Minimum Age for EnrollmentMinimum Age for Enrollment
Written permission from a parent or guardian is required for any student under the age of 18 to enroll in credit or noncredit courses except for Transcripted Credit courses. Students ages 16-18 and who are still enrolled in high school, may enroll in Nicolet College credit and non-credit courses providing those courses meet after the regular high school day is over, are part of Nicolet’s Summer term, or they are enrolled through Start College Now or Transcripted Credit. The student must meet the course/program requirements or prerequisites. If the high school student wishes to enroll in a course during the regular high school day, but is not enrolled in Start College Now or Transcripted Credit, they must provide the Nicolet Admissions Office with written permission from a designated high school official that they are able to leave their high school to attend the Nicolet class.
Students under the age of 18 should be aware of the following program exceptions:
• Students under the age of 18 may enroll in the Emergency Medical Technician program. However, they cannot complete the National Registry Exam until they have reached age 18.
• Students under the age of 18 generally may not enroll in Health Occupation program courses. The exception is the Nursing Assistant and Medical Assistant programs. Students may be 15 years of age to enroll in the Nursing Assistant and Medical Assistant programs, but must be 16 years of age when they begin their clinical rotation.
• Students under the age of 18 may enroll in Fire Training courses, provided the student is sponsored by a fire department, is covered by a group Workman’s Compensation Insurance Policy, and has parental permission.
