Admission Requirements for First-Time Students

To be eligible for admission to the College, a new student must:

1. Submit an admission application, along with the required, non-refundable application fee; applications submitted without payment of the application fee will not be processed.

2. Submit scores from SAT, ACT or college placement test. SAT, ACT, or ACCUPLACER test scores are used to determine proper course placement for new students.

Applicants who have not taken the SAT or ACT may need to complete the writing diagnostic issued by the HGTC Testing Center.

3. Submit high school transcript(s). Applicants should request final official high school transcript or GED scores be forwarded to the HGTC Admissions Office. The Admissions Office will consider Multiple Measures for placement and will review high school transcripts/GED Scores during the enrollment process. High School/GED performance will be used by advisors to appropriately place students into courses.

High School Transcripts – If high school performance resulted in a 2.6 unweighted GPA and a “B” average in English and Math courses, students may be admitted and placed into college level courses.

GED Scores – If GED College Ready scores are 165 or higher in Reading through Language Arts and Mathematical Reason, students may be admitted and placed into college level courses.
