Mt. Hood Community College has an open-entry general admission policy and welcomes all students who can benefit from instruction regardless of their educational background. Most courses at MHCC require minimum prerequisites of RD090, WR090 and MTH020.
Students can verify they meet these prerequisites and other course prerequisites by one of two ways:
1) submit official college transcripts that validate prior coursework at or above required levels and request an OFFICIAL evaluation be done at
2) take the College Placement Test and score beyond or equivalent to these skill levels.

General Admission:
This application is for new students and returning students who have not attended MHCC within the last four terms or more.
Upon submission of your admission application, you will receive an email confirmation from that the Admissions, Registration and Records Office has received your application. Your MHCC student ID number and registration information will be emailed within 1-2 business days (provide your social security number on the application for faster service). Your student ID number and password will allow you to register for classes by returning to this site (MyMHCC), logging in and registering.


College Now:

The College Now Admission application is only for high school students who are applying to receive College Now credit. The College Now program at Mt. Hood Community College provides high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get a head start on their college experience. Students take college level coursework from MHCC approved high school instructors. All College Now courses are taken in the students’ high school classroom and they receive credit from both schools.


High School Credit Recovery/Acceleration: 

The High School Credit Recovery Admission application is only for high school students who are enrolling in one of our High School Credit Recovery/Acceleration courses. The High School Credit Recovery and Acceleration program at Mt. Hood Community College provides high school students the opportunity to retake a class they previously failed at their home high school, or to take additional classes (upon approval from their home high school) to get ahead in credits. The student is responsible for all fees associated with the Credit Recovery/Acceleration courses.
