#1. High School Diploma or GED
Applicants for admission must possess a high school diploma or GED. For some courses, however, students may be admitted if they can demonstrate an ability to benefit from the course, as measured by an assessment test. Furthermore, students should demonstrate the ability to find employment upon finishing.
Availability of a GED Program: The school accepts evidence of General Educational Development (GED) for satisfying the high school equivalency criteria which is part of the admissions standards.
For more information on obtaining a GED, please go to www.acenet.edu and select GED Testing Services, or contact your local Board of Education or our Admissions Office.
Applicants that have a foreign equivalency of a United States high school diploma and meet the School’s admissions requirements may be accepted to Northeast Technical Institute.
The School reserves the right to require a certified official English translation if the language used in the documents is not English. Documents that do not have the requisite seals and apostilles on the original foreign high school documentation may opt to obtain an official evaluation of their credentials from a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member organization.
The list of member organizations may be found at www.naces.org. Applicants must present this official evaluation prior to the program start date. Northeast Technical Institute reserves the right to require NACES evaluations for any transcripts in which we are unable to verify the authenticity or legitimacy of the documents provided.
#2. Admissions interview
Students find that an admissions interview offers a way to personalize the application beyond what is in the form. Because interview availability is limited, applicants should reserve an appointment as early as possible. Only one interview is conducted for each applicant. The interview is conducted by an NTI Admissions Representative.
Step 1: Visit your local campus
NTI encourages future students to visit the campus and get a first-person view of where they’ll be learning. During the visit, you can sit in on classes (subject to availability). Appointments are necessary.
Schedule an appointment by calling (800) 447-1151 between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM (Eastern Time).
Individual visits to classes may be made Monday through Friday (holidays excluded).
Step 2: Apply for your program
Apply yourself, or sit down with an Admissions Representative and they’ll guide you through the process. They’ll answer all your questions and make sure you understand what you’re signing up for.
Classes and programs fill up fast, so make sure to apply once you are ready to secure your seat.
Step 3: Financial Aid and program payment
Sit down with a Financial Aid representative who will lay out all of your payment options. You’ll learn about FAFSA, student loans, and the GI Bill® (for those who qualify).
FAFSA School Code: 041851
