Student FAQ’s about HD101
What is HD101?
HD101 is a 2-credit course designed to help students who go on academic probation and suspension. Its goal is to help students gain the skills and attitudes they need to improve their GPA and get off probation, so they can achieve their MHCC dreams! Course topics include: time management, financial literacy and budgeting, emotional intelligence, finding motivation to succeed, educational planning and goal-setting, understanding college expectations and designing habits for academic success.
Who takes it?
- Students who are placed on academic probation and have 45 or fewer attempted credits.
- Please note: Students who are not on probation but feel they need extra assistance in being successful are also allowed to take it. If you know that your GPA will drop below a 2.0, you may pre-register for this course to ensure you have a seat in the class.
Is it mandatory?
- YES, this intervention is mandatory for students with 45 or fewer credits who go on academic probation status.
- Students who do not register for the course and/or successfully complete the course will have a hold placed on their account, barring them from registering for the next term.
- Students who are on track to successfully complete the course will have the hold lifted in time for registration.
How will students find out about this?
- All probationary students receive official College notice of academic probation by US Mail, soon after final grades are filed and processed, at the end of the term.

Will students have to pay for the course?

Will My Financial Aid Pay for this class?
