If a student successfully completes the 42-hour core curriculum at HCC, that block of courses must be substituted for a receiving institution’s core curriculum when a student transfers. A student will receive academic credit for each of the courses transferred and may not be required to take additional core curriculum courses at the receiving institution, unless the receiving institution has a larger core. Students who transfer without completing the core curriculum will receive academic credit in the core curriculum of the receiving institution for each of the courses that the student has successfully completed in the core curriculum of the sending institution.
