For help, please refer to our veterans successful start guide to ensure you complete each step of the admissions process and find success at NHCC.

Note: No reimbursements can be issued if you pay the application fee before providing documentation of military service.

  • GI Bill Tuition Deferment

    Students awaiting GI benefits under Chapters 30, 33, 1606, 1607, 31 or 35 will have their tuition automatically deferred, while they are waiting for GI Bill payments. Tuition will be deferred when a benefit request form is submitted to the VA by the certifying official. Deferring tuition will hold your courses without having to set up a payment plan.

    • You are responsible to drop your course(s) if you do not plan on attending.
    • Tuition for the semester must be paid in full by the payment plan due date. See payment options for due date.
  • Credit for Military Training

    Your military training may be considered for college credit.  It is a good idea to submit your military transcript(s) for evaluation as soon as possible. Request and submit military transcripts from:

    After NHCC receives your official transcripts, the transfer specialist will review your military training based upon the American Council of Education standards for Military Programs. The College will provide you a copy of your Degree Audit Report (DARS) indicating what was accepted in transfer.
