Online and Blended Learning

Flexible and Convenient

HCC’s online degrees and certificates make it easier for busy people to earn a degree, and our partnerships with four-year colleges and universities make transfer simple! In addition to our 100% online programs, many degrees and certificates can be completed 50%-80% online.

At HCC, our goal is to provide an exceptional educational experience for our students, whether on campus, hybrid, or online. HCC online courses are taught by the same highly qualified faculty that report to the academic departments, and the classes are of the same high quality as our face to face offerings. 

How it works

Students use a variety of devices in taking online classes, but you’ll need access to the internet on a device that can perform basic functions such as word processing, document uploading, and viewing of video materials.  HCC currently uses the learning management platform Moodle to deliver its online classes and provide a digitally-engaged space for students. 

Online classes are not self-paced, so students have due dates similar to an on campus class.  Online classes do not require students to be online together at a specific time but do provide asynchronous opportunities for students to interact with each other.  Blended, or hybrid, classes may have synchronous meeting times similar to a face to face class, but hosted in Zoom so that students may attend from anywhere.

Are you 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 tutoring, academic advising, career guidance, and our Help Desk are all available to assist students.
