Open House & Registration Express

The best way to get to know us is to visit the HCC campus! 

Open House

Every semester, HCC opens its doors to interested high school students, parents and adult learners at an Open House. It's your opportunity to meet faculty and staff, take a tour of campus, learn about degree and certificate programs, transfer opportunities, student resources and what it's like to be a part of the HCC community. Interested in student clubs, activities and athletics? At Open House you can meet current HCC students and learn about the wealth of co-curricular and extra-curricular options available.

Open House is also a terrific time to apply. Bring copies of your high school transcript or general equivalency diploma and our admissions advisors will help you get started. Have questions about financial aid and payment plans? Our staff will be on hand to answer your questions, and if you bring your most recent tax forms, we'll help you get started on your FAFSA.

Registration Express

Apply, take the computerized college placement test, meet with an academic advisor and register for your classes—all in one day! Our next Registration Express events will take place on July 18 and August 22, from 8 a.m. to noon.

  • If you need to take the college placement test, please arrive by 10:15 a.m.
  • Have credit from another college? Bring your transcripts! 
  • If you have taken a college placement test, or have already taken college-level English or math, stop by any time, 8 a.m. to noon.
