Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA)

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides that any person has the right to request access to federal agency records or information. Like all federal agencies, Job Corps and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) are required under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to disclose records requested in writing by any person. However, agencies may withhold information pursuant to nine exemptions and three exclusions contained in the statute. The FOIA applies only to federal agencies and does not create a right of access to records held by Congress, the courts, or by state or local government agencies.

To complete a FOIA form to get a copy of your Job Corps student record, you will need to provide, at minimum, the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Your Job Corps Student ID number assigned to you while you were enrolled at a center
  • Your current mailing address
  • Your current email address
  • A telephone number you can be reached at any time
  • The name of the Job Corps center you enrolled in and the years when you were on that center
  • Please specify what record item you are asking for (Ex: GED earned in March 2022, or Career Technical Training Completion Certificate in Culinary Arts in July 2005)

If you are here to verify employment for someone else, Job Corps is not able to provide that service.
