Joint Admissions

Joint Admission


What is Joint Admission?

Joint Admission is a special alliance between your community college and a Texas University. This partnership was developed to make your transition to the university as smooth as possible. As a community college student, joint admission participants can access many of the resources available to university students and receive some university perks before you actually enroll at that university.

Who is eligible?

Any HCC student who has earned less than 30 semester hours of transferable college-level hours with acceptable grades can sign up for a joint admissions agreement. You cannot be on academic suspension from HCC.

What are the benefits?

  • Often a reduced or no university application fee.
  • Academic advising from both campuses to ensure the most effective and efficient path to graduation.
  • Often a university ID; this card will also give you access to the university library as well as discounted or free admission to university sporting events.
  • Often a free university email account can be used anywhere.
  • The easy transferability of courses between the two schools enables you to be awarded an Associate’s degree even after leaving the community college. Your degree plan and transcript will be automatically updated each semester.
