Enrolling with an NSLC ID
Students who receive an NSLC invitation with an NSLC ID must complete the Enrollment Application in order to enroll in the program of their choice. You will have the option of submitting payment in full or a $350 tuition deposit with your application. If you are accepted to the NSLC, any payment made will be applied to your tuition.
If your application is not accepted, or if you are placed on a wait-list and not eventually accepted to a program, any payment made will be refunded to you.
Applications are considered on a rolling basis. As programs fill quickly each year, students are encouraged to apply for admission as early as possible to speed the application process and help ensure first choice of session and location.
Please apply using the NSLC ID found on your invitation letter.
Note: Students wishing to pay their tuition deposit by check must submit a paper application (download pdf here) by mail.
Enrolling with a Merit Application
Interested students who have not received an invitation with an NSLC ID may apply for admission to the NSLC with a merit application. The NSLC accepts merit applications from students with strong academic records and demonstrated leadership potential.
For students wishing to apply on a merit basis, you are required to submit a teacher recommendation (download the NSLC Merit Application Recommendation form here – pdf).
Steps to Enroll with a Merit Application
We recommend that students apply to the program/session of their choice as soon as possible using the online Enrollment Application or by mailing the paper application below. Upon completion of the application, a space will be held for the student. The student should mail, scan/fax, or email a completed recommendation form (link above) to the NSLC as soon as possible, before or after completing the Enrollment Application. Acceptance is contingent upon review of this recommendation form.
If you have any questions about this process or for additional guidance, please contact the NSLC Enrollment Office at (800) 994-6752 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
