NPRC welcomes applications from all transfer students and wants to ensure that your transition to NPRC is as seamless as possible. The College hopes to be part of your educational journey and applauds you for taking steps toward achieving your educational goals.
Transferring to NPRC
If you are a student who has previously earned college credit at another institution, you are able to see if your credits will transfer prior to applying by exploring our Accepted Transfer Credit resource. Transfer credits from schools where students have received a C or better in coursework may be evaluated for NPRC course or program credit. Students who are looking to transfer credits must have completed the courses under consideration for transfer credit within ten years prior to the date fall academic classes begin for their catalog of record and must submit an official transcript from the college of record directly to the NPRC’s Office of the Registrar for transfer credit evaluation.
Degree-seeking students may also be eligible to receive prior learning credit, including credits earned through military service, College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Advanced Placement (AP), active industry credentials, or challenge exams.
Transferring from NPRC
Northern Pennsylvania Regional College is in the process of seeking candidacy for accreditation. As part of this process, beginning with the spring 2020 semester, NPRC is operating independently as a non-accredited institution. Please note the following:
- The four major steps of regional accreditation are: pre-application, candidacy, self-study, and accreditation. NPRC has completed the pre-application process and has been approved to apply for candidacy. Currently, the credits you earn will be coming from an institution that is not yet accredited and not yet a candidate for accreditation.
- Transferability of credits is determined by the receiving institution. Many institutions do not accept credits in transfer from institutions that are not accredited; other institutions do not accept any transfer credits. If you want to attend a college other than NPRC AND want to take classes at NPRC during high school AND you want those credits to transfer, we strongly recommend that you speak with the college you wish to attend prior to attending classes to get confirmation that they will accept credits earned at NPRC. You may be asked to provide a course description and/or syllabus to the institution as part of the evaluation.
College transfer agreements, or articulation agreements, are made available to students who plan to transfer from NPRC to complete a four-year degree at another institution.
