Transcripts must show that you have completed at least one college-level math cours and
one college-level English composition course, with an earned grade of "C" or above
in these two courses. Developmental/remedial college courses are not applicable nor
transferable. If you do not meet these requirements, you can submit SAT or ACT test
scores that are no lmore than 5 years old, or take the COMPASS placement test to determine your course placement. You can take the COMPASS test in any one of
HGTC's Testing Centers. This test is free to College applicants.
4. Meet with a New Student Enrollment Advisor or Academic Advisor
An Advisor will help you create an academic plan and assist with your scheduling of
classes, so make sure you see an advisor as soon as you have completed the admissions
process. New Student Enrollment Advisors see students on a walk-in basis all year
long, so there's no need for an appointment. However, please try to avoid the busiest
time, which is right before the beginning of each semester.
If you have questions about the advisement process, email the staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
