Center for International Education

Welcome to the Center for International Education at Hillsborough Community College!

HCC believes in the importance of international education--teaching our domestic and international students to become globally competent citizens. That is why HCC established its Center for International Education (CIE) in 2001. Today, we provide programming and support services for international students attending the College on an F-1 visa, promote study abroad programs, support faculty development opportunities, and facilitate initiatives aimed at internationalizing the curriculum. The CIE is HCC's gateway to international experiences--on our campuses, in the classroom, and in the community.
