A high school diploma or equivalent is required to enroll; hence, the applicant must submit proof of achievement to qualify for admission. The applicant must submit the name of the high school and the date of graduation together with appropriate documentation. Acceptable proofs of graduation may include but not limited to, the following:


  • Original high school diploma or academic transcript
  • High school equivalency diploma or official transcript of General Education Development (GED) test scores
  • College transcript which says that high school graduation was the basis of admission
  • A U.S. Department of Defense DD-214 form showing graduation from high school


If an English-language copy of the applicant’s high school diploma or transcript is not available, a notarized translation of the document is required unless a bilingual school staff member can confirm that the document is in fact a high school diploma and that the name matches that on the Admission Application. If the high school diploma or transcript has a different name, the applicant must supply official documentation (such as a marriage license) bearing both names.




New applicants initially will have an intake interview with a Metropolitan Learning Institute School Agent to decide which program they would like to join. This is done to determine student qualification, to give prospective students the chance to ask questions, and to receive the information they need in making an informed choice about registration at MLI. Intake interviews are conducted by MLI Licensed School Agents at each campus.


Before applying for admission, an applicant must complete an Admission Application and file it with the Admissions Office. Applicants need to meet the entrance requirements of the study program they select. The Admissions Office makes the initial determination to accept an applicant based on submitted documents. Transfer credits, if applicable, are also determined and evaluated at this time.


An applicant will be allowed to fill out and sign an enrollment agreement only if there is a reasonable belief that the program will be successfully completed. The school reserves the right to reject the enrollment of any applicant who, at any time during the enrollment process, displays any conduct or behavior that is deemed inappropriate or would be grounds for dismissal if the applicant were an enrolled student.


A $100.00 (New York) non-refundable, non-transferable registration fee is due in order to be placed on the list of qualified applicants. The registration fee is intended only for the date by which an applicant originally registers, but at the school’s discretion, may be used on a different start date.


All documents submitted in support of an application for admission becomes a permanent possession of Metropolitan Learning Institute.
