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.

Part-Time Student — up to 11 Credit Hours
Full-Time Student — 12-15 Credit Hours
Overload Student — over 15 Credit Hours

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 and Overload Students
4Applies to Part-Time Students
5Tuition is calculated at $71.25 per credit hour for enrolled tribal members up to fifteen (15) credit hours for full-time status. Additional credit hours over fifteen (15) hours will be charged per credit hour. 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.

Since books and supply costs vary from program to program and year to year, costs for books and supplies are calculated separately from tuition rates but still apply as part of the total coast of attendance.

On-Line Course Fee: $35.00 fee for each on-line course to cover support service (i.e., tutoring and on-line learning tools).

Accuplacer Testing

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.

Remember: Your scores determine which classes you may take.

If you need special accommodations to take the Accuplacer, please contact Geradline Slim at 505.786.4119 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.
