Admissions

Right Career, Right Now

NTC can jumpstart your career by providing:
  • The skills in greatest demand: Our academic programs are carefully designed to give you knowledge and skills in the business and technical fields most in demand by employers in the Bemidji region and across Minnesota. That demand also creates more opportunity for advancement within those fields.
  • “Stackable” credentials: Our certificate and diploma programs are not only marketable themselves, they build toward an associate degree and/or transfer to a four-year university. You can also take a break or switch among related programs without losing ground.
  • A good fit for all kinds of students: We serve such a cross-section of people, you’re sure to find fellow students your own age who’ve made a similar decision: to start college right out of high school, to pursue an education while working or raising a family, to boost their current career, or to make a fresh start.

NTC offers flexible schedules, online learning options and encouraging, experienced instructors who help you develop the skills and experience you need to boost your confidence and make an immediate impact in the workplace. Come join us. Find your passion, earn a good income and establish a rewarding career, close to home. Note: Students must have applied and been admitted to NTC two weeks prior to the start of each semester.
