Early Admission Program
Hudson Valley Community College recognizes
that certain high school students may
benefit by beginning their college study early.
The Early Admission Program (EAP) allows
qualified students the opportunity to fulfill
high school graduation requirements
through completed college credit. High
school students who have successfully completed
their junior year and who have
achieved an overall high school average of 80
(B) or better are encouraged to consider the
Early Admission Program.
Students interested in the Early Admission
Program will need to complete the following
to be considered:
High school juniors must complete the
Application for Admission and submit it to
their guidance counselor, using the Program
Choice Code (0199) EAP, for Early
Admission Program - Liberal Arts ONLY.
The guidance counselor then completes the
Early Admission Agreement form. This,
along with a Transcript Release Form, is
then submitted to the Admissions Office.
Accepted applicants will be invited to the
college to take the placement test. Following
the test, students will be given information
about the final step in the process, academic
advisement. During the advisement session,
students will pick out their classes and learn
the further steps to enrollment.
