In addition to the General Admission Requirements and Specific Admission Requirements for the desired program, international students must submit the following:
Inquiries regarding the test should be addressed to: TOEFL, Educational Testing Service, Box 899, Princeton, NJ 08540, USA or http://www.ets.org. Official TOEFL scores must be sent directly from the testing site to the Admissions office. Students earning a TOEFL score lower** than those listed above may be evaluated for language study.
Health care in the United States is expensive; all International Students are required to submit proof of health insurance to the Health Services Department prior to registration. A listing of insurance companies is available here: www.nhti.edu/sites/default/files/content/documents/interins.pdf
Dollar amounts promised by the sponsor and available in the sponsor's bank account should be sufficient to cover a minimum of one year of expenses (out-of-state tuition, fees, room, board, books and miscellaneous expenses). Before a Certificate of Eligibility for an F-1 visa (I-20) can be issued, applicants must have submitted all documents required to be considered for admission into a program, be accepted into a program and have submitted the required TOEFL score and financial documents listed above. Students may view an estimate of expenses online at: www.nhti.edu/sites/default/files/content/documents/intercost.pdf
Any International Student planning to request an F-2 visa for dependents must also submit copies of the dependent’s current passport and immigration documents, and plan to include the cost for the dependent’s expenses in their financial support documents (an additional $9,900 for the first dependent, $3,500 for each additional dependent). A letter must accompany the dependent’s documents, specifying the dependent’s name, date of birth, country of birth, country of citizenship, and relationship to the International Student.
* Applicants who reside in the US and have had English as their language of instruction for both their primary and secondary schooling may be permitted to take an institutional assessment to determine language abilities.
** Applicants who score between 380-499 (paper based), 83-172 (computer-based), or 26/27-61 (internet-based) may apply for the General Studies program taking a minimum of 9 credits of preparatory ESOL coursework for their first two semesters as well as a course in computer applications for ESOL students. These courses are designed to help students develop English language skills as well as self-confidence in dealing with challenges in learning, communication, and cultural adjustment in various academic programs at NHTI or other colleges. Students scoring below a 380 on the TOEFL will not be admitted to the college or a program at NHTI.
