Admissions Guidelines

Ready, set, go!

If you have graduated from high school or earned a GED, you’re ready to begin.  Get started with classes now by submitting an application and some additional information.

What additional information will I need to submit?

You’ll need to provide:

  • Your official high school transcript with graduation date or GED test scores
  • Scores from a placement test such as the ACT or COMPASS
  • Official transcripts from all non-KCTCS colleges (must be mailed directly to the Office of Admissions)


Are there other requirements?

If you want to enter a technical or selective admission program, you may have additional requirements.  For more information, contact the Office of Admissions or an HCTC Admission Advisor prior to application.

Are there any other admission restrictions?

Not at all.  If you meet the general requirements for admission, you will be considered regardless of race, color, religion, gender, marital status, national origin, age, sexual orientation, or mental or physical disability.
