National Park Community College (NPCC) is situated just outside the city limits of Hot Springs, the nation's oldest national park service site.

The college was formed by the integration of two colleges: Garland County Community College and Quapaw Technical Institute. Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, it is the fourth largest community college in Arkansas.

It enrolls around 3,000 credit students each semester in both two-year associate degree and one-year technical certificate programs. The programs include Associate of Arts, Arts in Teaching, Liberal Studies, Science, Applied Science, Automotive Service Technology, Hospitality Administration, Industrial Control Electronics, Licensed Practical Nursing, Marine Technology, Medical Transcription, and Welding.

The library has books, periodicals, online databases, microfilms, and audio and videotapes. In addition, it maintains a rotating art exhibit featuring notable Arkansas artists. 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.

At the Student Center, students can watch television, play pool or ping-pong, or enjoy a snack.
