High school students may enroll in HACC courses to earn college credits while they are still in high school. Dual enrollment courses are taught at a HACC campus or online.
Many high schools across HACC’s 11-county region participate. Please contact your high school counselor to determine if your school participates.
To get started with your enrollment in a credit program, please follow the steps below.
A HACC admissions professional may come to your school to walk you through the admissions process. Please connect with your high school counselor if this is an option.
- Create an account online
- Apply to HACC
- Select “Dual Enrollment” as the academic program.
- Be sure to select the correct entry term when you apply. The “entry term” is the semester you intend to start taking classes at HACC.
Fall = August-December
Winter = December/January
Spring = January-May
Summer = May-August
Please note: If a student would like for their parent/guardian to contact HACC on their behalf, a Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) release must be on file. Students can add parent/guardian information on their HACC application or request a form from the Welcome Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. If a FERPA release is not on file, HACC cannot release student information to a parent/guardian, regardless of student age. Please see this page for more information.
- Please note that the signature page is not the dual enrollment application.
- The signature page is required to ensure all parties (student, parent/guardian and high school counselor) agree to a student’s participation in dual enrollment with HACC.
- A direct link to the signature page can be found in the student’s dual enrollment application.
- If you are a homeschooled student, please have your evaluator or parent sign off on your signature page.

It is important to check HAWKMail on a regular basis. HACC relies on email communication to students with important registration and payment deadlines, faculty communications and other updates.
- In order to take some HACC courses, students can meet college-level eligibility based on their high school grade point average (GPA) or ACT, PSAT or SAT scores. All measures can be viewed here to determine eligibility.
- If a student does not meet college-level eligibility requirements, they must complete placement testing. Any placement testing requirements for a CHS class will be sent to the student from a success coach. Students can also view course prerequisites and multiple measures and placement testing information on our website.
All dual enrollment students must complete NSO. You will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org to your HAWKMail account within three to five business days after receiving your HACC acceptance email. This email will include information on completing any required placement test(s) and how to schedule NSO. NSO can be completed via Zoom or online.
- It is recommended high school students consult their high school counselor to review course selection options. Some HACC courses can be used for high school credit.
- If students are open to taking any HACC courses, it is recommended students follow the courses for a liberal studies certificate or in the program of study they plan to pursue after high school. General education courses are also good options for students to begin as they start college-level coursework.
- After reviewing course eligibility anddetermining placement, you can register for courses.
- If you receive a prerequisite error when trying to register for a course, please email email@example.com or call 717-780-1972.
- A tuition bill will automatically generate after you register for your course(s). Tuition bills are available and can be paid electronically in your myHACC account, in the Registration/Records tab.
- Student bills are not mailed.
- There are a few ways to pay your bill. We encourage you to review all options, including our payment plan.
- High school students taking dual enrollment courses follow the same tuition deadlines as all HACC students. Dual enrollment students are able to register after the tuition deadline, but must pay tuition or have a payment plan in place at the time of registration.
