Housatonic Community College (HCC) Admission & Requirements

Both Undergraduate and Postgraduate Admission Requirements

In order for students, including non-HSP and all others without a high school diploma or GED to be admitted to Housatonic, they must demonstrate sufficient scholastic ability as demonstrated by meeting the following minimum scores on the Accuplacer placement test: Reading (score of 55 or higher); Sentence Skills (score of 60 or higher); Arithmetic (score of 34 or higher). For consistency purposes, these are the same minimum scores used by the Federal government in determining financial aid eligibility for certain students. A letter of recommendation from their high school principal or a designated representative also must be submitted with the application to the Admissions Office. These students are required to pay tuition and fees for any courses taken.

All students without a high school diploma or GED may be admitted to courses of study for which they satisfy the prerequisites. These students should have such maturity and other qualities indicating ability to profit from a program offered by the college. Maturity level may be determined through a personal interview. The credits earned shall be held until graduation from high school, at which time credits may be used to satisfy appropriate degree requirements or may be transferred to other colleges.

Unless students have qualifying SAT or ACT test waiver, a placement test is required of all students who are interested in participating in the High School Partnership Program and for other high school students on a tuition-paying basis who plan on taking classes at Housatonic Community College.

AP Credits

All students must provide an official transcript from ACE, showing their exams and scores.

  • Scores of 3 and higher = pass and receive equivalent course credit @ HCC (3 credits).
  • Scores of 2 or lower = Not Passing, and do not receive credit.
  • Spanish Placement (per Jamilet ortiz): Score of 3 = SPA 102, Score of 4 = SPA 201, Score of 5 = SPA 202.

The Admissions dept. will accept a high school transcript that shows AP courses. They will use this to waive pre-requisites only.
