• Heartland applications must be completed by December 21, 2018 to be eligible for ANY dual credit class for the 2019-20 school year.  

    NO exceptions!


    Click here for the Dual Credit Information Handout (August 2018)which lists and describes all courses offered for the 2019-20 school year.  ***Course offerings are based on student requests/enrollment.   All courses represent potential courses for the 2019-20 school year.  Courses that do not have sufficient enrollment will not be offered.


    Interested students must complete the College N.O.W. Student Admission Process:

    1. Complete the HCC Application online by December 21, 2018 by going to www.heartland.edu/application 

    2. Complete the Heartland basic skills assessment, called ACCUPLACER.  Students will register for the assessment(s) through their myHeartland account...usually takes about 2 weeks to be able to do so after applying.  

    **Students only interested in the Health, Safety, and Nutrition of the Young Child do NOT need to take the ACCUPLACER assessment, but they must still complete the Heartland application.
    Friendly Reminders:   
    If a student is currently enrolled in a dual credit course for the 2018-19 school year, they do not need to reapply or reassess.  They are still active at Heartland and still qualify for the 2019-20 school year.
    If a student applied, assessed, and placed into dual credit courses for the 2018-19 school year, but chose not to take a dual credit course this year, they MUST reapply!  If a student cannot remember if they qualified on the placement test, please have them see their counselor.
