Together with school counselors, students will select courses toward high school graduation requirements. This remains a priority for all students, regardless of program choice. Beginning in students’ 10th grade year, HCC advisors will help students determine which HCC course offerings will best meet their degree requirements and maximize transfer opportunities.

Each course progression has three aims:

These are suggested progressions which represent the most direct route for certain programs at certain institutions, but students’ individual course selections may differ due to their readiness, goals, or interests. Consult your school counselor and/or HCC advisor before making your course selections. Carefully review admissions and program requirements in those programs and institutions you are interested in seeking transfer
