Comanche Nation College Offers Tuition Waiver to Tribal Members

LAWTON, Okla.--The Comanche Nation College now offers a tuition waiver for Comanche Nation tribal members.

Provided by the Comanche Nation Business Committee, this waiver will help citizens of the Comanche Nation pay for tuition expenses associated with CNC certificate and degree programs.

            "The tuition waiver was approved in an effort to encourage continuing education, certificates, and degree seekers," Gary Tahmahkera, the Comanche Business Committee Secretary/Treasurer, stated. "Therefore, we passed a Resolution to impact the Comanche Nation and the future of our tribal members."      

The overall purpose of the program, according to CNC, is to recruit, assist, and retain enrolled Comanche students. To meet the criteria, tuition waiver applicants must be Comanche Nation citizens. Other additional requirements include those tribal members who are high school graduates; GED certificate holders; have completed homeschooling at the secondary level; returning students; or current students who have completed CNC admissions requirements.

            Awards for this waiver may be made up to the total amount of tuition for enrolled coursework. This award does not include application fees, books or other fees relating to the cost of attendance.

            "The Nation has taken a very big step on behalf of the Comanche students and its citizenry," Dr. Consuelo Lopez stated. "This tuition waiver will assist in not only educating our students, but it will impact the Comanche community and the local economy as a whole."

             Applications are available through CNC Student Services. Priority consideration will be given to applications received by August 12, 2013.

            For more information, visit Comanche Nation College Student Services Room 30, 1608 S.W. 9th in Lawton or call 580-591-0203.
