The Admissions & Records Office is an integral component of Student Services. The Admissions & Records Office is responsible for the admission, registration, evaluation, graduation, and for the accuracy and maintenance of student records.

Generally speaking, if you have never attended Hartnell before or have not applied or attended in the past year, you will need to apply for admission before you can register. As soon as your application is processed, you will be notified of your opportunity to register for classes. The turn-around time is quick and easy: if you bring your application in to the office, you may be able to register just a few minutes later! 

Financial Aid assistance is available for those that qualify.  It is strongly recommended that you apply for Financial Aid the same time you apply for admission to Hartnell College.  Please follow this link to Financial Aid for more information.
