While the student is ultimately responsible for meeting educational costs, most NTU students receive some source of student financial aid. A student’s financial need is determined by an analysis of his/her income (if dependent of a parent, then his/her parent’s income) and other financial resources considered as income (which may not be reported on the income tax form). It is expected that students who plan on attending Navajo Technical University will be responsible for tuition and fees and other college expenses incurred.
The number and amount of financial aid awards is subject to the availability of institutional, federal, and tribal funds. The type of aid and the amount awarded is also determined by the status of the student, established financial need, and the aid they are eligible to receive. NTU complies with grant, tribal, and federal policies and guidelines in reference to the type of awards and grants received and also by the regulations of the Department of Education in reference to Title IV funds.
