At HCC, we understand that due to busy schedules, students may find it inconvenient to attend all of their classes on campus. As a result, we currently offer more than 240 online and hybrid courses in a variety of different subjects, with new courses being added each semester. Information about online classes for those seeking a college degree or other credit-bearing credential is available on this page.

Information related to online courses for non-credit programs offered through HCC's Workforce Solutions and Continuing Education Division is available here.

Our online classes are convenient, and they allow you the flexibility to earn your degree at your own pace, while in a location of your choosing. In accordance with our policies, all of our online students are required to take some form of proctored examination. This ensures, that we maintain level of academic integrity within our programs.
