Behavioral Code of Conduct for Students
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
     • FERPA Waiver Form

Identity Verification/Higher Education Opportunity Act – This act requires that institutions offering distance education or correspondence courses or program have processes in place to ensure that the student registering for a course is the same student who participates in the course or receives course credit. NPRC meets the requirements of this Act using the following methods:
     • Secure log-in and password – Each student is assigned a secure login and password on its learning management system (Desire2Learn) and student portal (My NPRC Student Portal). Each student registering for a course is assigned a unique username and secure login that requires them to set a unique password to access their online accounts. Student ID’s are also used to verify the identification of the student when completing a proctored evaluation or using library services.
     • Proctored examinations – Examinations are proctored in one of two ways, or a combination of both. Exams administered through the learning management system (Desire2Learn) are proctored through the remote proctoring system, Honorlock. This on-demand system requires students to verify their identity and monitors and records their exam session. Exams administered in person at site classroom locations have proctors administering the exam. These proctors follow the Assessment Monitoring Guidelines in the NPRC Proctor Handbook.

Group 35

Growing up in rural Potter County, Pennsylvania meant if I wanted good educational and employment opportunities, I would have to move. When NPRC started offering classes less than 30 minutes from my home (almost an hour closer than the next closest college), my future was no longer dependent on living in a more urban area. I received a quality education without spending the tens of thousands of dollars on room and board a traditional school would have required. And now, I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the team making this story possible for so many other people in rural Pennsylvania. NPRC’s mission is a necessary one, helping serve a part of the population that has lacked affordable and quality higher education for decades. This school helped me avoid debt, find my path in life, and now, I have a job I love and opportunities I never expected.

- Brian, NPRC Graduate

While attending NPRC, I am enrolled in 16 credits and working toward a degree in business administration. This switch is already positively benefitting me as a student. I have been keeping up with classes and shifting out of bad habits that may hinder my success. As someone who is diagnosed with anxiety and ADHD, it sometimes gets hard to effectively communicate. However, NPRC continues to provide opportunities to not only challenge myself, but to help me grow as a student, and more importantly, as a person. NPRC was my second chance. My second chance to help me build myself better, and I feel like my future is already better than what it was before NPRC.

-Noah, Business Administration Student

My time at Northern Pennsylvania Regional College has been a great experience even through the COVID-19 pandemic. Never did I imagine doing a year of college in my own home and still be able to be on the Dean’s List and be extremely proud. I am 39 years of age, and it has taken me this long to attempt college. I have to say that starting college at this age was hard. However, everyone at NPRC has made it easy for me to understand what it means to be studious. You can feel the care that is given to you through the staff at NPRC. The instructors are always willing to help and they will always answer the questions that we have. This college is a great way to get started on your new path through life. There are so many options to pick from if you are undecided.

-Claudia, NPRC Graduate

I started with NPRC right after graduating high school in 2018. I was not sure what I wanted to do career-wise, but the criminal justice field had always piqued my interest. Before finishing my two-year degree with NPRC, I decided to transfer to a four-year university to further my education in both sociology and criminal justice. Without the affordability of NPRC and their knowledgeable staff, I would never have dreamed of being where I am today. I will be graduating from RIT in August of 2022 having majored in Sociology and Criminal Justice, as well as having minored in Criminal Justice. I am excited to start a career in the federal Criminal Justice system or within admissions/counseling in higher education. I plan to put myself through law school while working full time after graduating from RIT.
