Student Success Stories
I have taken courses with NPRC for a year and I have been so pleased with the curriculum and affordability of the program. I have had amazing support in pursuing my educational goals, both financially and academically. I believe that with NPRC’s accessibility, it’s the driving tool for bringing new people into the community and helping the surrounding counties grow from within thanks to its great, inclusive environment right next door.
Samanta, Degree Student
As a high school student, I was not motivated at all. Once I enrolled at NPRC my SSS really helped motivate me and help me find my path. The combination of a live classroom setting while integrating technology gives a great learning atmosphere for students to prosper. After I finish this term, I am planning to transfer to the Rochester Institute of Technology to pursue my bachelor’s degree and participate in the ROTC program. I will always be grateful for my college experience through NPRC.
Ally P., Degree Student
NPRC is great because it is so easy to develop relationships with your teachers and fellow students. I’ve tried online classes before, but because they are so impersonal, I ended up not completing the program. The face-to-face format is extremely helpful in learning! No matter what age you are, you fit right in. Be proud of yourself that you are furthering your education and take advantage of all the people at NPRC who want to help you succeed.
Katie S., Non-Degree Student
Having evening classes allowed me to work full time and start my career, then advance within the company after completing my degree. I was able to gain experience while earning my degree, which is great. I really loved the Interactive Television (ITV). The ability to have a traditional classroom experience without having to travel is an amazing thing, especially for our area! This program changed my life. It allowed me to earn a degree while still maintaining my obligations at home. I am so very thankful for this opportunity and I really hope it continues to grow.
Tesla, Degree Student
My daughter Mckenna will be transferring to Edinboro University in the fall. She has also been accepted into the ROTC program with a scholarship. Her transfer was made possible and initiated by the opportunities that were offered to her because of your program. Her original plan was to transfer after completing two years, but because of the successes she achieved with Northern Pennsylvania Regional College, this opportunity came her way. Her participation in your program has been successful and rewarding. We will continue to recommend your institution to aspiring students.
