Founded in 1946, HCC proudly offers access to affordable, high quality education and workforce training for all who seek it.
Dedicated faculty and staff, and nearly one hundred degree and certificate programs, prepare students for transfer to a four-year college or immediate entry into the workforce. Online, blended, evening and Saturday classes afford the flexibility needed to accommodate busy lives. Students of all ages and educational levels can take advantage of our comprehensive array of academic support services, innovative instruction, and vibrant arts and cultural offerings.
Throughout the year, HCC is home to numerous recreational and cultural activities and events that are open to the community. View an art exhibit at the Taber Art Gallery, catch a live performance at the Leslie Phillips Theater, enjoy the college's annual Jazz Festival, or come watch one of HCC's competitive varsity athletic games. HCC has the largest disc golf course in Western Massachusetts, and it's free and open to the public. The best place to discover what's happening at HCC is on our online events calendar. We invite you to visit and get to know us!
