All waiver requests must be timely and not more than 10 business days after the start of the class. Documentation to support the student's claim is required.
This Late fee must be paid upfront until the petition to waive the late registration fee is either approved or denied. The late fee waiver will not be approved or denied via phone call or email, only by submitting the form.

- The form will include (but is not limited to) an explanation for the request and the name of the person requesting the waiver, as well as the student's name and identification number.
- Waivers may be issued when:
- The late registration was the result of an institutional error; or
- A student was actively engaged in military service, firefighting, law enforcement or other similar public service duties during the registration period and such duties precluded registration; or
- An unusual circumstance beyond the control of the student caused the student to be unable to finalize registration before the first day of class. (Additional documentation should be provided, i.e. supporting documentation of the circumstance, etc.)
- The completed Petition to Waive Late Registration Fee form may be turned in at a campus/center front office, mailed to the Records and Registration Office, or sent via email to the Assistant Registrar.

Listed below are some useful terms that will help you navigate NPC's tuition and fee information.
Tuition is a charge paid for instruction. It is based on the number of credit hours a student is enroll in. Each course at NPC is assigned credit hours and tuition is charged to the student based on the total number of credit hours enrolled in per semester. Some courses at NPC have zero credits assigned to them, but still may require a charge to take the class. Be sure to make your payment on time so you don't get dropped from your classes!
A fee is an additional charge on top of tuition for courses. NPC charges several kinds of fees for taking classes:
Late Registration Fee – Students registering for classes on or after the first day of the semester will be charged a $25 late registration fee, which is non-refundable. Short-term classes will also have a late fee assessed according to the start date.
Exceptions: There are a few exceptions in which the late registration fee will not be applied.
See Late Registration Fee (under Late Registration Fee tab) for Waiver Procedure and Petition Form
Media Fee -- Every student who registers for three credits or more will be charged a Media Fee per semester. This fee is used to help offset the cost of media services that are available to all NPC students, such as computers, audio and video equipment, electronic library resources and internet. Please note this is a general fee and additional fees may apply to specific courses offered at NPC.
Course Fee -- Some courses at NPC have additional fees covering supplies and materials used by students in the classroom. Please note that students may also be responsible for providing other supplies or tools in addition to these course fees.
Special Fee -- These fees cover a variety of other services, such as GED testing, credit by evaluation, online course offerings and others that do not specifically have to do with courses.
2018-2019 fee schedule (PDF)
A semester is a period of weeks during which courses are taught. NPC currently offers three semesters (Fall, Spring, Summer) of classes to its students. A semester is defined by dates on the academic calendar. Although most classes are taught on a semester basis, not all classes taught at NPC have to be started and completed during a semester, such as some internet courses.
Credit hours are units of academic credit assigned to courses. These credits can be combined together to earn an associate degree or certificate. Not all courses offered at NPC have credit hours assigned to them and may not be applicable to a degree or certificate.
An academic year consists of three semesters starting in the fall and ending in the summer. An academic year crosses over more than one calendar year. Example: 2017 - 18 academic year.
NPC's academic calendar contains key dates important to every student for all semesters within one academic year. Information contained on this calendar includes semester start and end dates, registration dates, college closure dates, graduation and more. These dates are for events college-wide, but may not list other important dates for students such as department or program deadlines.
FORMS OF PAYMENT
NPC accepts the following forms of payment: cash; credit/debit card through MasterCard, Discover, VISA; e-Cashier Payment Plan; cashier's check/money order; personal check* (must be pre-printed with the account holder's name, Arizona address and have a greater check number than 199).
