Whatever your educational goals, HCC is a great place to start. Students choose HCC to get short-term career training, update skills, or get a solid start toward a four-year degree.

Applying to HCC is easy:

  1. Apply online or download and complete an Application for Admission (no fee) and bring or send to the Office of Admissions, Records and Registration
  2. Submit official transcripts to the Office of Admissions and Registration
  3. You may wish to read about the application process, take a tour of the campus, or request information.

Once you complete these steps you are ready to apply for financial aid, take placement tests, meet with an advisor, select your courses and then register and pay for your classes.
