HOLBROOK-Students can register for summer or fall semester classes at Northland Pioneer College starting Monday, March 12. Schedules will be available online at www.npc.edu on that same day.
Students graduating from Navajo or Apache county high schools in May will automatically be eligible for "Fast Track" tuition scholarships to enroll in summer classes at NPC.
To qualify for in-state tuition, pursuant to Proposition 300, persons registering for classes must show either an Arizona Driver's License issued after Jan. 1, 1996; an original Birth Certificate; U.S. Passport; verification from an employer of completion of I-9 and citizenship status; or eligibility for federal financial aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process. Students who cannot show this documentation will be charged out-of-state tuition until legal United States residency status can be verified.
Returning students can register in person or online. New students can enroll at any NPC location during regular business hours, which vary by location. When classes are in session, campuses are open 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays.
"These 'Fast Track' Scholarships will help with the transition from high school into college," said Mark Vest, vice president for student services. "These scholarships will be awarded on a first-come basis. Students do not need to demonstrate financial need, just come in, register for summer classes and either show proof of 2007 high school graduation or present a letter from your high school counselor stating you are on track to graduate by the end of the 2006-07 school year."
NPC has allocated a fixed amount for the tuition-only "Fast Track" scholarship program. "Once those funds are exhausted the offer ends," Vest said. "This is the perfect opportunity for students who have been enrolled in dual enrollment classes to finish degree requirements, or get a jump on other course work needed for a degree - hopefully, but not required, from NPC." Home-schooled graduates need to contact Vest directly to apply for the scholarship program.
NPC supports each student's educational goals through affordable tuition, small class sizes and caring, professional instructors. For more information about NPC programs and services, visit www.npc.edu or call 800-266-7845.
