STEPS TO APPLY:
1. Select a course. It is your responsibility to select a course that is offered at a date and time when the student is available to take it.
All courses MUST be approved by a counselor. Please note that your counselor has limited ability to help you select a course. We can make SOME suggestions but we are not college advisers. Our approval of a course is limited to helping you select courses that aren't duplicated by your high school classes but we are not able to help plan a student's college curriculum. However, you can also visit HCC's website for info on earning an AA degree.
2. Turn in all necessary paperwork. Most forms are available on HCC's website in their handbook and on the Dual Enrollment page of HCC's website.
This includes form B, which needs a signature from a counselor and administrator. Plan ahead!
It is the STUDENT'S responsibility to turn in all forms on time. Counselors are not allowed to sign forms after the due date. Paperwork must be RECEIVED by HCC (not postmarked) by the deadline date. If you intend to submit the paperwork the day it is due, you must turn it in to HCC's Dual Enrollment offices on Davis Island.

3. Get your textbooks.
4. Get your grades. Transcripts will be sent automatically by HCC once the course is complete, but sometimes this takes a few weeks to be done, especially for summer courses. If you need your HCC grades added to your transcript sooner, you are welcome to request your transcript from HCC directly and bring us an official copy.
