Student Information
International Student Requirements

Please read the following information, tap or click the "I Understand" button, and sign for agreement. By checking and signing, you are taking responsibility for being aware of and complying with F-1 Visa regulations while you are a student at NHCC.

12 Credit Minimum

As an F-1 visa holder, you are required by the United States government to enroll in 12 or more credits every fall and spring semester. 12 credits is the minimum full-time enrollment. Summer semester is optional.

Mandatory Medical Insurance

Before registering for classes (and annually each August) you will be required to purchase mandatory medical insurance through NHCC, which costs $2,119. Insurance coverage from another policy will not waive this requirement. You will not be able to register for NHCC classes until insurance is paid in full. This cost is noted in the financial certificate that is part of this application packet. For insurance information please visit Contact NHCC to purchase this insurance.

Off-Campus Employment

You may not be employed off-campus without explicit permission from the United States government. F-1 visa holders are prohibited from working outside of the school without first receiving employment authorization by the federal government. You are not eligible for this authorization during your first academic year as a student and cannot rely on approval as a funding source. You are eligible to find student worker employment on-campus at NHCC, but work opportunities are limited.

Tuition Payment

You are required to pay tuition each semester. Currently, tuition and fees are $210.42 per credit. 12 credits = $2,525 per semester (fall and spring semester enrollment is required). Payment plans are available. Students must account for textbooks, supplies, and all living expenses in addition to tuition/fees. For updated tuition information please visit

Communication With International Student Advisor

You must maintain consistent communication with your International Student Advisor. Inform your advisor when your address or phone number change and meet with your advisor regarding your academic program, employment status, and course selection. Your Advisors are your advocates and want you to succeed.
