Will I be accepted? 

Henderson Community College has an "open door" admission policy, which means you will be admitted to HCC if you have graduated from high school, have earned a high school general equivalency diploma (GED), are eligible to pursue a GED, or are dually enrolled in high school and college.   However, acceptance to Henderson Community College does not guarantee admission to our selective admissions programs, such as Nursing, Practical Nursing, and Dental Hygiene. If you do not have a high school diploma or GED, call 270-831-9610 to discuss additional options.

Is Henderson Community College accredited?

Henderson Community College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award the associate degree. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia, 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Henderson Community College.
