4 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is every type of person you can think of at HCC.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My counselors have always tried to work with when I needed my classes. Sometimes the credit I needed didn't correspond with my schedule. I am one of those people who try to do everything though. My credits transferred and I have not had any frustrations.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I technically am not in a "program" because HCC is a community college. Even though I am not in a program HCC offers courses that I needed to transfer to a four year program. I took Environmental Science honors and Geology. Both courses utilized a variety of learning activities such as field trips to local parks and presentations to help learn material which was nice.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There is a lot of things offered at HCC. They have an Honors program which is awesome, we just got a new S.T.E.M. program, and we also have a popular EMT/Emergenct Responder program as well. Class registration is not complicated as long as you do not procrastinate. I have not had too much of a heavy work load in most of my courses, even honors classes, but I still have had a few that have had a lot of work. I would estimate two classes in the last two years.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: I am in the honors program at HCC and it has been great in terms of an alumni network. The college career center employees always seem helpful and there actually is a HCC job fair that is about to happen sometime this week. It was even advertised on the news.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Convenient location, small class sizes, able to speak to your Professor one on one, and they make you feel like a human being and not just a number

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I have not utilized those services fully however, I plan on in the near future

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: the tuition and financial aid process was easy to understand, tuition is reasonable and the financial aid office really takes the time to explain everything to you concerning your financial aid and they break it down for you.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Very convenient, with class flexibility and no hassle, however I had no credits to transfer

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: They were easy to understand, even for someone like me, who had never taken any online courses

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There is a lot of homework, however it makes you think, also appreciate when you do well, that this is what you earned from all you hard work.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I like most of them, but in my field there is a lot of math, however the courses are not boring, and all the other processes are easy to understand and if you don't there is always someone there to help you, even other students.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I like the fact that the Administrative Staff are always available to answer my questions and I don't have to wait forever to see them, also I wish that this school would turn into a 4 year campus, because I do not want to go to a big over crowed University where the students seem to be a number and not a name.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I don't have time to utilize all of the resources that they have, however the ones that I do use are open and available for me.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Computers are always available and that is always a plus for me.

Most students agree that their overall experience at Hillsborough College has been a good one. HCC has several comprehensive academic programs, and the great thing about being enrolled in specified programs is usually you have a small roster of professors who teach all of the required classes. That way, you’re able to build rapport with those professors and establish a great working relationship.

Students rely on the ability to mix and match their classes each semester, with some classes on campus and some distance learning (online) classes. Doing so gives them the ability to take care of their responsibilities at home with their families and still get all of their school work completed. Most of the faculty at HCC consider their students to be an extension of their family and are committed to making their success a reality. They offer the students guidance and support so that the students never feel alone in the process.

So, whether you go to HCC to perfect a skill or complete an entire program, you’ll find that the school can be your constant home for learning. Students there highly recommend HCC to anyone, of any age, who is interested in making an investment toward their future!
