Guest Students

A guest student is one who currently attends another college or university and wishes to take one or more courses at Henry Ford College. The guest student must submit an authorized guest application from his or her home institution.

Students enrolled at another college/university can take classes at HFC as Guest Students and then return to their current college/university, transferring their credits there from HFC. Please note: Guest Students may take any class as long as they meet the class prerequisites.

Just complete the steps below and you will be ready to start classes. You can complete these steps online or you can visit the Welcome Center if you would like in-person help.

NOTE: If you were previously admitted as a First Time, Transfer, or International Student, you do NOT need to submit this application again. You are ready to register for classes. Previous Guest Students who are applying as a Domestic or International Student do need to submit the application below.

If you have graduated from HFC, you do not need to re-apply. Please complete a Change of Program form to be ready to register.

Non-Degree Seeking Students

Students may be admitted to the College by Special Admission for Non-Degree-Seeking Students in order to take a course for enrichment or personal development but not to pursue a degree or certificate. Students eligible for Special Admission include those who are high school graduates, hold GED certificates, or have attended another college. Students admitted under this category must satisfy all prerequisites for courses they take, and they are not eligible for financial aid. If, after completing fifteen (15) semester hours of credit, the non-degree-seeking student wishes to seek a degree from Henry Ford College, he or she may be required to submit educational documents for review and evaluation to verify academic status. Courses taken under a non-degree status may or may not be acceptable for meeting program or degree requirements.
