Steps to Apply and Enroll

Step 1: Admissions Application (Future/New Students Only)

Your first step to becoming an HCC Eagle is to submit a free admissions application. Based on your educational goals, you can fill out one of the five admissions applications described below

The online admissions application is for students who have never enrolled in a course at Houston Community College. If you already have an HCC student ID, please do not submit another application. Having multiple applications in the system with multiple student IDs can lead to problems with tracking documents, so please do not submit another application if you have submitted one before.
