Our Mission

To provide affordable and accessible post-secondary education to the residents of northern Pennsylvania.

Our Identity

Northern Pennsylvania Regional College provides highly accessible, low-cost, post-secondary education and workforce development training to the underserved and unserved of northern Pennsylvania.

We enhance regional economic growth and civic development by meeting employers' needs for skilled workers. By doing so, we create greater opportunities and the career and educational pathways that will help retain and attract residents to our region.

We serve underserved communities in northern Pennsylvania by engaging recent graduates, high school or college non-completers, returning adults, and first-generation students.

We bring classrooms to communities by providing a flexible, career-focused curriculum and quality instruction through the use of interactive media. We offer associate degrees, certificate programs, short term classes, workshops and seminars, and customized training.

We are low-cost, high quality, easily accessible, student-centered, and highly responsive to existing or emerging community needs.

Our future is bright because we fill a unique niche in the way in which we deliver post-secondary education and workforce development to the residents of our region. Our dedicated, highly qualified, and passionate trustees and staff are true partners in ensuring our students' success in school… and in life.
