Hillsborough Community College is a two-year institution offering associate degrees. The school operates five campuses around Florida, in South Shore, Brandon, Plant City, Ybor City, and Dale Mabry. Many students choose to study liberal arts and humanities, emergency medical technician work, or police and criminal science. HCC also offers employee training, continuing workforce education, and online programs.
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.

I feel that this school will give me the start to my academic college career I need. I plan to attend for one full year. Soon after transfer to another college geared more towards my career choice.
