Intensive English Program

International students enrolled in an Intensive English Program must show a certificate of completion to be considered for transfer to HCC.

Document proficiency in English. A minimum score of 500 on the TOEFL paper-based test, 173 on the computer-based test, or 61 on the internet based test is required of all international student applicants whose primary language is not English.


The results must be less than two years old at the expected date of enrollment at HCC. TOEFL scores must be submitted directly to HCC from ETS. If you have taken the test, you can request that your scores be sent to HCC by writing or calling EDUCATIONAL TESTING SERVICES, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, USA. HCC's TOEFL codes are: 6281 Department Code: 00. An applicant may have the TOEFL requirement waived if he or she has studied at a U.S. high school for at least one year, completed 12 credits or more at a U.S. college or university with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, or have submitted an official transcript showing completion of an English course with a "C" or better, evaluated by the HCC Language, Literature and Communication Department, equivalent to HCC's EN098, Basic English, from an accredited U.S. college or university. The TOEFL requirement may also be waived if the applicant is from a country whose official/primary language is English as indicated on the CIA Factbook web page.
