    I came here to get my AS immediately after High School. I have never had a worse experience. The campus is nasty, none of the professors are easy to work with and I've had nothing but trouble from the online systems.

    I started this school in the fall of 2016 and it has been a great experience since. This is the perfect place to achieve your Associates or a stepping stone to get your Bachelors. There are many programs to choose from and many electives to enjoy.

    First impression of the Plant City campus was small but clean and focused. Initially friendly staff and efficient when scheduling times. The fact that you do not need an appointment to meet with an advisor is extremely helpful!

    i have not attended this college yet, but i am currently graduating high school and will be enrolling in hillsborough community college for the fall semester. this college has interested me due to its care for their students, its low cost, and the amount of other students who have had a positive experience going here. i am moving all the way from michigan to florida to be attending this college. i researched their dental hygiene program and saw the high success rate, and the amount of graduates with associates degrees.

    So, I know you want to go to big name universities, but you can get the same degree for a cheaper cost at HCC first then transfer. Earning some college experience at HCC shows other universities that you are capable to do work on the college level and therefore more likely to accept you. If you think community college is too easy, try enrolling in the honors program for a more rigorous education.

    Hillsborough Community College (HCC) is an excellent choice for continuing education whether solely seeking an Associate's Degree or planning to transfer to a four-year college. With class sizes averaging 25 students, instructors are readily available to assist their classes in their pursuit of excellence. On-campus housing, low tuition, 160 different degree programs, and student government activities make HCC worth your time and effort.

  • Jan-12-2016 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    HCC, worst college anyone could attend. After months and months of trying to register for classes and speak with an advisor nothing happened. I would call and they would tell me someone would email me and get back with me weeks would go by and still nothing. I am a distance learner and currently living overseas, after calling they told me I would have to come in. Well, what is the point of distance learning if you have to go into the school? HCC is absolutely ridiculous, in order to register for my classes I need an advisor. I called for an advisor and what do I get? Someone tells me that there aren't anymore advisors available! So what am I to do? There was a woman who I briefly spoke to, to help me. She did none of the sort. I told her that I had sent in both my official transcripts and SAT scores in PRIORITY mail, I was told she couldn't find them. After that she closed the ticket as if she had solved the problem which she didn't! Her emails were very unorganized and made no sense. Her grammar was off and she had many words missing. Are the people working there that uneducated? I received no student support. I recently just gave up on finishing my registration because it was literally impossible for me to attend this school. HCC is the most irresponsible and laziest school I have ever seen. I cannot believe how bad the service was. After this I will not attend HCC nor should anyone else who wants to do distance learning there.

    I think it is an enjoyable school simply because of its environment. The students here are all very down to earth people. Along with the teachers who take pride in their jobs.

    Honestly, so far, I hate Hillsborough Community College. The advisers don't really know anything about any degree(planning on transferring back to University of Tampa) and their office loses EVERYTHING and requires tons of paperwork; but to top it off, rather than saying ,Okay. This is the list of paperwork we need they like to kinda just string you a long while losing some important documents(so always make a copy!) However, it's cheaper than any other school... So you're really getting what you pay for.
