We have a simple admissions process that often consists of only one or two short steps. To learn more about the specific actions required for your chosen program, please visit its individual program page to get started.
Please note that some programs have additional steps in the process, which may include the submission of transcripts or test scores, a petition process and/or a criminal background check. More information is available on each program page.

Credit for Prior Learning
Share with us what you already know, so you can spend time focusing on what you still need to learn. You have the opportunity to gain course credit for knowledge and skills gained through a variety of educational, work, military and other experiences.
Earn Credit for Military Service
Your military service and training experiences may qualify you for college credit. Any potential credit awarded will be based on the branch of military you served.

Earn Credit for Work–Life Experience
We have hundreds of Prior Learning Assessments available that can help you earn credit by demonstrating your ability to meet course competencies based on your work/life experience.
If you need help identifying which program is right for you, don’t worry. You have the option to fill out the application and become accepted to NTC as an undecided student. From there, we have resources available to help you select your program, including our Career Coaches and a Career Decisions course.
Are you undecided on your program choice, or do you simply want to know what the differences are between some of our Information Technology programs, for example? Our Career Coaches can work one-on-one with you to answer your questions.
You can start here and go anywhere by completing your first two years with NTC before you transfer to a four-year university at junior status. Our transfer specialist can help you develop a personal transfer plan to the university of your choice, including guaranteed transfer to UW-Madison.
Competitive Admissions Process
Some of our health programs and our Veterinary Technician program have a few additional steps that are required after being admitted to the college, but before you are able to begin core program courses.
NTC is a Military Friendly School, and we are proud to offer resources and assistance with veteran education benefits for veterans, service members and qualified family members.
Academic accommodations can provide you the resources you need to fully participate in all aspects of learning by reducing barriers and providing support.
International students wishing to attend NTC are required to fill out our standard application, but also must complete a few additional International student admissions steps. These include submitting a statement of financial resources and Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores.
We’re happy to help answer any questions you might have.
