Foreign Applicant Policies

A very limited number of opportunities exist for non-U.S. citizens to attend EMI courses. Foreign citizens interested in applying should send applications to:

Office of Admissions, Building I, Room 216
National Emergency Training Center
16825 South Seton Avenue
Emmitsburg, MD 21727-8998
(800) 238-3358, ext. 1035 or
(301) 447-1035
FAX (301) 447-1441

Foreign applicants must pay their own transportation, lodging, and meal costs. Because language translation is not provided on campus, students must be fluent in spoken and written English.

Applications from foreign students are not considered during the random selection process following each application period. After students have been placed, if there are vacancies, foreign applicants are considered. Therefore, applications are accepted from foreign students throughout the course of the year. Placement for a requested date cannot be guaranteed. Please allow extra time for processing application requests.
