Hillsborough Community College Reviews

Hillsborough Community College (HCC) is exactly what I needed and I’m glad I made the decision to begin my studies there, before transferring to a 4-year university.

The school offers the usual amenities of any college including: housing, meal plans, extracurriculars, service and interest clubs, as well as a handful of study abroad programs! There is also an honors program, where students who meet specific qualifications are allowed to enroll in “honors only” courses! All at lower costs and with smaller class sizes, than at a typical 4-year university.

To top it all off: HCC also GUARANTEES admission to all public four-year colleges in FL, upon completion of your AA/AS degree! Seriously, you can’t not make it into university if you start here first!

I would definitely recommend it to anyone as a start towards their higher academic career.

HCC was a wonderful experience for me. The class sizes are great, most of my professors were awesome and I feel like I got a great education. HCC is the perfect transition step from high school to university. It is also affordable, I was able to pay my way through and not take out debts. I used the writing commons and was able to get help with papers. I loved HCC, go hawks!
My personal experience with Hillsborough Community College can be summed up in three words: engaging, stimulating, and rewarding. Hillsborough Community College's professors genuinely care about each student's success! Professors are hands-on and dedicated to their students, this allows for a captivating classroom setting. This community college is large enough to offer all students a dynamic & diverse college experience.
