Great school to transition to a university. This is my experience I can attest to. I graduated with my associate's degree at HCC. This was a very good and smooth experience. I would recommend this school not only because of my experience, but because of other student's shared opinions I have been privy to as well.

Tell us about your college experience.

The school was a horrible fit for me. As I was in a math and science heavy major I found it very disappointing that there were only hybrid classes available and no option for traditional classes. The added prerequisite requirements for specific classes was absurd and increased the amount of time it took to graduate.


Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes, I used it to transfer to a 4 year State university with an accelerated master program.
