What is the Net Price Calculator?

  • The Net Price Calculator is a tool for students and parents to use to get an estimate of what it may cost to attend North Hennepin Community College.
  • The information you receive from the calculator is an estimate of costs and financial aid.
  • The estimate assumes that you will be a degree seeking undergraduate student enrolled full-time (12 or more credits) in fall and spring semesters. 

How does the calculator work?

  • The calculator uses information on the typical cost of attending North Hennepin Community College, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board, transportation and personal expenses. 
  • Your actual costs will vary depending on your major, the courses you select and your living arrangements.  
  • Using family financial information that you enter, the calculator will estimate the amount of grant and scholarship financial aid that similar students received in the previous year.

Getting Started

  • Using the calculator should take less than ten minutes of your time, assuming you have family financial information available. 
  • You will be asked some basic questions about you and your family’s financial situation so it might be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand.


  • Information you enter into the tool is not retained, transmitted, or used by North Hennepin Community College or any third party.  
  • You will be asked basic information about you and your family’s income and plans for college in order to calculate your expected costs and financial aid.  
  • You will not, however, be asked to enter your name, date of birth, address, social security number or any other personally identifiable information. 

Things to Keep in Mind

  • The Net Price Calculator can only provide an ESTIMATE of costs and financial aid.  It is not a final determination or actual award of financial assistance or a final net price. 
  • Financial aid award packages are determined after a student has submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) indicating the North Hennepin Community College FAFSA school code 002370.   
  • For more information on applying for Federal student aid, go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov.
  • Estimated costs are based on the costs for students enrolled in 2009-2010.  
  • Financial aid is estimated based on the median grant and scholarship aid received by first-time, full-time degree seeking students enrolled in 2009-2010. 
  • The financial aid estimates do not include any loans or work-study assistance. 
  • Education costs and available financial aid programs will vary each academic year.
