United Tribes Technical College (UTTC) is aimed to provide American Indians with postsecondary and technical education in a culturally diverse environment that will provide self-determination and economic development for all tribal nations. The United Tribes Technical College is a unique inter-Tribally controlled institution of education. It is located on a 237-acre campus three miles south of Bismarck, North Dakota.
United Tribes Technical College was founded in 1969 by an intertribal organization, the United Tribes of North Dakota Development Corporation. It is a nonprofit corporation, operated by the five tribes - the Three Affiliated Tribes, the Spirit Lake Tribe, the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians. The College is headed by a ten-member board of directors that consists of the chairperson and one delegate chosen from each of the tribes.
The College creates a community where Indian people can obtain an education. Programs which are offered here have kept this initial goal in mind, providing not only occupational education and training but also individual and social skills in a culturally-relevant setting, with an accent on children and families.
UTTC offers 5 full Degree Programs, a Certificate in Medical Transcription and several other courses online that are taught from a Tribal perspective. UTTC is accredited to offer Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Health Information Technology, Injury Prevention, and Nutrition and Food Service Associate of Applied Science Degrees entirely online. No residency is required for any of these degree programs.
United Tribes Technical College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association (NCA).
United Tribes Technical College has opportunities available to students seeking additional funding. We offer scholarships, higher education applications from your tribe and college work programs.
