NPC Transfer Agreements

NPC plus University equals degree

NPC University Transfer Agreements (UTA)

Northland Pioneer College partners with other regionally-accredited colleges and universities, both within and outside of Arizona, through official articulation agreements. These agreements assist students with making a smooth transition from NPC to a participating 4-year institution without duplicating coursework. NPC students participating in UTA agreements are able to fulfill the four-year college’s requirements by completing articulated courses at Northland Pioneer College.

Students interested in learning more about UTA opportunities should contact an NPC academic adviser for more information regarding the UTA partnerships available to NPC students.
