- Current HMC and other 5C International students who have been enrolled for the entire year may enroll in the Summer Session without being full time;
- Visiting international students matriculated at other accredited colleges or universities may enroll in the Summer Session. Because international students would be concurrently enrolled at two institutions, HMC will not take on the I-20. Only their current Designated School Official would need to know;
- HMC is not able to support first-time international students who would be coming from their home country and this would be considered their first semester in the United States.
