Tuition Guarantee

We understand the cost of college is expensive. NPC has developed a plan to help you and your family better prepare for the cost of your education and provide an incentive to help you graduate on time.

Beginning Fall 2015 semester, NPC is implementing a tuition guarantee for all continuously enrolled students. The NPC Tuition Guarantee means that your tuition rate will be locked until the completion of your degree or certificate as long as you continue to meet the tuition guarantee criteria.

A student must meet the following criteria to maintain eligibility for the NPC Tuition Guarantee.

  • Students must be working toward a degree or certificate.
  • Students must maintain a 2.0 Cumulative GPA
  • Students must complete a minimum of six (6) semester credit hours each fall and spring. 
  • Students must be enrolled continuously, fall/spring/fall/spring.
