- How long have you known the applicant, and how would you rank the applicant’s overall ability and likelihood to complete the necessary graduate credits/coursework within three consecutive semesters (fall, spring, and summer)?
- How important is the applicant’s completion of the necessary graduate credits/coursework to your tribal college and community?
