Student Handbook Welcome
On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing NPCC where your journey of learning in a warm, inviting atmosphere is about to begin! At NPCC, you will experience a "family friendly" campus where you will be addressed by your first name or nickname and where you will feel comfortable asking for help in locating support services.
On your journey, you will sense NPCC's special touch by learning within a small, personalized classroom setting. You will sense the genuine care and concern of the faculty, staff, and administration when you take advantage of services such as free tutoring, academic and degree planning, improving your technical skills in the computer lab, engaging in on-line searches through the College Library/Resource Center, and/or secure financial aid and/or scholarship dollars. You can also individualize your major by choosing from a variety of degree offerings which prepare you for either employment in your major field of study or transfer to a four-year university. If you are undecided about your career choice, a counselor can assist you one-on-one in narrowing down your options and in choosing the career that is a good fit for you.
During this journey, YOU will be challenged to work diligently on homework, to show up prepared for classes, and to be an active participant in your learning experience. You will, in return, be inspired to go above and beyond, to "think out of the box", and to reach higher than you ever thought possible!
NPCC's mission is simple......Student learning is our focus; student success is our goal. YOUR success is our success! We look forward to beginning this journey of learning with you!
