Apply Now

You will be asked to select the division for which you would like to apply. If you are interested in more than one program, you will need to fill out a secondary application for each additional division. However, you only need to pay the application fee once.

All applications require a $50 non-refundable application fee. This fee is not creditable toward tuition or other fees in the advent of admission. You will have the option to pay this fee online once you submit the application, or you can submit it directly through this link: Pay My Application Fee

NHSI will waive the application fee for families with financial need.  Please email to submit this request.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at or 847-491-3026.
