Howard Community College congratulates all high school seniors on their recent graduation! As you start to think about what life looks like after high school, consider HCC as your next step in your academic journey. HCC has been the first choice for education in this community for more than 50 years because of our high quality courses, extensive student support, affordability, and career preparedness. Whether your goal is to transfer to a four-year institution or jump into the workforce, HCC has everything you need to get you there.

Is Howard Community College your next step? Consider these benefits of going to community college:

Flexibility: In some cases, taking a full course load and finishing in four years isn’t the best option for college students. Community college offers the flexibility to build your schedule to meet your needs – whether that’s to accommodate a full-time job, a disability, or taking care of your family. HCC offers classes on nights and weekends, and offers multiple online course formats so you can find what you need to succeed. 

Affordability: Quality education does not have to come with a huge price tag! HCC offers top-notch courses designed to transfer all at a cost less than half of many four-year colleges. Save money for graduate school, your first car, or your own apartment by starting your college career at HCC.

Support: If you struggled with your grades in high school, don’t be discouraged. HCC has robust academic support services ranging from free tutoring, academic counseling, advising, study skill workshops, disability services, and more.

Aside from academic support, HCC also offers students support through Counseling and Career Services, Fueling Dragons, Financial Aid support, and our cohort programs including Ambiciones and Howard P.R.I.D.E. HCC provides support services and assistance with a broad range of needs and challenges so you can focus on what matters most – your success!

Discovery: Not everyone is ready to commit to a career path right out of high school. Attending community college gives you the opportunity to take transferrable general studies courses while pursuing new passions in a supportive academic environment.

At HCC, you’ll find the resources you need to pursue your passions at half the cost of going to a four year college. With programs designed to prepare students for today’s workforce, you’ll find what you need to support your future: whether that’s transferring or jumping into a career.
