Indigenous Student Services
Indigenous Student Services is open for participation by any freshman, transfer, continuing and graduate Native American, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, First Nation, and Aboriginal students. The program provides a strong support network and offers co-curricular activities that help students develop and enhance academic and personal skills for a successful college experience. No application process, students are automatically opted into the program as long as students have self-identified as Native on their NAU admissions application.
