Effective Fall 2008, tuition is waived for students participating in the HSE Program.

To qualify for HSE a student must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Have a cumulative high school GPA of at least a 2.5
  • Obtain approval from the high school principal, a high school counselor, and a parent.
  • The student must have exhausted all opportunities to enroll in an equivalent course at their High School, including attempts to enroll in Advanced Placement (AP) High School courses.

All courses listed in the Madera Community College Center schedule are available to the HSE student, providing these courses are not offered or are not generally available at the high school campus. Online classes need the approval of the Madera Community College Center Vice President of Instruction (see application link below for specific instructions).
