Admissions Policies

Be at least 16 years old and have earned a high school diploma: NLS may accept
students who are at least 16 years old. A student under the age of 18 must provide the
school with evidence/proof of his/her legal guardian’s name, address, and phone number.
NLS must receive written permission from the legal guardian in order to enrol a student
under 18.

Year-round open admissions: Prospective students can apply anytime at NLS. Our English
Program has definite start dates and schedules but registration is always ongoing. Refer to
our academic calendar and deadlines for more information.

Equal opportunity: NLS does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, ethnic origin, sexual
orientation, religion, disability, or on any other basis outlined by applicable federal, state,
and local laws.

Placement test: Prospective students must take the placement test to determine their
proficiency level. Students who do not take the test will be placed in Beginner Level.
Students who register and take the placement test a week before classes start are
guaranteed placement in a class at their level. If there are more than 15 students already in
this class, a new class will be created to maintain the low student to teacher ratio.
