HCC to Hold Registration Express Week for Fall Semester Aug. 6-12

HOLYOKE — Holyoke Community College (HCC) will be holding Registration Express for the fall 2022 semester on Saturday, Aug. 6, and Monday through Friday, Aug. 8-12, in the HCC Campus Center.

During Registration Express, prospective students can apply for admission, take the college placement test, meet with an academic adviser, register for classes, and set up financial aid — all in one day.

HCC’s Aug. 6 Registration Express event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Campus Center on the main campus at 303 Homestead Ave. Students who can’t attend on Saturday or need additional time to finish their steps can also return when Registration Express continues Aug. 8-11 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Aug. 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Full-term, 14-week fall classes begin Monday, Sept. 6. HCC has two additional fall flex start dates: Sept. 26 for 12-week classes, and Oct. 31 for seven-week classes.

“Becoming a college student can feel overwhelming,” said Mark Hudgik, HCC’s director of Admissions. “Whether students are brand-new, transferring from another college, or returning to HCC, we’re here to help make everything easier. Registration Express puts all of the resources they need in one place.”

Those who can’t make it in person during Registration Express week will be able to connect with registration advisers via Zoom or visit campus another day. Outside Registration Express, the HCC Admissions and Advising offices on the first floor of the Campus Center are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (4:30 p.m. on Fridays).

Students must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend classes in person for the fall semester and must submit proof of their vaccination status before they can register for on-campus classes. Students who plan to register only for online or remote classes do not have to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
