3. Submit transcript(s)

If you have attended another college and completed college-level coursework since attending HGTC, please have the school you attended submit your transcript to the HGTC Admissions Office.

4. Submit scores from the college placement test (COMPASS)

For some returning students, placement testing might be necessary. You can schedule a COMPASS placement test in an HGTC Testing Center. This test is free to college applicants.

  • After your application is complete, you will receive your HGTC student ID number, called an " H-number". Be sure to make a copy of this number for your home and carry your H-number card when you're on campus
  • You will also receive a Username and Password for access to WaveNet, the college-information site. You will have a WaveNet account so that you can check financial aid, account balance, grades, email, and much more. On each campus, WaveNet Central can assist you in navigating this useful site.

5. Attend an Advisement Session.

Your Academic Advisor will help you create your schedule of classes, so make sure you see an advisor as soon as you have completed the admissions process. Advisors see students on a walk-in basis all year long, so there's no need for an appointment. However, please try to avoid the busiest time, which is right before the beginning of each semester. See a  list of HGTC's Academic Advisors.  If you have questions about the advisement process, email the staff at

6. Pay your tuition and fees by the deadline to avoid being dropped from classes.

Check the Academic Calendarfor these important dates.

Registering on your Own?

Students are not required to meet with an advisor to register for classes, even though it is extremely helpful. If you are unable to come to campus due to a busy schedule or distant location, you can use WaveNet to register yourself, check your financial-aid status, and even view the HGTC academic calendar. If you are taking on the task of registering yourself, remember that we are only a phone call or email away!
