Navigating the application for admission, scheduling classes, and the financial aid process can be very intimidating. Our Student Success Specialists are there to help you every step of the way through admissions, application for financial aid, class schedule advising, and anything else that may come up during your time with NPRC. Their focus is on you; their goal is your success. By providing students with tools and resources to supplement their education, Student Success Specialists empower students to reach their personal and educational goals.
Perhaps you have been considering taking classes for a little while now, or maybe it’s a new idea for you. Our Student Success Specialists can help guide you in these incredible opportunities! Whether you want to earn an associate degree, gain additional knowledge for your career through workforce development training, or want to earn some college credits as a high school student.
You may be asking, “What’s the first step I need to take?” or “Where do I go from here?” You may even feel as though everyone has different advice for you and you don’t know how to sort through it. Often students come to us in the middle of decision-making and are struggling to define individual goals in the sea of expectations from family and friends. Our Student Success Specialists are trained to listen, help discuss your options, and assist in planning for your future.
Part of what makes our model at Northern Pennsylvania Regional College so effective is that our Student Success Specialists live and work in the communities they serve. This allows us to know the needs of each community and to meet our students where they are.
We approach education with a non-traditional delivery system. Classes are offered at multiple locations throughout our region (Cameron, Crawford, Elk, Erie, Forest, McKean, Potter, Venango, and Warren Counties) and are brought together digitally, instead of at a single, physical, campus-based location. This eliminates the need for our students to travel long distances and saves them money. Through our interactive, real-time classes, we give students face-to-face time with their instructors and classmates. Unlike most online classes, your questions are answered immediately and with context to what you are learning. The discussion is engaging, and you get to know students from all over the region. It brings different perspectives and learning opportunities to the classroom.
