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.

#2. Admissions Interview

Get all of your questions answered during an Admissions Interview

Admissions interviews offer a way to personalize the application beyond what is in the form.

Because interview availability is limited, applicants should make an appointment as early as possible.

Only one interview is conducted for each applicant.

Admissions Process

Step 1: Visit Your Local Campus

Visit your local NTI campus and get a first-person view of where you’ll be learning. During the visit, you can sit in on classes (subject to availability). Appointments are necessary.

You can also schedule an appointment by calling (800) 447-1151 between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM. Class visits may be made Monday through Friday (holidays excluded).

Step 2: Admissions Interview

An Admissions Representative will guide you through the enrollment 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 schedule your interview once you are ready to secure your seat.

Step 3: Financial Aid and program payment

During your admissions interview, a Financial Aid representative will lay out all of your payment options. You’ll learn about FAFSA, student loans, and the GI Bill® (for those who qualify). 

The first step to getting financial aid is to complete your FAFSA. Once that’s done, we can better determine the financial aid package that is best for you.

FAFSA School Code: 041851
