Welcome to HCC’s Center for International Education (CIE)!
The dedicated professionals who staff the CIE provide specialized services to international (F-1 visa) students; and we promote study abroad, faculty professional development, and initiatives aimed at internationalizing the curriculum.
If you are an international student, we recognize the courage and initiative required to leave home and pursue higher education in the United States. As you consider whether HCC is the place for you, explore this website and visit us on Facebook. You will discover that HCC is a great place to start. Begin Here. Go Anywhere!
We will help you to adjust to life in another culture and optimize your two years with us. Our passionate faculty will work with you to ensure your academic success. You will get the help you need to navigate all the choices offered to you when choosing a 4-year institution to complete your bachelor’s degree.
If you need another reason to choose HCC, take a look at Hawk’s Landing – our luxury student housing. You will have your own private bedroom and bathroom, and enjoy access to the gym and swimming pool – a pool that you can use almost every day in beautiful Florida, widely known as the Sunshine State!
Our academic community currently welcomes international students from over 130 nations. We invite you to join us in Tampa Bay, Florida!
