Beginning with the Fall 2013 semester, NPC is implementing a program to improve student learning in Internet-based classes. Prior to enrollment in Internet sections (POS 221 & 222 are exempt) students must either demonstrate or develop basic computer skills necessary for online learning.
Students who feel proficient and confident about their abilities can demonstrate this by completing an opt-out test. Those who have trouble successfully completing the test, or want to brush up their skills, must enroll in Skills for Online Learning – ICT 095, a half-credit, tuition-free course consisting of four hours of face-to-face contact and four hours of online work.
The online competency testing requirement is explained on this webpage.
▶ Before you start this form, be sure you have the class number of the course(s) you wish to take (example: BUS 100). You will also need to select the semester you plan to attend (except for courses denoted with a ◆ symbol; those courses you can start the class any time within the semester.
