Second-semester 9th Graders and above who have at least a 3.0 average, have demonstrated maturity and organization, and are recommended by their high school teachers in their core courses can apply for the HSC/GWCC Middle College Program. Students who are accepted to the Middle College program can earn 7 college credits, which will appear on their transcript and can be transferred to their college institution of choice at graduation.
