Contact Admissions

Welcome to NHCC! Our Admissions & Outreach team can help you get started in college or understand how to transfer to North Hennepin.

Interested in joining our team as a Student Ambassador?

The Student Ambassador program is a leadership opportunity for students who are dedicated to serving and representing NHCC. Student Ambassadors provide campus tours, serve as a representative of NHCC on-campus and at community events, and work at the Information Center as a first point of contact for visitors.

As a Student Ambassador, you will develop a wide range of transferable skills that will help you grow academically and professionally. Employers, universities, and scholarship foundations all prefer students who are involved in their campus and community. Becoming a Student Ambassador will help you build your resume, understanding of higher education options, and scholarship qualifications. You'll gain the opportunity for networking and earning letters of recommendation to use for future positions!
