Welcome to North Hennepin Community College!

We're excited for you to start at NHCC! Our application deadline for fall semester 2021 is Monday, August 16. We encourage you to apply for late-start fall semester in early September (for courses starting in October) or spring semester 2022 (January 10) at this time. Contact Admissions at admission@nhcc.edu or 763-424-0724 with any questions about applying or enrolling in courses.

NHCC will offer nearly 50% of our fall semester courses in a face-to-face (on-campus) or blended/hybrid format, with about 50% of our courses being offered online during COVID. NHCC has been a leader in online education for years, as pre-COVID around half of our courses were already offered in an online or blended/hybrid format. We'll be offering the quality education you expect from NHCC this year in a way that provides you flexibility and helps to keep you safe and healthy. Find more information at nhcc.edu/fall.
