Program Eligibility Requirements

Title VI Program
The Title VI program is our federally funded program in which either the student, parent, or grandparent of the student must have a Certificate Degree of Indian Blood (CDIB) and/or a tribal membership. A Title VI Eligibility Certification (506 form) must be completed and is available at enrollment. Title VI students are eligible for all Title VI services, listed below.

Johnson O'Malley Program (JOM)
The JOM program is our tribally funded program. Students must have a copy of their own CDIB or tribal membership card on file in the Indian Education office to be eligible for JOM services. If blood quantum is less than 1/4, a copy of tribal membership must be on file in the Indian Education Office in order to be eligible for JOM services. The requisite Title VI 506 form must also be on file in the Indian Education office. These students are eligible for both Title VII and JOM departmental services listed below.

Attention All Parents/Gaurdians of Native American Students
Your child must receive their tribal membership certificates/cards from their respective tribes. Many tribes are requiring tribal membership verification, rather than CDIB cards, for various and numerous tribal services. Please contact the Indian Education Department if you need assistance.
