Online courses are more expensive than in person for a couple of reasons. First, North Hennepin is assessed a $4.50/credit fee by Minnesota State to cover the cost of the system-wide licensing of D2L Brightspace (online course management system) and other licensing costs. Second, the additional amount of the differential is used by the campus to:
a) fund specialized software needed for online courses,
b) offset the additional support costs required for online courses and
c) provide training to employees.
Although NHCC’s online courses are more expensive than in person, we have one of the lowest differential rates of any of the metro area community or technical colleges.
You can either come to the bookstore to purchase textbooks, supplies, bus passes, and NHCC branded items, or visit us at onlinebookstore.nhcc.edu to place an online order for either home delivery or in-store pickup. For more information, you can also call us at 763-424-0808.
