Step 4

Register for your on-site classes!

There are two ways new students can register for on-site classes:

  1. In person at any NPC campus or center closest to you. See locations.
  2. By phone -  call toll-free (800) 266-7845 and ask for the
         Records & Registration Office, ext. 7459.
  • When you register by phone, you will be issued a Student ID number. Due to Federal law we CANNOT give you that number over the phone, so your student ID number will be sent to you via postal mail. It may take 3-5 days for you to get this information.
  • If you register in person at any campus/center location, please be sure to bring a photo ID. You will be given your student ID number at that time and be able to get your Student ID Card.

Step 5

Pay Your Tuition and Fees

Be sure to make your payment on time so you don't get dropped from your classes! See payment information, rates and due dates here.

Step 6

Get Your NPC Student ID Card

As a registered student, you will need to obtain a Student Identification/Library Card from your campus or center front office. This card allows you to check out library materials and verifies you as a NPC student. To receive your student ID card you will need to have a valid form of photo ID with you to verify your identity AND your paid registration receipt.

Step 7

Order Your Textbooks

You can order all your textbooks and supplies through NPC's Online Bookstore. You will need to have the course number for each of the classes you are registered for. Textbook costs vary widely depending on the number of and types of courses taken. Financial aid may be available or use the e-Cashier Payment Plan (requires up to a 25% down payment).

Congratulations, you are now ready to attend classes at NPC!
