Residence Life Policies

NHTI’s residence life program provides a safe, comfortable environment where students may live, grow, and study in a community of peers. Each student is responsible for what takes place in their room and consequently may live the way they choose as long as they abide by state and federal laws, as well as NHTI’s policy and philosophy, and do not interfere with the rights of others. As a member of the residence hall community, each student has a responsibility to live with respect for the other members of the community. The residence hall staff is responsible for insuring that the rights of NHTI students and property are not abused.

By signing the residence hall contract, the resident agrees to abide by whatever rules have been or may be established by NHTI. Rules now in effect are available on the website and any subsequent changes will be posted. Violation of any residence hall rule or NHTI policy may result in termination of the residence hall contract and visitation privileges to the residence halls.

Student Definitions

Full time: A student who is registered for at least 12 credits in any given semester. Only the credits as part of a
student’s program of study will be considered when determining financial aid eligibility.

Part time: A student who is registered for fewer than 12 credits.

Matriculated: A student who applies to and is officially accepted by the college in a program. The status remains until the student withdraws officially from the program or college or is dismissed for academic or disciplinary
reasons or upon graduation. Matriculation defines a student’s program of study and ensures that courses taken will meet program requirements.

Non-Matriculated: A student who is enrolled in a course or courses but who has not officially been accepted into a college program. A student who has taken individual courses and decided to work for a degree should commit to a specific program and formally matriculate after proper counseling prior to the satisfactory completion of 9 semester hours in appropriate courses. In order to ensure that credits earned meet program of study requirements, a student should matriculate as early as possible.

Active: A matriculated student who has not officially withdrawn from a program or the college, or has not registered for classes within a given semester but returns to the college within 3 semesters. They are eligible to register for classes under the original program of study; all others must reapply to the program/college and follow the new program of study.
