Acceleration Options for Military

Acceleration by Testing
HCC offers college credit for passing CLEP (College-Level Examination Program), or DANTES Subject Standardized Test (DSST) examinations. CLEP and DANTES exams can assist current or former service members in achieving their educational goals at HCC. Students can take these exams in order to earn college credit instead of taking a college course.

Priority Registration is available for military personnel and veterans. Priority registration allows students the opportunity to register early for classes needed. Registration dates are available here.
