Online Learning at HCC

Featuring exceptional faculty, our online courses meet the same high academic standards of our on-campus courses. Choose from our flexible semester schedules and take a course or earn your degree from anywhere.

We offer two types of online classes. Register for the type of online course that will work best for you. 

Online: With live class meetings - Fully online instructor-led course, with live interactive weekly class meetings facilitated by your instructor in Canvas. Meetings and communication are through chat, email and/or videoconferencing. Faculty and students are online at the same time for the class meetings with additional online work done on their own.

Online: No live class meetings - Fully online, instructor-led course, without mandatory class meetings. Instructor communication and feedback is through Canvas. Students can access class resources and complete work on their own schedule (by posted due dates), as the instructor releases materials. Faculty and students are not necessarily online at the same time unless an appointment is scheduled.
