Navajo Technical University STEM & SKILLS Program provides high school students with opportunities to explore their career and academic interests and spark new passions. STEM & SKILLS also allow high school students to get a taste of college life and meet other students from other high schools.

STEM & SKILLS is a Dual Credit summer program which offers high school students the opportunity to take classes at the main NTU campus located in Crownpoint, New Mexico. The students experience college life during the summer. The program is 4 weeks long.

The program focuses on a number of diverse subjects, such as Welding, Construction, Business and Entrepreneurship, Culinary, Computer Programming and Engineering. STEM & SKILLS offers both residential and commuter options. We work with your high school teachers and administration to match courses and projects that are meaningful to students, school and community. Limited slots are available for students interested in living on campus.

In addition, not only are students able to take classes from college professors or visiting scholars, but they’re also able to listen to lectures from alumni and participate in social activities.

STEM AND SKILLS offers admission through the Dual Credit application process.The program is specific to students from high schools with Dual Credit agreements with NTU. Check the program website for admission requirements.

The STEM & SKILLS Program is fun and educational, plus there is no charge to the student!

 

 

L.E.A.P. Scholar Expectations and Responsibilities

As the first cohort of L.E.A.P. Scholars, students admitted to the summer 2019 L.E.A.P. will be representing not only themselves and their families, but also the NTU staff that coordinated L.E.A.P. It is our hope that by providing an intensive summer bridge program, that we can help admitted first-time enrolled students to achieve university success by offering them college courses and opportunities to build long-lasting friendships. In this capacity, L.E.A.P. Scholars will be expected to represent themselves, their families, and the program in the best light.

L.E.A.P. Scholars are expected to abide by the following:

L.E.A.P. College Courses

College Success (SSC 100; 3 Credits)
Designed for first-time enrolled students, this course adequately prepares participants for the college experience by enhancing skills and increasing knowledge of college life and culture, study and test-taking strategies, and managing students’ financial and educational futures. Students will also discover helpful information that will aid in their planned transfer to another four-year institution, if that is the students’ goal. As for all courses at NTU, the Diné Philosophy of Education is an important component of this class.

Technical Mathematics I (MTH 098; 3 Credits)
This course will cover basic concepts in arithmetic such as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percent, ratio, proportion, measurement, pre-algebra, pre-statistics, probability, and pre-geometry. Course material will be applied to real and relevant fields of study, which includes Navajo culture and Diné Philosophy of Education and mathematics pertaining to students’ major.

Reading and Writing Skills (ENG 098; 3 Credits)
In this condensed, four-week course, we will work towards strengthening students’ reading comprehension and writing skills. We will make our way through literature that is relevant to our lives on the Navajo Nation while paying special attention to writing exercises related to readings and off-campus experiences. Through journal exercises, both instructor and student-led in-class discussions, essay writing, brief writing exercises, presentations, and grammar reviews, we will focus on improving students’ written and oral communication skills. Students will also learn to read and understand culturally responsive texts that value their personhood and draft short essays using various rhetorical forms. Successful completion of this course involves adequate participation in class discussions, writing assignments, field exercises, critical thinking, and above all, a positive attitude and open mind. We will think deeply about writing, reading, and communication within our own historical and cultural context so that, by the end of the session, students will have developed as critical thinkers, readers, and writers at NTU

dualCredit

What Is Dual Credit Program?
“Dual credit program” means a program that allows high school students to enroll in college-level courses offered by a college that may be academic or career technical but not remedial or developmental, and simultaneously to earn credit toward high school graduation and a postsecondary degree or certificate.

Dual Credit is supported and sanctioned by New Mexico Legislation 6.30.7 NMAC (PED) and Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) § 15-342 (13), § 15-701.01 (F), § 15-1444 (B) (4), and § 15-1821.01.

 

Purpose
The purposes of dual credit are to provide high school students the opportunity to enroll in college-level academic or career technical courses offered by a post-secondary educational institution, and to permit those enrolled students to simultaneously earn credit toward high school graduation and a post-secondary degree or certificate.

The programs may also encourage more students to consider higher education, especially students from underrepresented groups. Research indicates that dual credit programs can lead to better completion rates for both high school and college, reduce the need for remediation, shorten time to a diploma or degree completion, reduce the cost of higher education, reinforce the concept of life-long learning through an educational continuum, provide an alternative for students tempted to leave high school to enter the workforce, and provide equal access to higher education opportunities to students whether rural or urban. Especially when offered through distance learning.

 

Eligible Courses
College courses that are academic or career technical that simultaneously earn credit toward high school graduation and a postsecondary degree or certificate shall be eligible for dual credit. Remedial, developmental and physical education activity courses are not eligible for dual credit. Dual credit courses must meet the public education department standards and benchmarks.

College courses eligible for dual credit shall meet the rigor for postsecondary institution credit and be congruent with the postsecondary institution’s academic standards. Dual credit courses offered in high school settings shall conform to college academic standards. Course requirements for high school students enrolled in dual credit courses shall be equal to those of regular college students. Dual credit courses that are part of the general education common core for postsecondary institutions are eligible for transfer among New Mexico postsecondary institutions pursuant to Subsection D of 21-1B-3 NMSA 1978.

