Frequently Asked Questions - Application


Do I need a high school diploma to attend Hartnell College?
No, if you are 18 or over, you do not need a high school diploma. If you are under 18 or still in high school, see a counselor for special admission.

I have turned in my application. Am I enrolled? How do I know what classes I am registered in?
Your application is only for admissions. After you see your counselor, using his/her list of recommended classes, you set your own schedule and either register in person or by phone for the classes and time that you want. Always ask for confirmation whenever you make a change in your schedule.

I have already been to college. What do I have to do?
If you have completed some classes at the college and university level, you are considered a transfer student. You are still required to go through the same matriculation steps as new students. If you wish to be exempted from any of the steps, such as assessment, you need to speak to a counselor.

What if I already have a college degree?
If you have an Associate's degree or higher, you will only need to fill out an application for admission to register for classes. If you wish, you may participate in assessment, orientation, and a counseling session.
