Institutional Aid

NPRC is currently seeking institutional accreditation and working diligently to expedite this process. Completing the work of accreditation will allow enrolled, eligible students to receive federal and state financial aid for their approved coursework in a degree granting program. Currently we offer our students institutional aid to help with their educational expenses at NPRC.

The Institutional Aid Application for new students starting the spring 2021 semester is available by clicking on the link below. Provide documentation as instructed based on your dependency status determined by answering the questions on the application. If you are dependent for financial aid purposes you will need to provide parent’s signature and their tax documentation as instructed. Use the Choose File button to upload the required documentation to submit with the application. Clicking the Save button will submit your application, so be sure to attach your documentation prior to clicking Save. If you are missing documentation or signatures, the financial aid office will contact you and ask you to submit an Aid Addendum. Click on the Aid Addendum link to submit missing documentation. Print the signature page, sign, and submit with Institutional Aid Application and/or Aid Addendum. The priority date for new students to apply for aid for spring 2021 is Friday, December 18, 2020. Applications received after December 18 will be considered on a first come, first served basis as funding allows. Every effort will be made to process late applications in a timely manner; however, processing of late applications is not guaranteed by the start of classes.

If you are a current student, have already applied, and received an institutional aid award notification, please do not reapply. Applications only need to be submitted once for the academic year (fall 2020, spring 2021 and summer 2021). Institutional aid will be applied to your account within 7-10 days after you enroll for spring classes, if you maintain satisfactory academic progress. If you have questions regarding the status of your institutional aid, contact the financial aid office at or call 814-230-9010 and ask for the financial aid.
