Internships Out of State

Northampton Community College is an accredited institution of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and is authorized by the state of Pennsylvania.

As a member of the  National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity AgreementsNCC offers online courses and internships to students located in other SARA member states, in accordance with the provisions of SARA. All states in the USA, excluding California, Florida, Massachusetts and the District of Columbia, participate in SARA.

The state in which a student resides while completing an educational activity, (internship or an online course,) has authority to regulate the activity. If you live in California, Florida, or Massachusetts and wish to register for one of NCC's online offerings or participate in an internship/clinical placement, please contact us before registering to confirm if we offer those options in your state by calling 610-861-5500.

Licensure Programs

If you are a Northampton or Monroe County student living outside of Pennsylvania or intending to complete an internship or clinical placement outside of the state in a NCC program leading to professional licensure, you should review requirements on the state board website to make sure that the program qualifies.

Licensure requirements vary from state to state and you may require additional authorization from the professional licensing agency in that state. Participating in a program from outside of Pennsylvania, if not properly authorized by that state's professional licensing board, could result in loss of licensing eligibility. If you need help or have questions, please contact your program's academic department for more information
