About Online Courses and Programs
HCC’s online degrees and certificates make it easier for busy people to earn a degree. Plus, our partnerships with four-year colleges and universities make transfer a snap! In addition to our 100% online programs, many degrees and certificates can be completed 80% or 50% online.
Our goal is to provide an exceptional educational experience for our students. When you take HCC courses online you may be at a distance, but you are never alone. We use both technology and a caring support system to bring our campus to you.
How it works
To take an online class you’ll need access to a computer and an internet connection. Our Course Management System is Moodle.
Online classes are asynchronous, which means students aren’t required to be in a class or online at a specific time. However, you are required to meet deadlines for submitting coursework or taking tests. Your professor doesn’t tell you when to study or do your work, only when it’s due.
Wonder if you’re a good candidate for online courses?
Successful students are organized, self-directed and able to work well independently. Though you may be working online, you are never alone. There is always someone who can help if you get stuck! In addition to your professor and classmates, online tutors are available to assist with academics, HCC advisors are also available to offer transfer and career guidance, and our HelpDesk and MERC Students can help resolve technical issues.
