Trade School Admissions Requirements
Because NTI’s goal is to train as many people as possible for a trade career, there are only 2 requirements for admission. And they are:
#1. Proof of High School Diploma or GED
Applicants must possess a high school diploma or GED.
But for some courses, students may be admitted if they can pass an assessment test. Furthermore, students must show the ability to find work after the program ends.
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 www.naces.org. 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.
#2. Attend An Admissions Interview
During the admissions interview, you’ll sit down with an Admissions Representative, and learn all you need to know about career training. For example, you’ll review the course catalog, and learn about costs. Additionally, the interview allows for the admissions team to gauge whether or not career training is right for you.
To sum up, admissions interviews offer a way to personalize the application beyond what is in the form.
Because interview availability is limited, applicants should make an appointment as early as possible. And, only one interview is conducted for each applicant.
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
Career Training Program Start Dates
Learn on your schedule with NTI’s regular rotating class start dates.
Instead of a traditional semester system, NTI programs start more frequently. So, you’ll have more control over your education and enjoy more flexibility.
