NTU is waiving tuition for English 98, Math 98, and Science 90 this summer semester; however, students must complete the course. This is a great opportunity for students coming fresh out of high school wanting to get a jump start on their education or students returning after a period of absence and are in need a refresher course before re-enrolling.
Developmental courses are not covered by the federal Pell grant, so this is a good financial option for students. Taking a developmental course often delays graduation by a semester, or however long it takes a student to complete the course. A delayed graduation date puts the student at risk of exhausting financial aid and stopping out.
To prevent this from happening, we encourage you to spread the word about this opportunity with your students and with your personal contacts. Attached is a flyer for the waiver, which is happening at each of NTU’s five locations.
For more information, contact us at 505.786.4107. Registration for the summer is currently open!
