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:

However, upon, but not before, affirmation of the College’s accreditation, any student who attends NPRC during the College’s time as a candidate for accreditation will be able to say that they earned credits from an accredited institution.

The 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. Visit PA TRAC to find a list of courses accepted to other colleges.

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.

For questions about transferring to or from NPRC, email or speak with an advisor!

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.

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.

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.
