Where can I learn about undergraduate admissions criteria?
The NTID Office of Admissions provides admissions information and materials as well as an online application. Get answers to frequently asked questions about the admissions process. For additional questions email us.
Our admission process is a personal one. Each application is reviewed holistically for strength of academic preparation, performance on standardized tests, counselor recommendations and your personal career interests. We seek applicants from all geographical, social, cultural, economic and ethnic backgrounds.
