Guest students are students currently enrolled and in good standing at another College or University and taking courses at HACC to fulfill the home institution's degree requirements.
Before you can begin classes, there are several important steps you must complete:
Step 1: Meet with your home institution advisor to review the Guest Student Course Approval Form.
Your advisor will need to sign the form if scheduling HACC courses that require prerequisites or placement testing.

PLEASE NOTE: Guest students are generally not eligible for financial aid through HACC. However, to determine if you are eligible for financial aid through your home institution, contact your home institution and request that a Consortium Agreement be processed. A Consortium Agreement is a contract between two colleges that helps to determine financial aid eligibility while ensuring that any financial aid is processed through the home institution.
- Guest student course approval to enroll at HACC is required as a means of ensuring your course preparedness.
- The approval is not intended nor does it substitute as transfer course approval from your home institution.
- Consult with the Registrar at your home institution to assure credit transferability.
