As a multi-campus institution, all sites offer educational programs for transferring to four-year colleges and universities and for entering employment. Developmental Studies is offered at all sites for students who need further preparation for college-level academics. Courses in Navajo language, history, and culture are also available at all sites. Tsaile Campus is unique within the Diné College system in serving both a residential student population and a commuter population. It is also the administrative center for the college. Each of the Sites provides educational opportunities, academic advisement, career counseling, and assistance with application for financial aid.
Designed in the circular, holistic tradition of the Navajo Hogan, the Tsaile Campus reflects the strength of the Navajo culture. Administrative, instructional, residential, recreational, and library facilities are placed in reverence to traditional Navajo beliefs and create an environment for growth and academic success. The Tsaile Campus has eight residential halls.
General Education program courses are offered at all sites and each site offers limited degree programs. The main sources of revenue for the College come from the Bureau of Indian Affairs and from the Navajo Nation. The states of Arizona and New Mexico, plus grants from public and private sources augment Diné College’s revenue.
