College Application Information

The Common Application
Click below for a quick guide to creating an account with The Common Application.  Please note that you should use ONLY the Common Application of any other options for application types your college accepts.  For example, TCU allows applicants to use 3 different types of applications - the CA, ApplyTexas, and a TCU application.  If ANY SCHOOL to which you apply accepts the CA, please DO NOT use any other application type.  If you are applying to more than on CA school (such as TCU, SMU, and Rice) it is less work to use the CA because you will only have to complete a majority of the information one time!

Popular Colleges for HC Students

Ordering Transcripts

Students and parents have 24 hour access to print unofficial transcripts through NetClassroom at any time while they are enrolled at HC. 

Requests for official transcripts must be made to the Registrar or Counselor at least 14 days in advance of delivery. Senior students who need an official transcript for college applications must see their counselor, in person, who will submit all official transcripts directly to the college via Naviance, electronic submission or mail. HC is accountable for the authenticity and accuracy of school records and will only send official transcripts directly from HC to the requested agency or school. For any application or item that must be mailed in one package, HC is happy to mail the entire package after adding an official transcript to the packet. Official transcripts will not be given to students or parents to deliver or mail.  

 HC will forward official transcripts on behalf of current or former students at no cost.

 College Application Checklist


"My most memorable moment at HC was most definitely when we beat East Bernard in football my senior year. That was the moment I experienced the most unity with the team and was the most proud to be a part of the Mustang family. One of the greatest traits I have attained at HC is the fearless courage to step out and be different from the rest of the world. This is key, because I know that people will always look at me differently because of my faith and now, I have the courage to tell them why I love Christ."

Ryland Hennessey



"Houston Christian has given me a community where I  grew and reached my utmost potential. I have grown in my faith, confidence, leadership and character. There is no better place that I can say that can do all of these things."

Courtney King




"When I look back on my time at HC, I can't decide on a specific memory because there are too many. I am so thankful for all my teachers and friends. Some of my greatest memories are in Mr. Lister's classroom. Not only was it where I learned Geometry, but it also became my second home and where I would eat lunch every day with my friends."
