New Admissions Requirements
February 09, 2012
Students admitted into a degree or certificate program at Herkimer County Community College will need to meet one of the following admissions requirements:
Herkimer County Applicants:
- Possess a high school diploma from a public or New York State Education Registered non-public high school
- Possess a GED
- Completion of the equivalent of a four-year high school course of study (home schooled) under the requirements of Section 100.10 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, as certified by the superintendent of the school district in which the student resides.
Applicants Outside Herkimer County:
- Have a final high school GPA of 68 or higher
- GED score of 2400 or higher
Out of county applicants with a high school average between 68 - 75, or a GED, will be required to complete a Special Admissions Interview and questionnaire as a condition of acceptance. This “conditional acceptance” is intended to assist with college transition and introduce students to available academic and student support services. Students not fulfilling this requirement will not be granted acceptance.
