Northern Oklahoma College conducted an on-site enrollment event at the Kaw Nation education center on January 11, 2019. NOC students dropped by and enrolled for the 2019 spring and summer semesters.
Gina Conneywerdy, NOC’s Native American Recruiter and Advisor, met with Kaw Nation tribal members to provided assistance with financial aid, tribal funding, bursar questions, and course enrollment.
The on-site enrollment event was part of the services provided by NOC’s Title III NASNTI grant. Additional members of the enrollment team were Dr. Rae Ann Kruse, NASNTI Grant Project Director; Anna Scott, Distance Learning Specialist; and Karen Howe, Kaw Tribal Education Director.
Conneywerdy said, “Through the NASNTI grant, we are able to provide more personalized student services for Kaw students.”
NOC worked with the Tribe to create an educational access site in the Johnnie Ray McCauley Multipurpose Center where students can use NOC computers to take online classes or connect to ITV courses.
NOC is currently enrolling for the 2019 summer semester and fall enrollment will begin after spring break. Four sessions of summer school run from May 18 to August 1. Fall 2019 classes are projected to begin August 19, 2019.
