The admissions procedure is based upon a free exchange of information between the applicant and the school.  In cases where the applicant is applying to the school directly from high school, the applicant’s high school counselor may be consulted.  Education representatives conduct a personal interview with each applicant before any decision is made regarding enrollment.  During the interview, the representative will discuss the school’s programs and the applicant’s career goals.

A  School Director will review each applicant file for indication of high school graduation, high school diploma, GED or transcript from an accredited post-secondary educational institution for acceptance.  If the applicant is not accepted for a desired program, an alternative program may be suggested.  Any applicant refused for admission will be notified within seven working days.  Any fees paid with the application will be fully refunded.

The following requirements and procedures are established by New Horizons Medical Institute for admission:

  • Visit the school
  • Complete the entrance interview with the admission’s department
  • Complete the admission’s package
  • Complete the financial arrangements prior to the class start
  • Sign the enrollment agreement

All applicants enrolling in a certificate program are admitted as regular students.
