service to the community.
