Student Reviews and Ratings for North Hennepin Community College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I was a student here from Spring 2016 to Spring 2017. I saved money getting my generals done here, and I enjoyed the small class sizes. The instructors, for the most part, were all very kind and helpful and wanted to see their students succeed. I enjoyed my time at NHCC, and I would recommend it to other students looking to get their generals done.

Overall Rating:

NHCC is not a conducive learning environment for black people especially those in the nursing program. The instructors intentionally set you up to fail and assume you don’t know what you are doing. It is sad that the administration knows about it and not willing to do anything about it. If you are a black person and especially if you have an accent, go somewhere else, somewhere you are welcomed but NHCC is not that place. Talk about witch hunt, the instructors are very good at it.

Overall Rating:

My initial experience with NHCC is that they are petty and unreasonable. I emailed the school on Friday stating that before I completed their application process I had a few questions. I initiated the process about 10 min. later to get things going but because I accidentally pressed 'complete' on the application I was subsequently charged their $20 application fee. Within minutes, & once realizing I was charged, I immediately emailed NHCC & notified them of the error. No one responded so I had to wait until Monday morning to call. I spent 20+ min. trying to get a $20 refund. NHCC - you just spent 3 staff members, a customer service rep. and manager and a director, who all get paid how much? who could be doing what else?, over the course of 20+ minutes arguing over a same-day, accidental $20 charge? And you are a 'teaching institution? Seriously? $20 NHCC. Now you have to concern yourself with online damage control? Counterproductive, no?I was deciding between two schools but after reading several negative reviews about NHCC, my experience solidified my decision to go elsewhere. No thank you.

Love this school! They have all the latest technology. Always a computer with the newest tech on it and helpful IT personnel on staff. Cheap tuition. Work hard and they'll reward you. I study hard and got two scholarships from the school. Two quiet places on campus for quiet study in student life building and library. Fireside lounge is comfy and fun. Lots of helpful student aid stuff. TRIO program is awesome. Tutors available all week m-f if you need help. Snacks and drink machines everywhere and a great cafeteria. Tons of places for social interaction. Great classes. Would highly recommend this school.
