NEW READINESS REQUIREMENTS FOR ONLINE STUDENTS (Beginning with FA18 registration; Effective 4/16/2018)

NPC has implemented a program to improve student learning in Internet-based classes. Students enrolled in NPC Internet classes (POS 221 & 222 are exempt) for the first time are required to demonstrate or develop basic skills necessary for online learning:

Requirements for Students Registering for SU18 Classes

Students registering for SU18 Internet classes still need to complete an
opt-out test or ICT 095 class to remove the ICT hold.

Requirements for Students Registering for FA18 Classes

Beginning with FA18 registration, a new readiness procedure will be in place. There will be no ICT hold for students registering for FA18 Internet classes. If this is your first time taking an NPC Internet class, and you have not previously completed the opt-out test or ICT 095 class, you will need to complete an
Online Readiness Module by the end of the first week of class.

Please follow the directions below to access the Online Readiness Module on our Moodle Learning Management System:
  • Go to the NPC Moodle site at https://moodle.npc.edu
  • Log in with your MyNPC username and password
  • After logging in, click Online Readiness under the STUDENT GUIDE block on the right
  • On the next screen, click Enroll me at the bottom to access the Module (no enrollment key is needed)
  • Complete the Module by the end of the first week of class
Notes:
  • POS 221 & POS 222 are exempt from this requirement.
  • Students who have previously completed the ICT 095 or the Opt-out Test are not required to take the Online Readiness Module.
  • The ICT opt-out test will be discontinued after the SU18 registration is over.
  • The ICT hold will be removed for FA18 registration. Any student can register for Internet classes starting FA18.
  • Beginning FA18, students who are not able to meet the new readiness requirement will be contacted by an academic advisor.
