    The prices are CHEAP, which is a really great thing for any college student. Less student debt to pay in the future. The classes are totally worth it, just pick the right professor to help you learn and is there whenever something is difficult.

    Totally affordable. I wouldn't buy my books for any classes until after the first week of class just to make sure the professor intends on using them. So far, I've only had to use 3 books my 2 years there.

    I'm glad to say HCC was the best route for me. I saved A LOT of money for my basic class courses compared to Universities.
