How to Apply

It's simple and straightforward.

At NMH, classes are small, and each student gets lots of attention from their advisor and teachers. We designed the admission process to unfold the same way.

Everything you need is right here on the website: a checklist for both domestic and international students, forms, and fee information. If you require a student visa to study in the United States, you must apply as an international student.

The bottom line is that we are in this together. We'll not only guide you through the process of applying to NMH, but we can also provide valuable information about your overall school search. We aim to give each applicant a truly individual experience.

Please contact us with any questions.
