Dual Admissions

Dual Admission

The dual admission program provides a simplified transfer process for students seeking a Bachelor's Degree. These agreements are designed to assist students who earn an appropriate associate degree to transfer to one of our four-year partner institutions. Why should you complete your HACC Degree? 

Each dual admissions partner guarantees admissions into the institution in which students meet all requirements. Entry into a particular major is not guaranteed. Upon transfer, students receive junior standing for matching majors. Support, financial incentives, and scholarships are built-in to offer students the best opportunity for success. 

If you are interested, you can sign a Letter of Intent to enroll in a dual-admission agreement. You need to:

  • See your HACC advisor or the dual-admission counselor at your HACC campus.
  • Meet regularly with your advisor.
  • Any questions about dual admission, please contact transfer@hacc.edu

You must enter into a dual-admission agreement before you earn 30 college-level credits. There are some exceptions.

You can only enter one dual-admission agreement at a time. The agreement is non-binding. You may cancel it at any time by providing written notification to:

  • The four-year institution
  • Your dual-admission contact at your HACC campus

Dual admission prepares you for transfer at a four-year institution. The Dual Admission program provides:

  • Early transfer planning.
  • Specific course requirements. You will know the exact credits your intended major requires at your four-year transfer institution. This ensures you will not take non-transferable courses.
  •  An official transcript review every semester. The admissions staff at your four-year transfer institution will review your official transcript. They will make sure you are on track for successful transfer.
  • Clear semester-by-semester academic advising. Your HACC advisor and an advisor at your four-year transfer institution will provide academic advising.

HACC dual-admission students receive:

  • An Associate degree
  • News and event updates from your four-year institution
  • Access to the library and other campus facilities at your four-year institution
  • Scholarship opportunities and comprehensive financial aid program
  • Waived application fee by some colleges
  • An increased chance of your graduating and getting a better job
