According to the NTU catalog, “an “I” may be issued when unforeseeable circumstances beyond the student’s control prevent the student from completing course requirements. Incomplete grades will not be authorized when the student has failed to complete course requirements or has earned a failing grade due to personal negligence. An incomplete grade must be converted to a credit grade by satisfactorily completing the required assignments within the adjusted deadline (arranged between the instructor and student) of the following semester. A student does not have to reregister for the course if completed within the stated deadline. The Incomplete grade must be converted by the next semester otherwise the “I” will automatically convert to an “F”. The instructor must complete and submit an Incomplete Form to the Registrar’s office.”
Spring Intersession, Summer Semester and Summer Intersession
NTU will start spring, summer, and winter intersession courses this year. Intersession courses help students who have one class to graduate or want to get one course out of the way. Students can take only one course or a maximum of four (4) credit hours during each intersession. Class meeting times for a three-credit hour course for a face-to-face class during the intersession will be 15 hours per week for three weeks.
Spring Intersession: May 18 to June 5, 2020
Registration for spring intersession begins on April 13, 2020, while instruction begins on May 18, 2020 and ends on June 5, 2020.
Summer Semester: June 8 to July 17, 2020
Registration for summer semester begins on April 27, 2020, while instruction begins June 8, 2020 and ends on July 17, 2020. Summer is a six-week program. For a three-credit hour course, class meeting times will be at least seven hours per week for six weeks.
Summer Intersession: July 20 to August 7, 2020
Registration for summer intersession begins on June 8, 2020, while instruction begins on July 20, 2020 and ends on August 7, 2020. Attached are copies of intersession and summer semester academic calendars for 2020-2022. Students who earn an incomplete grade this semester can complete during courses the spring intersession, summer semester, summer intersession of fall 2020. The earlier the students complete the courses the earn an “I”, the better to avoid the “I” from being converted an “F” grade, and it helps the students to have less course load in the subsequent semester.
Navajo Technical University would like to thank everyone for their patience while we’ve been working on getting out Pell financial aid disbursements. As was mentioned earlier in the year, NTU was required to update our degree program files with the U.S. Department of Education in order to reference our programs and ensure each were in compliance. As this process occurred, we were locked out of the system until the update was complete.
As of yesterday, we were allowed access back into the system and can now begin processing the second batch of disbursements. If you have not received your Pell disbursement, please review your MyNTU account to check on the status of your financial aid. If you need help accessing your MyNTU account, email Sharon Platero at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are aiming to distribute the next batch of disbursements to those that have completed their financial aid applications by March 30, 2020. Students, please make sure your address is updated.
For more information, contact our Financial Aid department at 505.387.7442 or 505.387.7417 or email Tyrrell Hardy at email@example.com, Yolanda Begay at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rena Tom at email@example.com. Mrs. Tom is also sending out emails to students missing documents and those that haven’t filled out their FAFSA form. Please monitor your email. If you don’t complete your form, disbursements will be further delayed.
We are working diligently at getting the final disbursements to students and will maintain constant communication as more developments occur. Again, thank you for your patience.
Navajo Technical University (NTU) will cease all scheduled and future campus tours until further notice.

The 2020 AIHEC Student Conference, which had been scheduled for Albuquerque, NM on March 21-24, 2020, will not take place out of an abundance of caution and concern for Tribal College students and their families, TCU faculty and staff, the residents of New Mexico, and most important, our Tribal elders upon whom we depend.
Since the annual AIHEC Student Conference typically brings together at least 1,000 attendees from nearly half the states in this country, this difficult decision was made even though no known case of the rapidly spreading novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been reported in New Mexico. Of course, the number of reported cases could – and likely will – change over the next two weeks. This year, moving forward with the conference was particularly difficult due to the number of tribal governments that have announced travel bans and mandatory quarantines and the decision by several larger TCUs to stay home
Although U.S. governmental officials place the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus low at this time (especially if you wash your hands frequently), already the CDC is urging persons aged 60 and over to begin preparing for potential disruption of daily life should the virus spread to their communities or if they come into contact with someone or something carrying the virus.
We will keep you informed as the host TCUs make decisions on next steps related to this decision, and please check the AIHEC Student Conference website for additional information as the hosts work through the myriad of issues surrounding this decision.
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 email@example.com 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.
