Welcome to Distance Learning at HCC

Distance Learning offers students the opportunity to take college courses online or in hybrid delivery methods. Courses meet the same objectives, content, competencies, and transferability as campus-based courses – the only difference is the delivery method.

At this time, Hillsborough Community College cannot admit non-Florida residents for online programs or classes. All applicants must have a verifiable Florida address. 


MyHCC (Canvas learning management system) is the portal through which you access your distance learning courses. Used at colleges and universities throughout the nation including USF and UCF, Canvas is considered intuitive and user-friendly. Check the links below for an overview and resource guides.