 

Course Requirements
The course requirements for high school students enrolled in dual credit courses shall be equal to those of regular college students. Course requirement information shall include the course prerequisites, course content, grading policy, attendance requirements, course completion requirements, performance standards, and other related course information.

What is the Accuplacer?
The Accuplacer is a Computerized Placement Tool designed to provide placement and advising information for students entering college. NTU uses the Accuplacer to help students get into the classes where they are most likely to succeed. In other words, the Accuplacer determines the course placement where you will begin taking classes.  A counselor/advisor will go over your scores with you after you complete the assessment and help you create a degree plan and get ready to register for classes.

The Next-Generation Skills Insight™ statements are available to students on the ACCUPLACER website. Encourage your students to review these statements prior to testing to better understand the skills they'll need to demonstrate on each test. The statements are also a great resource post-testing to help students interpret their performance.

Remember: Your scores determine which classes you may take.

If you need special accommodations to take the Accuplacer, please contact Virginia Edgewater at 505.786.4138 to make arrangements.

The Accuplacer takes approximately two and two 1/2 hours to complete, however, the assessments are not timed and you may take as long as you need.

 

Who needs to take the Accuplacer assessment?
The Accuplacer is required for all incoming students, unless they have already taken and passed college level English and math at another college. Students can also waive the Accuplacer with a high ACT score.

 

Accuplacer Testing:
All new students are required to take the Accuplacer placement test to place students in the appropriate Math and English courses. Transfer students who have successfully completed a college level English and Math with a C or better at another institution (as recorded on an official transcript) will not have to take the test if the course was completed within 10 years of the admission date on the application.

NOTE:  Students who place lower on the Accuplacer placement test than the English or Math courses required by the program requirements for the certificate or degree they are seeking will be required to take additional English or Math courses to help them reach the level of proficiency required for the level they need to complete their certificate or degree. EXAMPLE: a student whose Accuplacer score places them in ENG-098 will have to satisfactorily complete ENG-098 (a grade of C or better) before they can take the higher level required English course(s) for their certificate or degree.

  • You need to have your acceptance letter including your Student ID# before you schedule your appointment.
  • No cell phones or calculators
  • Please be prompt or you will have to reschedule, no walk-ins

 

FAQ

Where do I take the Accuplacer?
You will take the Accuplacer in the Admissions/Registration Building located between the Library and Cafeteria. Call Geraldine Slim at 505.786.4119 for scheduling.

What if I am a distance student?
Although we do not offer the Accuplacer online, we do offer the exam at our campus branch sites, Teec Nos Pos (928.656.3600) and Chinle (928.674.5764). Please call the appropriate site to schedule an appointment.

What will I be assessed in? The Accuplacer has three parts:

  • Reading Comprehension – multiple choice questions related to reading skills, such as identifying the main idea and making inferences.
  • Sentence Skills (English) – multiple choice questions related to sentence structure and grammar…how sentences are put together and what makes a sentence complete.
  • Mathematics (Arithmetic and Elementary Algebra) – multiple choice questions that measure your understanding of math. Questions that range from arithmetic to college-level mathematics are included. You will begin with the easiest section, and depending on your math skills you may advance to more challenging Algebra questions.

How can I best prepare for the Accuplacer?

Associate Degree
Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree — An A.A.S. degree program prepares students to enter either skilled or paraprofessional occupations or to upgrade workplace skills and knowledge. An AAS program is not intended to transfer to a bachelor’s degree, although certain courses may be accepted at some institutions. The exception to this rule is when an AAS is used to enter a BAS program.

Associate of Arts (A.A.) Degree — An A.A. degree provides a foundation in general education including courses in mathematics, humanities and social sciences, communication, and natural sciences. Students may transfer their degree credits to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor's degree in the arts or sciences.

Associate of Science (A.S.) Degree — An A.S. degree is an associate degree in the areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) or in an area of career technical education (CTE) such as Early Childhood Education.


Baccalaureate Degree
Bachelor of Science (B.S.): B.S. programs normally require a student to take the majority of their courses (usually 1/2 or 3/4) in the sciences, namely life sciences, physical sciences, engineering, or the mathematical sciences. Graduate and professional schools typically require a four-year BS or BA for admission. Students pursuing a BS are not required to have an associate's degree.

Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) — An undergraduate academic degree awarded for a course or program in a technical area with substantial applied content that a student can partially acquire by completion of another instructional program or experience in a technical field. A B.A.S. program can be designed to incorporate applied content through various pathways, including collaboration with a community or technical college with block transfer of credits, transfer of credits on a course-by- course basis, or credits for experiential learning. Students pursuing a BAS degree must have an associate's degree (some programs require a specific associate's degree).

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) — Graduate and professional schools typically require a four-year B.A. or B.S. for admission. The curriculum of a traditional B.A. degree is centered on providing a well-rounded, liberal arts education. Students pursuing a B.A. are not required to have an associates degree.
