COVID-19 FAQ for Prospective and Accepted Students

Application Materials

Many programs at NHTI have high school-level prerequisites, are competitive, or have other admissions requirements. For admission to these programs, you’ll need official transcripts forwarded to NHTI by any secondary and post-secondary institutions you’ve attended. Refer to the program’s page to determine these requirements.

Application materials should be sent to:

NHTI – Concord’s Community College
ATTN: Admissions Office
31 College Drive
Concord, NH 03301-7412

You can also request that your school email your official transcripts to NHTIadmissions@ccsnh.edu.

We highly recommend having your official high school transcript, diploma, or equivalent (GED or HiSET) documentation submitted; they may be used for advising or to waive placement testing.

If you applied and were accepted to NHTI prior to April 11, 2020, and did not have an official high school transcript submitted, you may be requested to complete a High School Self-Certification form to certify that you have received (or will receive) a high school diploma, GED, or HiSET by the start of the semester for which you’ve applied.

Documentation of your completion of high school (or an equivalent) may be required to receive federal financial aid.

Specific Admission Requirements

Many associate degree and certificate programs have additional requirements listed on their academic program pages. You’re responsible for knowing the requirements, deadlines, and necessary documentation for admissions. These may include:

  • Prerequisite courses with grades of a “C” or better
  • Entrance examinations
  • A personal interview
  • References

If you do not meet the requirements for your program, you may still be offered admission to either the Liberal Arts Associate in Arts program or the General Studies Associate in Science program. Starting in these programs would allow you to enroll at NHTI and work with an academic advisor complete the prerequisite and college courses needed to pursue your goal.

Additional Requirements and Recommendations 

SAT/ACT/Placement Testing

Though not required for admission, we recommend you submit scores for any standardized national college admission tests, such as the SAT or ACT, that you’ve taken within the last 5 years. These scores may be used to waive your ACCUPLACER placement testing requirement.

Mathematics  Requirement 

All of our degree programs require the successful completion of at least one semester of college-level mathematics. We recommend that you successfully complete high school Algebra I with a grade of “C” or better prior to NHTI admission. Many STEM programs require additional math as an admission requirement. If your placement testing does not demonstrate readiness for college-level mathematics, it may take more than two years to complete your degree.
