The NTU Child Care Services Program operates within the Instructional Services Department. The center was established to provide eligible children with early childhood learning, recreational and cultural activities. We create an academic, social, physical and emotional developmental environment for learning. We value the child's individual background, and understand that preparation for general readiness in a school system begins with an educational foundation at the earliest stage in life.
Additionally, we firmly believe that parents and guardians play a major role in the child's physical/psychological development, in which behavior is mirrored in their personal characteristics. Therefore, parents are encouraged to fully participate in the design and implementation of the center's teaching materials (curriculum).
NTU Child Care Services is located northeast of the NTU Cafeteria. The center provides a nurturing environment that encourages the development of the 'whole child' and promotes positive parent-child interactions. Childcare services are available from 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday while parents attend classes. The center admits children of full-time and part-time students as a priority. However, if slots are available, children of ABE students, staff and faculty may be accepted. A fee is charged for all participants and is listed in the Tuition and Fees section of the NTU Handbook. Parents who qualify for Child Care Services must attend a Child Care Mandatory Orientation, sign and comply with the Child Care Services contract. A Child Care Parent Handbook will be distributed during the orientation. Parents who do not comply with the procedures according to the Child Care Parent Handbook will have their childcare services terminated.
The center is closed on weekends, holidays and breaks according to the school calendar. For specific information, qualification requirement, or an application for enrollment, call 505.786.4122.
The center charges a daily rate per semester (Fall/Spring/Summer). A Financial Aid Cost Expenditure Statement should be included in the Child Care Application (per child). Before services are provided, acceptable payment arrangements must be made by the parent or student. That is the method of payment that should be provided to the Child Care management, including payment source and/or prior arrangements made with Financial Aid or Financial Services with verification (proof of prior payment plan and authorization). Parents may be referred to Navajo Nation Child Care Development Fund Program to apply for assistance to pay for services.
The NTU Bookstore maintains a complete inventory of college textbooks and school supplies including notebooks, pens, pencils, folders and other items.
Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Navajo Technical University currently provides some financial assistance through two prestigious scholarships. Through many initiatives around campus, NTU has secured funding from various organizations to help offset the costs of attendance. Our goal is to increase recruitment, retention and graduation rates of our students by supporting students with funding.
Each of the programs has requested for specific eligibility requirements that support our Diné Philosophy of Education and the mission of their program.
In preparation for the application, the following information will help improve your competitive application and reduce complications with the selection process:
- You must have completed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have it submitted to our NTU Financial Aid Office.
- Your NTU Financial Aid Application, including all required documentation, must be completed.
- Your NTU Skyhawk email should be active. We will not send out any decisions to personal email accounts due to privacy regulations.
Other important information:
- All scholarships are awarded per semester and are not distributed in annual sums.
- If your eligibility or status changes at any time, your application or award maybe voided or cancelled.
- Not all qualified applicants will receive an award, due to limited funding.
Navajo Student Applicants:
The application requires you to submit your Navajo Nation Voter Registration Verification (NNVR) because the Certificate of Indian Blood only confirms your membership under the Navajo Nation, but not the chapter you are affiliated with.
- NN Voter Registration Verification can be submitted several different ways. The acceptable forms are the NNVR Card, Blue or Yellow Receipt, a letter from the chapter or a letter from NN Election Office.
- You must be enrolled in your chapter for more than 6 months. Verification may be conducted through the Navajo Election Office and the Chapter.
- Do not submit your County Voter Registration Card that is different from the NNVR Card.
- Need a NNVR? The Crownpoint Election Office can provide a letter that confirms which Chapter you are currently enrolled in. Again, they cover the entire Navajo Nation. They are also located by the flea market, where the old police department use to be.
Your application and supporting documents can be submitted in any of the following ways:

Students wishing to drop individual classes or withdraw from NTU completely must do so by the official deadline. Students are responsible for initiating a course drop, or they may be dropped by their instructor for non-attendance. Such changes could affect a student’s financial aid, scholarship, and/or refunds. Students who officially drop classes after the drop/add date are still responsible for payment of tuition and any other fees. Students who are not officially dropped from a course and have passed the Withdrawal deadline will receive a final grade of “WF”, “WP”, or “F” for the course.
Students wishing to add individual courses must do so by the official deadline. Any requests after the deadline will not be granted. All add/drop changes must be completed through the Registrar’s Office.
In the event a student cannot attend classes after final registration of classes, it is the student’s responsibility to withdraw from the college before the Enrollment Withdrawal deadline. Withdrawal forms are available in the Registrar’s Office. Students who withdraw after the withdrawal date on the calendar will be responsible for any outstanding financial accounts. Withdrawing past the Official Withdrawal date requires the instructor to assign a grade of “WF”, “WP” or “F” and included in the transcript. The grade of F will be counted as failing grades which will be included in the calculation of the grade point average. Students who do not officially withdraw by the drop/add deadline will be responsible for tuition and fees in accordance to the Tuition Refund Policy.
Note: Faculty is not responsible for dropping students who do not attend.
Student records are maintained confidentially in accordance with the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974. This law protects the privacy of a student’s educational records by establishing the right of students to inspect their records and providing guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading records. FERPA applies to all schools that receive funds under U.S. Department of Education programs.
Accordingly, NTU has adopted the following policies:
- No document in a student’s record or transcript will be released without the student’s written authorization unless it is for NTU faculty and/or staff who have a need to know, in order to comply with a judicial order, or for emergency health and/or safety purposes. Before NTU can release information to employers or other institutions, the student must have a signed Release of Information form on file.

- Dates of attendance and graduation

- Educational majors, awards, and certificates
- Videotapes or photos of students participating in NTU activities
If a student does not wish to have this information released, a request for non-disclosure of directory information must be submitted in writing to the Admissions/Registrar’s Office. This request must be submitted by the student within the first two weeks of their first semester and is valid until the student withdraws their request for non-disclosure by providing written authorization for the release of that information.
- Students have the right to examine their official file. Requests to examine student records should be scheduled in advance with, and performed under, the supervision of the Registrar. The student must submit a written request to the Registrar requesting the documents to be reviewed and indicating which documents are to be reviewed.
- Students may submit a written request to the Registrar to amend a record that is believed to be inaccurate or misleading.
- Students have the right to file complaints with the Family Policy Compliance Office of the U.S. Department of Education concerning any alleged failures by NTC to comply with the FERPA.
The Registrar’s office issues both official and unofficial copies of NTU student academic records. A student may request an official transcript of their academic record, and it will be issued in accordance with the student’s wishes subject to transcript policies. A fee is charged for all official transcripts. The student’s signature is required to authorize the release of the transcript. Contact the Registrar’s office for more information.
The Registrar may place a Hold on a transcript (official and unofficial) when a student has an outstanding debt to the college. No official transcript will be released to the student or to any other person or institution until all of the student’s outstanding obligations to the university have been paid.
