Spring 2019 Online Courses

SEE THE RANGE OF OPTIONS!

NPC offers a variety of online, internet-based classes which are helpful for those with busy schedules or having difficulty in physically attending classes at an NPC campus or center.

To be successful, online students need certain skills (familiarity with email, web browsers, word processors) and a high degree of self discipline and motivation. You'll also need consistent access to a computer and your own email account.

FIRSTread these important facts about NPC Online Classes.

STEP 1: How to Begin

  1. Go to NPC's online Class Schedule.
  2. Select the correct Term (semester) and year. Example: SP 2019 (spring semester 2019). Leave all the other menus/fields as they are and skip down to Campus (fourth from the bottom).
  3. Selecting Internet as the campus location
    Under Campus, select Internet.
  4. Leave the last three settings at default setting, and click the Search button.
  5. This will take you to a page that lists ALL of the internet-based courses NPC offers for that semester.
  6. Scroll to find your desired course(s). Write down the Course Code. Example: BUS 105-15. You'll need it for every online course for which you plan to register.

Important Course Information

You will need to pay attention to the following items in the class schedule search:

  • In the Status column, you can see whether the course is still accepting enrollment (open/closed).
  • In the Seats Open column, the first number is how many seats are open and the second number is the maximum number of enrollments allowed in that class. [Example: 8/20 -- 8 seats are still available out of a maximum of 20 enrollments.]
  • Be sure to check the Beginning and Ending Dates. Some short-term classes have different start dates from the regular semester.
  • The Note column tells you whether you must concurrently enroll in a separate hands-on lab section and other important information. (Not all classes have notes.)
  • Clicking the Course Code link presents any required prerequisites, the course description [highlight]and textbook information.[/highlight]
  • Your instructor's email address (which you will need to start the course) is available under the Course Code link next to the instructor's name by clicking the i icon.
Computer Skills Test

NPC has implemented a program to improve student learning in internet-based classes. Students enrolled in an NPC internet class for the first time are required to demonstrate or develop basic skills necessary for online learning. Students need to complete the Online Readiness Module by the end of the first week of class. Visit eresource.npc.edu/readiness for more information about the procedure and requirements.

(POS 221 & 222 are exempt from the Readiness Skills Requirement.)

Attention POS 221 & POS 222 Students:

These are considered Open Entry; you can enroll at any time during the semester. The student however must complete the course within one (1) year of the date they registered for the course or they must re-register and pay tuition and fees again. You DO NOT have to prove computer competency before enrolling in these courses – although you are expected to know how to use email.


STEP 2: Registering for Classes

  • Current students should log-in to MyNPC to register for courses.
  • You MUST have the Course Code for each course you wish to register for. Example: BUS 105-15.
  • You will need to select the semester you plan to enroll in. (Does not apply to POS 221 & 222 classes where you can start any time within the semester – but must complete within one year of registering.) Check NPC's current academic calendar for semester start and end dates
*NOTE: Students who have earned 12 or more credits must declare a degree/major before registering. Find out more.

Fill out the Online Course Registration Form

Return to this page when you're done to complete the rest of the enrollment steps.

Submission of the online class registration form does NOT guarantee enrollment in classes. A confirmation email will let you know when you are officially enrolled. (Usually within 5 business days, except for holidays/college closures. Call the Records & Registration Office if you don't receive an email after 5 business days.)

TAKING BOTH ONLINE AND ON-SITE CLASSES? (online ONLY is EXEMPT)

All new NPC students or those who have earned 12 or fewer credits must register for and complete a one-time, two-and-a-half-hour, noncredit Student Success Strategies orientation class. Students who fail to complete orientation before the end of the following semester will be blocked from future registration.


STEP 3: Verify Your Residency

Arizona voters passed Proposition 300, which requires Northland Pioneer College to verify the U.S. residency status of all students. Students who cannot prove legal U.S. residency must be charged out-of-state tuition and may be denied access to scholarships or programs utilizing state monies. Find out what documents are acceptable.

  • If you live outside NPC's service area, you can submit your residency verification via EMAIL by taking a photo of your verifying document or using Scan to Email.
    Questions Contact the Records & Registration Office at (928) 524-7459.  |  FAX (928) 524-7461  |  email.

STEP 4: Pay for Classes

  •  
  • Pay your tuition and course fees ONLY after you receive email confirmation from NPC that you are enrolled in class(es)! Submission of the online class registration form does NOT guarantee your enrollment.
  •  
  • Check the payment due date schedule to see when your tuition and fee payment is due. Failure to pay or to make payment arrangements by these deadlines means you will be dropped from your class(es).

Payment Options:

  1. Pay by PHONE with a VISA or MasterCard, by calling the NPC Business Office at (800) 266-7845, ext. 7480.
  2.  
  3. Use the eCashier Payment Plan, an ONLINE payment option.
  4.  
  5. Pay in person at any NPC campus or center location.

Students may be charged an additional fee for use of electronic textbook materials in some online courses. This fee will be charged upon initial log-in to the online course. See the current fee schedule to find out what other fees may apply.

  •  
  • REMINDER: First-time online students must complete the free, one-time Online Readiness Module listed under step 1, "How To Begin."

STEP 5: Textbooks

Check to see if you need to order textbooks (some online courses don't use them). You'll need the course number for each of the online classes you registered for.

  •  
  • Use the NPC Online Bookstore to see if you need to order the textbook(s). You are not required to order your textbooks through the NPC Online Bookstore, BUT if you order from a different vendor be sure to use the ISBN number to ensure you get the correct book(s)!

STEP 6: Email Your Instructor (Except POS Students)

[notification color="yellow"]If you are enrolling in either of the POS online classes, [highlight]DO NOT[/highlight] email the instructor. Follow the instructions in your confirmation email to log into your Moodle account to access the course syllabus.[/notification]

AFTER you register for an online class AND receive your enrollment confirmation email, you MUST contact your instructor by using your NPC student email account to start your class. [highlight]Your instructor will NOT contact you![/highlight]

All NPC students are given an NPC student email account which is the official method of communication your instructor and the college will use to send you vital information. Your instructor will NOT use the personal email account you provided when you registered.

  • Your NPC student email account information (username and password) was sent to your personal email account in the NPC registration confirmation email you received after you registered.
  • Don't know/have your student email username and password? Call the NPC Support Center at (928) 524-7447.  |  email
