NPRC Guarantees Admission With High School Diploma

Guaranteed Admissions - NPRC

Northern Pennsylvania Regional College continues to bring accessible and affordable education to residents of northwestern and northcentral Pennsylvania. We want to give residents the ability to remain where they are and eliminate the financial and/or location-based barriers that exist for many area residents when it comes to postsecondary education. To support this mission, NPRC is guaranteeing admission for anyone who has a high school diploma or equivalent.

Applying to college can sometimes be seen as a daunting task. But we make it much easier to start your journey through higher education. To apply, all prospective students need to do is:

  1. Create a FREE account
  2. Complete the NPRC application
  3. Submit your transcripts by contacting your high school and/or previous college and request them to be sent to NPRC’s Registrar (

It really is that simple to be admitted to NPRC!

Kelsey Angove, NPRC’s Assistant Director of Community Engagement says “Attending NPRC is a great opportunity for anyone who is looking to change their life and brighten their future. We come to our students right where they are, making college accessible and affordable. We are a great option for those who may want a second chance at college, those who want to make a change in their careers, and even first-generation college students. We look forward to welcoming our new students this summer and fall to NPRC.”

With five associate degrees and a general education certificate to choose from, there are various paths that students can enter by applying to NPRC. Whether you are a graduating high school senior that may be entering college for the first time or a non-traditional student looking for an opportunity to advance your career, NPRC is a place that welcomes you and will help you achieve your goals. We can be your first college experience or your second chance to build a better life for yourself and your family.

Some additional ways that NPRC has shown their support for their students’ journey in higher education include suspending institutional fees through the summer 2024 term, using Open Educational Resources that result in over 50 percent of textbooks being free to students, and helping to award over $100,000 in institutional aid and scholarships last academic year to combat the costs associated with higher education.

Our welcoming Student Services team is equipped and ready to assist you all the way from the application process to choosing your classes to purchasing your textbooks and materials. When you become a student of ours, we all want to help you succeed.
