UCLA Extension and TLCEE offer an On-line Tribal Learning Community. Geared toward working adults, these classes vary in duration and are designed to be flexible, for even the busiest schedules. Together, UCLA Extension and TLCEE have developed a program called Working in Contemporary Native Nations, which is aimed at giving the student gainful knowledge in understanding the complexities contemporary issues affecting our Native communities. When completed, a student can gain a verification of completion that certifies that the student has satisfactorily completed program coursework within the TLCEE online program.
Scholarship Applications for Summer 2017
(Scholarship Applications for Summer 2017 due by July 3, 2017)
As a result of collaborative efforts between TLCEE, UCLA Extension, and the Tribal Law and Policy Institute, we are able to offer a wide spectrum of on-line courses. As of 2007, TLCEE offers an online certificate of verification called Working in Contemporary Native Nations. These courses are open to everyone-with or without a high school diploma or equivalency. Because UCLA does not offer part-time options for students, the TLCEE online courses provide the opportunity for participants to earn transferable credits at a pace that will work for their lives. Enrollees are able to earn a certificate of verification by taking four courses total: three core courses and one elective.
Thanks to the generosity of the San Manuel Band of Serrano Mission Indians, TLCEE offers several scholarships per quarter for community members to take these on-line courses. Please apply using our online application or for more information please contact us at TLCEE@lawnet.ucla.edu or call (310) 794-5216.
