Applicants that have a foreign equivalency of a United States high school diploma and meet the School’s admissions requirements may be accepted to Northeast Technical Institute.

The School reserves the right to require a certified official English translation if the language used in the documents is not English. Also, documents that do not have the requisite seals and apostilles on the original foreign high school documentation may opt to obtain an official evaluation of their credentials from a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member organization.

The list of member organizations may be found at And applicants must present this official evaluation prior to the program start date. Finally, Northeast Technical Institute reserves the right to require NACES evaluations for any transcripts in which we are unable to verify the authenticity or legitimacy of the documents provided.

The Admissions Process

Since attending a trade school can seem like a tough process, we’ve broken it down into 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Visit Your Local Campus


First, visit your local NTI campus and get a first-person view of where you’ll be learning. During the visit, you can sit in on classes (subject to availability). This is also a great time to conduct your Admissions Interview.

Note: Appointments are necessary.


Additionally, you can schedule an appointment by calling (800) 447-1151 between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM. And class visits may be made Monday through Thursday (holidays excluded).

Step 2: Attend An Admissions Interview

During your admissions interview, an Admissions Representative will guide you through the enrollment process. Then they’ll answer all your questions and make sure you understand what you’re signing up for.

Because training programs fill up fast, make sure to schedule your interview as soon as possible.

Step 3: Financial Aid and Payment Planning

During your admissions interview, a Financial Aid representative will lay out all of your payment options. And you’ll learn about FAFSA, student loans, and the GI Bill® (for those who qualify).

Additionally, the first step to getting financial aid is to complete your FAFSA. Then once that’s done, the financial aid department can better determine the financial aid package that is best for you.

FAFSA School Code: 041851
