Visiting students enrolled in the Minnesota State system

  2. Select Courses & Registration, and then Search for a Course.
  3. In the dropdown for College/University, find North Hennepin Community College.
  4. Find your desired course at NHCC, and then click the Add button (plus sign) on the left.
  5. Follow the steps on the top - Search, Search Results & Plan, Review My Plan, and Register.
  6. You will receive an e-mail within 3 business days from Records & Registration with your NHCC student ID and D2L instructions.

Please remember:

  • Non-degree seeking and visiting students are not eligible for financial aid through NHCC. Check with your home institution if you are currently enrolled at another college/university.

  • Only admitted student (not visiting) may submit official transcripts for review to meet pre-requisites.
