Admission Information

Veteran's or active duty military members can apply to NHCC for free by showing your active ID or DD214 to our Admission Office when you apply.  No reimbursements can be issued if you pay the application fee before providing documentation of military service.

  • Please reference our Veterans Successful Start Guide for important steps to complete as part of the admission process as well as during your time at NHCC: Veteran Successful Start Guide

GI Bill Tuition Deferment

Students awaiting GI benefits under Chapters 30, 33, 1606, 1607, 31 or 35 will have tuition automatically deferred, while they are waiting 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:
  • JST
    • Army 
    • Coast Guard
    • Navy or Marine Corps 
  • Airforce

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.
