A matriculated student is one who has been formally accepted to and is actively enrolled in a program. Students who are enrolled in courses but have not been formally accepted into an academic program are referred to as non-matriculated students. To be formally accepted to a program, students must provide all the documentation required for admission to that program (degree, professional certificate, or certificate) and be officially notified by the Admissions Office of acceptance. Only matriculated students are eligible to graduate from a program and to receive an official completion credential from the college. Students wishing to apply for financial aid must be matriculated. Matriculation may be required for enrollment in discipline-specific courses
Student enrollment at NHTI is defined according to the number of credits for which a student is enrolled in a particular semester as follows: Full-time is 12 or more credits per semester; part-time = fewer than 12 credits per semester. For financial aid purposes, NHTI defines student enrollment more specifically: Full time is 12 or more credits per semester; ¾ time is 9-11 credits per semester; and part time is 6-8 credits per semester.
