When should I apply?

If you’re interested in applying to the American Sign Language-English Interpretation (ASLIE) program, there are two application deadlines for you to consider:

  • Early Decision: If you submit all application materials by November 15, you will receive notification of an admission decision by mid-January. (Early decision is available to freshman applicants only)
  • Regular Decision: If you submit all application materials by January 15, you will receive notification of an admission decision by mid-March. (Regular decision is available for freshman and transfer students)

Note: The Regular Decision deadline is January 15. Incomplete applications after January 15 may not be reviewed for admission.

What is the process for transfer students?

You can apply for transfer admission at any time. We do not require that transfer students have an associate degree. Some programs have restrictions on entry term, so please contact the NTID Office of Admissions Office at 585-475-6700 (voice/TTY) or toll-free in the U.S. and Canada at 1-866-644-6843 (voice/TTY) for more information.

Transfer requirements vary depending on the program to which you apply. For specific requirements, send your transcripts from all previous colleges to the NTID Office of Admissions along with your application so that our admissions counselors can advise you on what is needed.
