Non-credit Course Registration Information
Many courses fill fast. We suggest you register at least two weeks before class start date, or by registration deadline if noted. If space is still available in a class, HCC can accept registration for most classes up to the business day before a class starts.
Low enrollments can necessitate course cancellations. HCC will attempt to notify students whose class has been cancelled and help them choose another course or obtain a refund. Completing your course registrations as early as possible helps the college avoid cancelling classes.
To register for non-credit courses complete the non-credit enrollment form on back page. Then, use the Walk-in, Mail-in, Fax-in, or Phone-in options listed below. Non-credit courses must be paid in full upon registration.
Non-credit course registration located in Kittredge Center 2nd floor customer service lobby.
If the college cancels a course, 100% of all course costs are refunded.
