A bookstore is available on the first floor of the Campus Center. Assessments, employability services, and job referrals are provided through the Career Center. The services of the Career Center are open to all students at no cost. Student Support Services, a federally funded program, provides services such as personal counseling, tutoring, cultural enrichment, and transfer services. NPCC offers special adaptive equipment, including two print enlargement systems, a computerized voice synthesizer system, and a Braille printer. The college also assists students with disabilities to arrange academic, classroom, and testing assistance.
