Some programs at NHTI have high school-level pre-requisites, are competitive in nature, or have other special admissions requirements.  For admission to these programs, have official transcripts forwarded to NHTI by secondary and postsecondary institutions previously attended.  Please refer to the program’s webpage to determine special admissions requirements.

It is your responsibility to request official transcripts. Application materials can be mailed to: NHTI, Concord’s Community College,  ATTN: Admissions Office, 31 College Drive, Concord, New Hampshire 03301-7412.

If your college sends official transcripts electronically, they can be sent to

Even for programs with no special admissions requirements, NHTI highly recommends submitting an official high school transcript, diploma, or equivalent (GED or HiSET), as these documents may be used to waive placement testing.

If you applied and were accepted to NHTI prior to April 11, 2020 and did not submit an official high school transcript as part of your application, you can use this High School Self Certification form (PDF) form  to certify that you have received (or will receive) a high school diploma, GED, or HiSET by the start of the semester you applied for.  Documentation of completion of high school (or equivalent) is required to receive federal financial aid.

Complete all additional requirements as indicated in the “Specific Admission Requirements” for the desired program.  Please refer to the program’s webpage to determine special admissions requirements.  

Though not required for admission to any program, it is recommended that the scores (no more than 5 years old) of one of the standardized national college admission tests (SAT or ACT) be forwarded to the Admissions Office. Test scores provide an additional piece of information that expands our knowledge of a student’s academic background and may be used to waive ACCUPLACER placement testing.

College Math Requirements – All degree programs at NHTI require successful completion of at least one semester of college level mathematics. Therefore, the college strongly recommends that all applicants successfully complete high school Algebra I with a grade of “C” or higher prior to admission; many majors, including the Mathematics and Engineering Technology programs require additional math as Specific Admission Requirements. Those students whose placement testing does not demonstrate readiness for college level mathematics may require more than two years to complete their degree.
