College Accreditation

Accreditation is an important credential to look for when choosing a college. If you have credits to transfer, you want to make sure both institutions are accredited and allow transfer of credits. Accreditation is important for your degree to be recognized by employers and professional associations and it is an assurance to students and the public that an institution meets or exceeds standards for quality of faculty, curriculum, learner services, and fiscal stability.

North Hennepin Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, a regional accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
