NHCC online students can access a variety of student services.  

We recommend that you perform all the steps listed on this page, so you can identify issues and proactively seek resolution.

The North Hennepin Community College campus is wireless accessible. Feel free to bring your laptop or mobile device and gain access to your online class while on campus.

Library Scholarly Material Access

Students who access library journal articles and other library resources from off-campus may use the barcode number from the back of their NHCC photo ID card, along with their last name as the password. Or they can also use their StarID and password to log in from off-campus.

If you encounter any difficulty with this process, please contact the library staff at librarian@nhcc.edu.

Registration and Next Steps

  • Register by visiting using NHCC's online registration services.
  • Review the Online Student Information Guide.
  • Review the Getting Started Student Tutorials. These tutorials will give you an overview of the system and online learning.
  • Perform a system check . This will verify that your computer can display course materials.
  • Login to online learning. Your course(s) will not be available until the official start date of the course unless the instructor has contacted you with a different start date. If you have any problems logging in, contact the help desk.
  • E-mail your instructor if you have any questions about the course and to find out if there are requirements you may need to complete prior to the start time. 
  • Purchase your books for your online courses. Students are expected to order course books before the first day of classes. Books can be purchased at the NHCC online bookstore or can stop by the campus and visit the college's bookstore in person. To avoid a last minute online rush, you may want to order books up to two weeks before classes start, so your books arrive in time.
  • Test Proctoring, if required for your class, can be done here at NHCC or this list from the state includes other Minnesota institutions that provide proctoring.

Minnesota State provides additional courses that can be transferred to complete your degree at NHCC or other institutions.
