Registration is conducted at the Tsaile and Shiprock campuses and at regional sites. A registration fee of $20 is required for all applicants. Students are encouraged to pre-register each semester. During registration, students are assigned an academic advisor to provide guidance on academic programs of study and enrollment. Students are not permitted to attend classes or participate in class activities unless they are officially registered.
An individual who does not have a high school diploma may qualify for financial aid by passing an “Ability to Benefit” test.
