HCC's Education Center at MacDill Air Force Base

The Center located at 8102 Condor Street, Building 252, on MacDill Air Force Base is open to civilians, military personnel and active duty military.  The center is open for student support from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Thursday and is closed on Fridays and federal holidays.

Designed to meet the needs of the military:

  • Military personnel and active duty military are always given priority in registering for classes. 
  • The program at MacDill is based on an accelerated instructional format of five 8-week terms per academic year.
  • Classes are held in the evenings and on weekends in Base-provided classrooms in the Base Education/Library building. 
  • We also offer an online component featuring 10-week courses designed to support forward deployed and temporary duty military personnel.
  • Students may register for MacDill courses at any HCC campus or online via web registration, if eligible.
  •  Military personnel, dependents, and others with unrestricted Base access may register at the Base Center.
  • Students may take classes at MacDill while enrolled in regular-term classes at other HCC locations.

We give you the credit you deserve:
Former and current members of the military may have experience that translates into college credit through our Prior Learning Assessment Program. Find out more here.

"MyMacDill" Community Pride Campaign was created in recognition of MacDill Air Force Base's 75th Anniversary in mid-April, 2015. From April 16, 2015 to September 18, 2015 (the Air Force’s Birthday) we hope to capture thousands of Tampa Bay residents and their stories, photos, and videos through social media.
