Returning Student Admissions

If you attended HGTC less than a year ago, see your academic advisor for help with registering for classes.

Returning students are those who previously enrolled in an associate degree, diploma or certificate program at HGTC, but who have not been enrolled in classes during the previous twelve (12) calendar months. In order to be eligible for re-admission to the College, returning students must not have any outstanding financial obligations to the College, must submit an application for readmission. [Note: PACE or other dually-enrolled students must submit a new HGTC application (fee waived, if within twelve (12) months) prior to re-enrolling as an HGTC student in order to identify a major (program of study) and be recognized as a college student for financial aid eligibility.]
