Fall Semester continues & Spring registration is open

HCC’s fall semester is well underway, and we have passed the halfway mark. Courses continue to use a blended approach to instruction that will allow students to complete lecture activities in a virtual environment while offering hands-on labs in a socially distant, face to face format.

Registration is currently open for the spring semester. We are encouraging students to meet with their advisors and register for the spring term to ensure the courses they need and want are available for them. HCC’s spring term will be conducted using the same teaching delivery method as the fall semester. These delivery methods will include virtual classes, synchronous classes, and hands-on classes based on the students’ program of study.

Face Covering Requirements

HCC requires all individuals on campus to wear a face covering at all times indoors, including classrooms, and outdoors where social distancing cannot be maintained. This is required for all employees, students, and visitors. 

This face covering requirement will be in place until further notice. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Dr. Michael Coleman, VP of Student Services (students) or Sara Phillips, Human Resources Director (employees).


Wifi locations: HCC has established WiFi access locations throughout our campus locations for our students. Please use the link below to view the WiFi access map. 

The HCC library remains open to students. Students can utilize the facility for computer access, study areas, and other needs they have from the library. Social distancing measures remain in place which may decrease the number of seats available at a time.
