International Students

New England College is a distinctive environment rich with cultural, academic, and student diversity. We have a strong history and appreciation of the world and proudly welcome students from all around the globe.

In order for our team to help make student transition complete, international students are asked to submit the following for an admission decision:

  • Submit your application using either the Common Application or our online NEC application.
  • If your native language is not English please submit TOEFL, IELTs, or PET scores.  Based on your scores we will determine if you are eligible for admission with or without our English Language program.

  • Have your official, certified high school/secondary school transcript sent to the Office of Admission, 98 Bridge St, Henniker, NH 03242 USA. If your transcript is not in English please submit a fully translated transcript.
  • Complete the CSS PROFILE for financial aid – Please note that NEC does not cover the full cost of tuition, room, board and fees, but does offer some scholarships and grants to international students.

If you are offered admission you will receive your acceptance letter, as well as your Declaration and Certification of Finances Form (DCF). This form is required for us to issue an I-20. With a complete DCF we also require official bank statements verifying the availability of funds. This must be either a bank statement or credit reference from a bank indicating a specific dollar amount in the account, or a statement verifying there are funds to cover the full cost of tuition, room, board and fees listed on the DCF, minus any scholarships awarded. To confirm your enrollment please submit the completed DCF, along with your $300 USD enrollment deposit. You can pay the enrollment deposit online with Flywire here.

We look forward to meeting you!
