Information for International Students

International participants in our program may travel on a B1/B2 tourist/visitor visa or without a visa if from a visa-waiver country. An F-1 student visa is not required to attend Northfield Mount Hermon Summer Session.

TOEFL scores are not required as part of the application. Students in the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) will take a placement test the day after they arrive at NMH. (We offer seven levels of instruction, from beginning to advanced.)

International students applying for non-ESOL classes must provide a graded essay written for their current English class. It must show the teacher’s grade and handwritten comments.

Each year, about 170 boarders and 40 day students attend Summer Session.
