Follow these steps for transfer admission to NHCC if you are a student with previous college experience.
Students who have applied and previously attended NHCC should complete a Student Record Update Form instead of reapplying.
We encourage you to visit NHCC for an information session, appointment, or tour to learn more about applying to college! Are you a veteran or active duty military member? If so, ask us about our application fee waiver before applying.
Complete an Online or Paper application and submit:
-$20 application fee
-Official high school transcript or GED certificate if you have graduated in the past 5 years
-Official college transcripts from all non-MnSCU institutions
All transcripts are evaluated for credit and pre-requisite completion. Please allow up to two weeks for an evaluation (sent by email). Our transfer in to NHCC page explains international, military, and other types of transfer credit.
E-transcripts from MnSCU institutions are automatically received with your application for courses taken after 1998.
Official non-MnSCU transcripts should be mailed to:

NHCC students may receive financial aid to help pay for tuition, fees, and books through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Foundation scholarships are also available!
Placement tests are required to assess college readiness in reading, writing, and math. Test results will determine if students are ready for college-level or developmental courses.
We suggest you review sample ACCUPLACER questions before completing placement tests.
You may be able to complete a placement waiver if you have completed a college-level composition or mathematics course, or have recently taken the ACCUPLACER placement test or ACT.
All new students are required to participate in orientation, which is designed to introduce students to available resources for college success. Academic advisors will provide degree and program information and discuss class registration.
Transfer students in good academic standing with 12+ credits completed may be able to complete an online orientation.
After taking placement tests and participating in orientation, students can register for classes using eServices.
Students may pay for tuition and books using financial aid, cash, check, credit card, payment plan, or veteran benefits.
