North Dakota Tribal College System (NDTCS)
A unified higher education system for North Dakota’s Tribal colleges
NDTCS advocates and advances culturally focused post-secondary opportunities for Indigenous students to empower students to facilitate change for Tribal Nations and communities.
The North Dakota Tribal College System acts collectively to align, develop, design strategies and advocate for projects that meet the goals of students and communities.
Chartered by federally recognized Tribal governments, North Dakota’s Tribal colleges teach and preserve culture and language as a component of the academic curriculum. Tribal colleges are public, affordable, non-profit post-secondary institutions accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, the same as state post-secondary institutions. Tribal colleges proactively collaborate with the North Dakota University System to enhance students’ academic experience that allows for seamless transfers.
