PANTHER PREP PROGRAM by Alejandra Carrillo *

Our College Pathways Team works with local high schools to provide guidance and assistance to students with the required steps to enroll known as the "Steps to Success". The Panther Prep Program provides Priority Registration for high school seniors who plan to enroll at Hartnell College after graduation. Onboarding assistance continues throughout the summer for students who missed Panther Prep events.  Once the Steps-to-Success are complete, students are eligible to register for classes.  

If you aren't sure how to complete a step, check out our instructional videos and step-by-step guides below or reach out to our team for additional assistance.
