HCC's online degrees and certificates make it easier than ever for busy people to earn a degree. Plus, our partnerships with four-year colleges and universities make transfering simple! In addition to our 100% online programs, many of our 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 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 – they only tell you when it's due.

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 tutors are available to assist with academics, advisors are available to offer transfer and career guidance, and our HelpDesk and MERC students can help resolve any technical issues.
