Becoming a College NOW Student

Heartland Application

You must successfully submit the Heartland student application online if you intend to earn dual credit for HCC courses you take through your high school or career center. It's quick, easy and free -- just make sure you have all the information you need from your high school counselor!

Here is a guide for applying to Heartland (PDF).

Remember that application submission does not equal course enrollment! You will work with your counselor to select dual credit courses during your high school enrollment period.

Placement Testing

If required, your next step is to make an appointment to complete placement testing at Heartland by logging in to your myHeartland account. Review your acceptance letter for myHeartland student information!

Here is a guide for using myHeartland (PDF).

When available, you can review potential courses for your high school or career center to see if any placement tests are required OR wait for more information from your high school.
