NPCC is committed to providing access to higher education programs to all students who qualify. The cost of attending NPCC depends on students' residency, program of study and other factors. Financial assistance may help students with tuition, books, fees, and in some cases uniforms. (See a table of estimated costs for tuition, books, supplies, and fees as a suggested guide for calculating college expenses.) We also offer a wide variety of Scholarship assistance.
