Many home-schooled students are admitted to NHTI each year and find success both academically and socially at the college.

We understand that your academic background differs from students who attended traditional public, private, or charter schools. Our small class size and active campus life allows you to engage closely with faculty, staff, and fellow students and become part of our community.

1. Apply for Admission

Great news: There is no application fee! If you fill out the online application, click “First time user account creation” and follow the instructions. Otherwise, you can download our application, fill it out, and return it to NHTIadmissions@ccsnh.edu.

While the nature of home schooling is unique to each student, NHTI requires appropriate documentation to determine admission. You’ll meet the same General and Specific Admission Requirements as other students and need to provide documentation of the academic work you have accomplished in accordance with program requirements. 

Documentation may include the following:

  1. A letter from your local school district stating you have completed a home school program at the high school level
  2. A list of courses taken and grades earned and/or portfolio of work accomplished
  3. High school equivalency or other testing, if applicable
  4. An official transcript if your home school curriculum is provided by a U.S. regionally accredited school
  5. Self-Certification of High School or Equivalent (PDF)

Contact Admissions with any questions at 603-230-4011 or NHTIadmissions@ccsnh.edu.

2. Apply for Financial Aid

NHTI participates in all forms of federal financial aid; if you are planning on applying for financial aid, you should fill out your FAFSA at the same time you are applying for admission. Take a few moments to review these FAQ:

3. Register for Classes

No one expects you to do this by yourself! Your academic advisor will help you registered for the courses you want and show you around the Student Information System, which gives you full access to online course information like test dates, assignments, and grades.

You may need to take a placement test for a particular course, but these can be waived based on your high school GPA, transfer credits, or standardized test scores such as SAT and ACT. Have you earned AP Exam credits? You may be able to apply them!
