Registration Information

Registration Procedures

Registration is the process of selecting courses, receiving a class schedule, and completing enrollment at Navajo Technical University.

  • Students must obtain approved signatures from both Financial Aid office and Academic Advisor on registration form prior to registering;
  • Pre-Registration is open to students, with the exception of students placed on a “hold” status
  • Students who register for classes late will be assessed a late registration fee.

Pre-Registration/Online Registration

Continuing students are allowed to pre-register for classes via the web portal (NTU website link). Dual Credit and students who have a Hold on their account will not be allowed to register using the web portal. Students will need to meet with their academic advisor to complete pre-registration/registration.

Schedule of Classes

The Schedule of Classes is an official publication of courses offered and distributed each semester/session. The schedule lists the semester’s course offerings, dates, times, place, and instructor.

Schedules are available on-line on the NTU website during Pre-Registration and Registration. Online registration for courses is completed after consulting with each student’s academic advisor.

Add/Drop Procedures

Students wishing to add/or drop individual classes must do so by the official add/drop deadline to avoid any penalties. Any requests to add individual courses after the deadline date will not be granted. After the add/drop date, students are responsible for initiating a course withdrawal form unless the instructor submits one based on the attendance policy stated in the course syllabus. Deadline to complete this is until the last day of withdrawal and will be given a grade of a W. Changes in credit hours could affect a student’s financial aid, scholarship, and/or refunds. Students who officially drop classes after the drop/add date are responsible for payment of tuition and any other fees.

All drop/add changes must be completed through the Registrar’s Office.

Course Withdrawal Procedures

Students may voluntarily withdraw from one or more courses or the university, before the withdrawal deadline, without a penalty. A final course grade of W will be recorded on the student’s transcript for each course from which the student withdraws. (See academic calendars for dates.) Withdrawal forms are available in the Registrar’s Office. Students who withdraw are responsible for any outstanding financial accounts. Withdrawing past the Official Withdrawal date requires the assignment of an F grade and is included on the transcript and calculated in the grade point average. Students who do not properly withdraw are responsible for University fees that are non-refundable.

  • To withdraw from a course requires submittal for a Student Initiated Course Withdrawal form or an Instructor Initiated Course Withdrawal form.

Withdrawing from NTU

Students who withdraw from NTU for any reason must follow the procedures below. Failure to do so may result in failing grade(s). It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all necessary signatures are collected.

  • Complete a Student Withdrawal Form (available from the Admissions and Records Office).
  • Obtain required signatures.
  • Return completed Student Withdrawal Form to Registrar’s Office for final processing.

Cancelled Classes and Schedule Changes

NTU retains the right to cancel, reschedule, or combine courses, and to change instructors for any NTU course(s). Courses will be cancelled or combined after the last day of registration if they do not attain minimum enrollment. The procedure to cancel courses are as follows:

  • The Registrar shall identify courses, to include those courses that may impact students’ ability to graduate for that semester. Upon review, consideration for the course(s) will be made to continue and not be cancelled.
  • The Registrar shall provide the list of courses to the Academic Deans.
  • The Academic Deans will meet with and get input from the Department Chairs.
  • The Registrar shall then coordinate with the Deans and Provost to determine which courses will be cancelled.
  • The Registrar with the assistance of the Academic Advisors shall notify the students of the cancellation and make every effort to register them into another course section or course according to the student’s checklist.

    Note: Classes cancelled because of inclement weather will not be automatically rescheduled. The instructor will make arrangements to make-up the class.

Final Examinations

Final examinations are given at the end of each semester. Final exam schedule is posted on our website for days and times of exams. Students must take their final examinations during the scheduled time period. Students who fail to take final examinations may receive a failing grade and jeopardize their academic status.


The Registrar’s office issues both official and unofficial copies of NTU student academic records. A fee is charged for all official transcripts. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, prohibit the release of student transcript record or disclosure of its contents to any third party without the written consent of the student. Contact the Registrar’s office for more information.

Students who fail to meet their obligations to NTU, financial or otherwise, will have their academic records placed on hold until the obligation is resolved. No official transcript will be released to the student or to any other person or institution until all of the student’s outstanding obligations to the university have been paid.
