Textbooks

100-level paralegal courses use NPC's custom-developed online courseware. Access to this courseware is included in your tuition.

For other courses, you will need to purchase textbooks. Textbook costs vary from course to course; the estimated average cost of a new (unused) textbook is $75 per course. A detailed list of the textbooks required for each course, with links to retailers from which they can be purchased, can be found here. Some online retailers also offer used textbooks, and the NPC message boards include a forum for students looking to buy used textbooks from fellow students. This can significantly bring the cost down.


Transfer Credit Policy

Transfer credit is accepted at NPC, within the limits specified in each program description, provided that the credits were earned from one of the following:

  • a course taken at a nationally or regionally accredited college on which the student earned a grade of "C" or above
  • a method recommended for credit by the American Council on Education (such as CLEP exams or certain advanced placement credits)

There is a residency exception for active duty service members.
