*UPDATE* After several semesters, the problem has been resolved. The technical error which cost my family several thousands of dollars has finally been solved. They will not reimburse the difference, pocketing thousands of extra dollars on the technical glitch. If there is any administrative issue with your account, prepare for a long hard battle.Giving one more star because FINALLY I feel like a student instead of a meatbag to steal from and demean.=======================================I have recently had a negative experience when in the admissions process.They run you around in circles, constantly changing the requirements for what you need, they are very terse and unclear in their directions to you, and extremely unprofessional in their handling of important documents. They have lost original copies of my papers.They have a rather arcane set of laws judging if you are local are not. I've lived 5 minutes away from the school for 3 years now. However my rent is too low so therefore I do not qualify for in state tuition.What... rent is too low so therefore you don't get in state tuition? Madness!I notice that the owner of the school views these reviews. Good. If we need to talk in person about this insanity, I can.

3 weeks ago I showed up though the WIOA program to go to school. I had my admissions form and my Wavier fee that I get through there. I didn’t have time to do it that day so I left. I came back two weeks later to retry and they said I still owed 30$,And Where kind of mean and clearly thought I was lying when I said I was with the WIOA program. They told me to go get another sheet and bring it to them,I came back very upset because I was already cutting it really close to missing the mark to sign up for classes. I walked in handed to them and than I left,Because I didn’t have time at this point to sign up,Bor did I For the rest of the week. Well,Here we are today. I walked in this morning to sign up for classes,And they THEN told me that the form that I got from the WIOA program wasn’t relevant,That it was the wrong form,And the lady at admissions immediately started yelling at me when I started laughing and said “Come on guys I handed it to you and I know I did”. They handed me the directors card and said call this number that they couldn’t “Debate this” with me. So in a rage I went back to the WIOA program told my case manager and stormed out because at this point I’ve tried to re-apply for college three times and literally did everything else I had to do including finical-aid,WIOA program school shopping...All I had to do was sign up for classes,Than when I tried to tell my frustrations to admissions I was dismissed very easily. Whoever this Director is I hope you read this,Because of you there’s another criminal on the street now because when I tried to do the right thing,They absolutely refused to help,Support or even care. I don’t think I’m meant for college,I think this is my proof.

My twin daughters went here straight from high school, both did well, graduated in two years and went on to CCU to finish in another two years. The system works perfectly as designed, we couldn't be more satisfied.

I went to HGTC I can agree they are money hungry.. never got the extra help they always said we could get. Nobody cared that I had a hard time with my class. Everyone would say, there great , and I never got the help I needed. There is no support in the college. If your having a difficult time in a class, they don't help. There not even concerned. But they already got your money; do that explains it. I don't think I'd ever go back there.
