Congratulations on your decision to further your education at United Tribes Technical College (UTTC)!

Orientation is a requirement for all NEW, TRANSFER, and STOP-OUT students. Orientation will acquaint you with the campus and give you an opportunity to discuss the many facets of college life in small-groups. Information on academic requirements, course offerings, financial aid, campus activities and more will be presented.

Before each semester there will be an orientation required. In the summer we offer an early thunderbird orientation for all students that want to get prepared for the fall.


  1. You will get your schedule and be able to mentally prepare yourself for the academic portion of your college experience.
  2. You will get all your financial aid and admissions folders complete so you will be able to start school right away.
  3. You will have your housing secured and will have a move in date so you know when to schedule arrival.
  4. Ultimately just the advantage of having a stress-free summer not worrying about registration.


COMPASS TESTING is available Monday through Friday from 8 am-5 pm. If a student has not completed the ACT/SAT within three years or haven’t received satisfactory grades in Math and English from another institution, the compass test must be taken prior to registration. Documentation must be provided. (COMPASS - this test can be taken on campus. If you have questions regarding the Compass Test, please contact the Admissions office)

FASFA Completion- If you need assistance completing the FASFA, any of the Financial Aid personnel would be willing to assist you. Please contact Enrollment Services at (701) 255-3285 ext 1100. Filing a FASFA is required for every student because that is how your budget is calculated for Financial Aid.
