CROWNPOINT, NM – Days after it was announced that Navajo Technical University was a top five online value school in New Mexico by BestValueSchools.org, NTU received notice that the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC SARA) renewed NTU’s participation in an agreement that allows students to take coursework at NTU in states throughout the country.
The approval will pay a dividend for students in regards to accessing NTU’s coursework from states outside of New Mexico and Arizona. NTU’s summer semester begins on June 8 and will be delivered completely online before transitioning to hybrid delivery in the fall. NC SARA membership requires institutions to have necessary resources in place to supplement online learning, which has proved useful as NTU has had to switch to an emergency distance education model since April 6, 2020.
“We are working on creating fully online programs with support resources,” stated NTU’s Director of E-Learning Dr. Coleen Arviso. “With this new situation we are improving and implementing best practices for both faculty and students.”
NTU was recognized 4th out of 23 institutions of higher education in BestValueSchools.org’s ranking, which evaluated tuition and graduation rates in addition to academic excellence and a devotion to non-traditional learning.
