Welcome from the Director

Welcome to HCC's Center for International Education! 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 find out what's happening at HCC by joining us on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter

You will discover that HCC is a great place to start for international students who dream of earning a 4-year bachelor’s degree in the United States. We help you to explore all your university options while you complete your first two years of university study with us.  If you want to attend a selective 4-year, liberal-arts institution, a nationally-ranked university, or an Ivy League school, we help you get there!  

The dedicated professionals who staff the CIE 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. 

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!
