To qualify for NAT-WOU students must provide documentation confirming they are enrolled members of one of the Federally Recognized Tribes included in the Federal Register. In recognition of tribal sovereignty, WOU only accepts the following document types when determining NAT-WOU eligibility:
Tribal identification card
A letter issued by a Tribe’s Enrollment Office as proof of enrollment and membership
Documentation of descendancy alone cannot be used to confirm Tribal enrollment.
Students are responsible for obtaining and submitting the approved document types to demonstrate their tribal enrollment during the admission application process via the student’s Wolf Den application portal. WOU will not apply the discount retroactively for tuition already paid or balances due.
Students who are participants in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) who qualify for NAT-WOU will only have the discount applied to WOU courses and credits.
