College in the High School
Qualified high school juniors and seniors can take advantage of HACC's College in the High School (CHS) program. You will have the opportunity to enroll in college-level courses taught by your high school or technical school teacher.
CHS students can earn dual-enrollment credits from HACC and your high school. These course credits become part of your permanent HACC record. They can also count towards a HACC degree program. You can also transfer the credits to other colleges and universities.
