Admissions

To enroll, the applicant can either schedule a personal interview to fill out an application for admission, or begin by submitting a secure application online.  Depending on the requirements of the course, an applicant may be scheduled for an assessment test to determine basic skill or ability levels. If the applicant is accepted into the program, she/he must complete an enrollment agreement and pay an application fee and/or registration fee in order to reserve a seat in the class. The registration fee also serves as a tuition deposit and is subtracted from the total course charge.

Admissions FAQ’s

Do I need a High School Diploma or a GED?

In general, 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 secure employment upon completion of training.

Can prospective students visit the campus?

NTI encourages prospective students to visit the campus to attend small group information sessions, to schedule a time for an individual guided visit during which you may sit in on selected classes, or to visit the campus on their own. Appointments are necessary, and space can usually be reserved with short notice by calling (207) 883-5130 between 8:30 AM and 7:00 PM (Eastern Time). Individual visits to classes may be made Monday through Friday (holidays excluded).

Top

Are there any advantages to applying early?

Yes. Because students are notified on a continuous basis throughout each stated application deadline period, the class may become filled over time, and admissions decisions may become limited by space and student mix. Therefore, applicants are advised to apply for admission as early as possible.

Top

Are interviews necessary?

Yes – any applicants find that an interview offers a way to personalize the individual application beyond what is articulated in the application 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.
