North Platte Community College is making it easier than ever for non-traditional students to attend orientation at NPCC.

Non-traditional students are defined as those who have been out of school for at least a year. The college has planned a series of shortened orientation sessions for them - designed to accommodate busy schedules.

The events are geared toward those who work full-time and can’t attend a Registration Day during regular business hours, those who have children but no childcare and those who prefer to attend a session with other non-traditional students.

Participants will learn about financial aid, scholarships, student support resources, student engagement, time management, important dates and how to find textbooks.

The focus is on non-trads who have already signed up for classes, but those who have not may also attend, sign up on site or make an appointment to sign up for classes at a later time.

The dates of the orientation sessions are:

  • Aug. 1 – 5:30-7:30 p.m.
  • Aug. 9 – 5:30-7:30 p.m.
  • Aug. 20 – 1-3 p.m.

All will begin in the Welcome Center on the NPCC South Campus, 601 W. State Farm Rd. The first 15 minutes of each event will be designated for check-in.

“Attendees are welcome to bring their families,” said Bobbi Muehlenkamp, director of the college’s Learning Commons. “We will provide a ‘grab and go’ meal, and activities for children will also be available. RSVPs are requested.”

Registration can be done online at: 

The shortened orientation sessions are restricted to non-traditional students only. Traditional and residential students should plan to attend New Student Orientation Aug. 19.
