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.

Institutional Aid applications for new students starting the summer 2021 semester are available now. The priority date for new students to apply for aid for summer 2021 is Friday, May 21, 2021. Applications received after May 21 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 summer classes. Final awards will be dependent on level of enrollment and 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.
