Potential or Incoming Students

Admission Process 

  • The two basic admission process steps for earning college credit through College NOW courses are:

    • submitting the Heartland student application

    • completing any required placement tests

  • Your school counselor is your primary resource for important information about the admission process. 

Heartland Acceptance Letter

  • You should receive a welcome email containing your acceptance letter 3 to 5 days after successfully submitting the Heartland student application. 

    • Remember the email address you entered on the application and check your junk/spam filter.

    • Contact HCC Admissions with questions about the application or welcome email/acceptance letter.

  • Your acceptance letter will list your Heartland 7-digit student ID and login name to access your myHeartland account.

    • Use your myHeartland account to schedule an appointment for placement testing if necessary.

    • Use these instructions (PDF) for help accessing your myHeartland for the first time.

Enrolling in College NOW Courses

  • You may request enrollment through your school counselor after you meet all requirements.

  • Heartland staff will enroll students for college credit according to rosters submitted by each school counselor.
