Haywood Community College operates under the open door policy of the North Carolina Community College System. Students are accepted without regard to race, religion, sex, color, creed, national origin, age, or disability. Any person who is at least 18 years of age and a high school graduate or the equivalent, may be accepted by the College. High school students and home schooled applicants 16 years of age or older may be admitted into credit and continuing education courses in accordance with the dual enrollment policies adopted by the state of North Carolina.

The College reserves the right to refuse admission to any applicant during any period of time that a student is suspended or expelled from another college or educational entity due to non-academic disciplinary reasons.

By applying for admission, applicants agree to observe all rules and regulations, policies and procedures of Haywood Community College and the HCC Student Code of Conduct. All documentation submitted by applicants must be accurate to the best of their knowledge. Inaccurate and/or misleading information may be grounds for denial of admission/enrollment or dismissal.

Admission to the College does not guarantee immediate acceptance to the curriculum program desired by the applicant. Admission to certain programs may have additional specific entrance requirements. Students may have to complete Basic Skills or developmental level courses before being accepted into their desired academic curriculum program.

The Director of Enrollment Management administers all admissions requirements and enforces all college admission policies, and procedures
