Out-of-state tuition does not apply since tuition at NTU is based on whether or not a student is an enrolled member of a federally recognized Indian tribe or not.

1Enrolled members with a census number or enrollment number (CIB) of a federally recognized tribe.
2Non-enrolled member (no census number) or no enrollment number.
3Applies to Full-Time students.
4Tuition is calculated at $71.25 per credit hour for enrolled tribal members up to twelve (12) credit hours for full-time status. Summer session full-time credit hour is calculated according to the number of weeks plus one. Therefore tuition is based on number of credit hours up to full time status.

It is the sole responsibility of the student for paying or fulfilling all financial obligations to the college prior to graduation.
