Today is the first day of early registration for the spring semester at all five of NTU's locations in Crownpoint, Zuni, Kirtland, Teec Nos Pos and Chinle. It’s important for students to begin registering as soon as possible as it allows our registrar’s office to better plan for course availability. It also helps our business and financial aid offices to begin processing paperwork for Pell disbursements. The sooner students register, the sooner they are able to get the financial aid disbursement.
Navajo Technical University will be working with the Crownpoint Chapter and National Parks Services in hosting focus groups for the development of walking trails in Crownpoint the week of October 21st. We will specifically look to collect feedback of the youth and college students, elders and care takers, and healthcare professionals who utilize the current trails.
Each focus group should last one hour and a smoked brisket dinner will be provided. We only have space for 9 participants in each focus group so please RSVP to Daniel Vandever at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to participate. Please share this information with anyone you feel would provide good insight into trail development in Crownpoint.
For more information, contact me at any time via email or send me a text or voicemail at 505-488-8444.

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!
